How to Make Frozen Pizza at Home
Torn between the convenience of store-bought, frozen pizza, and the customizability of homemade? Don't fret, you can have your pizza and eat it, too! The team at The Kitchn shows you how to craft your own frozen pizza below.
The first trick is to par-bake the crust, which sounds more complicated than it really is. Par-baking really just means you partially bake the crust before topping and freezing it. This ensures an extra-crisp crust and zero sogginess upon final baking.
The second trick is to wrap the par-baked and topped pizzas first in plastic wrap and then in aluminum foil. This double layer protects pizzas and their toppings from drying out in the freezer, which leads to freezer burn and a less-than-stellar pizza. Wrapped this way, pizzas can be kept frozen for up to three months.
