When I want a quick pizza on a busy night, or the convenience of being able to simply pop one in after a long, hard day store-bought frozen pizzas are all well and good for a quick last minute meal. And while there is finally some gluten free (and one or two gluten AND dairy free) options out there, I prefer to get my convenience food a bit closer to home. Well, actually IN my home by making my own ready to eat frozen pizzas. Homemade pizza can’t be beat for flavor, variety or cost.
I like to get the whole family involved when I can if we are making extra things to put in the freezer, and let me tell ya, pizza is the perfect meal to pull everyone in to help! Kids of almost any age can top the crusts, and older kids can help cook toppings, chop and mix up the dough. It’s a lot of fun to set aside an hour or so on the weekend to hang out with the family and have tasty pizza waiting in the freezer at the end. When making freezer pizzas with the kids, however, I always bake one of our creations for dinner that night. Nothing like the savory reward of a job well done! YUM!
