So after my first attempt at what I like to call Cheater Pizza (made with pre-made dough), I finally bring you a pizza using homemade dough!
I selected an easy freezer-friendly dough recipe that I had been eyeing up from Money Saving Mom. While I didn’t freeze this dough, I did want to test this particular dough because I think making your own dough and storing it for a day you NEED pizza is a wonderful idea. However – the dough recipe moved along FAST and the work was minimal. Yum!
To make my pizza, I use a nonstick metal pizza pan (the type with holes on the bottom – mine was inexpensive at ALDI). The dough I used allows regular or weight flour to be used, so I used about half of each in the recipe. I really liked how the dough stretched out to fit the entire pan, instead of fighting with it over and over. One batch will make two pizzas.
I par-baked my crust because I HATE dough-y crust. After about 5-7 minutes, I pulled the dough out of the oven and topped with marinara, mozzarella, pepperoni, and pineapple (no one likes pineapple but me! Haters!). Next time, I will brust the outer crust with olive oil, add some more sugar to the dough, and maybe also add some italian seasonings to the dough as well. One day, I will perfect this!
