If you love making your own pizzas, you can save a little time and money by whipping up a few pre-made pizzas of your own! You can make all the fixings yourself so you can feel better knowing there's only good ingredients in there, and it's super convenient too. This is more of a guideline than a hard and fast recipe, so feel free to mix it up with whatever you like best!

The Dough

You can make your own pizza dough (which I'd recommend), or buy some. Once you've got your dough, preheat your oven to 450° Fahrenheit and pop your pizza stone or baking sheet into the oven to heat up. You can separate the dough to make personal sized pizzas or just keep it as one big one. Roll out your dough to the desired thinness, put the dough on a parchment sheet, and pop it into the oven.

Bake your dough in the oven until the dough is dry on the outside and a bit puffy, but not yet browned. Remove the dough from the oven and let it cool completely before working with it again. Once they're cool, you can freeze them plain like this, or proceed to topping the pizzas.

The Toppings

Spread the desired sauce over the top of the pizza. Top your pizza with sauteed vegetables and cooked meats that have cooled to room temp. Sprinkle cheese over the top of the pizza. Lots of different ingredients will work well here, so just pick your favorites.

The Freeze

Place your pizzas on a baking sheet and pop it into the freezer uncovered until it's frozen solid. This will take approximately 3 hours. Once they're frozen, wrap 'em up with 1 layer of plastic wrap and 1 layer of aluminum foil to help keep the pizza from drying out over time.  They should last this way for about 3-5 months!

Baking the Pizza

Preheat your oven to 500° Fahrenheit (or higher, if you wish). If you've got a pizza stone, now's the time to pop that into the oven too. Once the oven is nice and hot, unwrap your pizzas and slide them into the oven to cook. (You can cook the pizzas on the aluminum you wrapped them in, to save some foil too). Bake the pizzas for about 10 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is bubbly.

And here are some Yummly pizza ideas to get your creativity going!
