How to Make Homemade Frozen Pizzas

Take an afternoon and make a batch of your own homemade frozen pizzas.
What a relief it is to grab one out of the freezer when dinner is rushed!

Growing up Thursday nights was frozen pizza night.  My dad headed off to the country club for men's night, either to play golf or cards.  So it was us siblings at home with mom.  Almost always a frozen Tombstone pizza was thrown in the oven.

I would be scared to actually find out how many frozen pizzas I've eaten in my lifetime.  It was certainly at least one a week from the ages of birth {well, okay, maybe 3} until I left for college at 17.  That is a lot of frozen pizza.

But, I don't blame my mom or the convenience of it.  It was easy and quite frankly good. Now today, if we purchase pizza, we prefer the fresh Papa Murphy's take-n-bake, SO much better, but I am still not above a frozen pizza.  It fills the belly.

With all this being said, I recently saw a couple of blogs where they made their OWN frozen pizza.  I didn't even know that was possible.  So, I semi followed their directions and set out to make two of my own on Friday, when the kiddos napped.

It's quite simple!

How to Make Homemade Frozen Pizzas


Step 1: Prepare pizza dough.  I use this recipe.  It never fails me.

Step 2:  Gather all ingredients and preheat oven and pizza stone to 425 degrees.  I love this pizza stone as it has handles!

Step 3:  Roll/stretch out dough to desired shape.  Place dough on hot pizza stone and bake for 3-5 minutes.  Just until it is starting to cook and easy to remove from oven.

Step 4:  Place par-baked dough on a baking sheet and assemble {sauce, cheese, toppings}.

Step 5:  Place in a deep freeze or freezer for at least 45 minutes, uncovered.

Step 6:  Remove from freezer and tightly wrap in plastic wrap, also including directions for baking.  {Most pizzas will reheat at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or so}.

Step 7:  Place back in freezer, where the pizza can stay for up to 3 months.


After this, I promptly opened a bottle of wine that night.  It had been quite a week.  The little miss came down with chicken pox {yes, even after the vaccine}.  Thankfully she felt fine, just had a trunk full of spots, but it did require here to be in quarantine for many days.

Being stuck at home is not fun with two filled-with-energy toddlers.


I needed this wine.  Please don't judge.

  1. Great idea. I used to do this, but haven't for a while.

    And if anyone ever judges you for wine...well that's just wrong!

    Hahaha, no judgement here! Sometimes wine is very necessary :-)

    Thanks Jolene! Wine is sometimes a MUST in my house. Or a nice cold beer. I'm not ashamed.

  5. Whenever a friend is sick, or is home from the hospital, I always send a bunch of homemade frozen pizzas over - then they can decide when its convenient.


    Poor little Miss - hope the chicken pox aren't too bad for her - wine is definitely in order! :D
