It's not delivery - it's a freezer full of pizza crusts!

Having been inspired by Money Saving: Mom's 4 Weeks to Fill Your Freezer I have been using my baby's (infrequent) naps to do some quick freezer cooking.

Today while getting dinner ready I made 4 pizza crusts and threw them in the freezer.

I am a big believer in knowing what's in your food, that's why I make my own crusts because I know exactly what is in them.

Also, they costs way less than $1 a piece to make.

It's a simple recipe and freezes great. When you're ready to make a pizza just throw it in the fridge for a few hours and then voila!

What you'll need:

2 cups all-purpose flour (preferably unbleached, but whatever you have works)

2 cups whole wheat flour

2 tsp yeast

2 tsp olive oil

3 cups HOT water (but not boiling)

In a bowl combine your flour, yeast, oil and water. Mix everything together. Cover and let bulk for 30 minutes.

Once your dough has bulked sprinkle with a little more flour so that it is easy to work with and divide into 4 sandwhich bags. Throw them in the freezer.


When you're ready to serve you will need to flour your surface and roll out the dough. Then bake 10 minutes at 350 before topping and baking again.

Just to make sure I'm understanding it, in order to make the dough to freeze, you follow all of your instructions (including adding the water & oil) up until you say, 'When you are ready to serve...."? So,you don't just freeze the dry ingred. but you can actually go ahead and mix in the wet ingred. then freeze?..Then when ready to make,thaw in fridge & start with ,'When ready to serve...'? This sounds so easy...I want to try it.

Yes Ann, you mix it and then freeze. I will edit it to make that more clear. It freezes so great and is really, really easy.
