DIY Homemade Pizza.  Great to have on hand for a quick dinner.

Hi again! This is Tina from Mommy's Kitchen, and I am back with a easy recipe to share with y'all. June is Pizza Month on the Rhodes Bake-N-Serve Blog. As a contributing Guest Blogger for Rhodes I'm so excited to be a part of Pizza Month! At our house Friday night is usually pizza night.  

We always make our pizza instead of delivery, because it tastes better and is so much cheaper. I usually make my pizza dough from scratch, but I also love the convenience of using Rhodes Dinner Rolls to make my pizza crust. The dinner rolls are white bread, but they also make a cracked wheat version, and whole wheat bread that works wonderfully for a wheat crust.

Rhodes Pizza night makes it so easy!

Pizza night is always my favorite night to cook dinner because it's a quick meal that I can  just throw together and bake it. Plus I know everyone loves a good pizza, so I usually don't get any complaints. 

 With one bag of Rhodes Dinner Rolls (36 count) you can easily make 4 Homemade Frozen Pizzas. I usually spend one afternoon preparing the frozen pizzas and then wrapping and storing them to use later. 

 

Rhodes DIY Pizzas, have a few ready ahead of time!

I love having a few of these DIY Frozen Pizzas on hand in my freezer. They especially come in handy when you don't want to cook, or you need to get dinner on table rather quickly. These pizzas are easy to make and taste much better than anything you will find in the freezer section of your grocery store. Plus you get to add all your favorite toppings and not have anything extra that you don't like which you find on store bought pizzas. Let’s get started and make some pizza!!!!!

 

Rhodes Homemade Pizza

 

Start by thawing out 9 dinner rolls (per pizza) on a greased baking sheet. I made two pizzas so 18 rolls. Thaw the rolls until room temperature, but still a bit cold.

Once the rolls are thawed combine 9 rolls into one dough ball on a greased surface and roll out into a circle to your preferred thinness.

 

Rhodes Pizza Dough

Wrap the dough around a rolling pin and transport to a sheet of parchment paper. I like to sprinkle a little corn meal on before adding the pizza. This ensures that the pizza won't stick to the paper or stone after baking.

Let the pizza dough rest for 30 minutes (I like to use disposable pizza trays while the dough rests and for storage). After 30 minutes transfer one pizza dough at a time (I leave the parchment paper on the bottom) onto to a heated pizza stone and par-bake in a 450o oven for 5 minutes or until set.

 

Rhodes Pizza Crust

Remove from the oven and let cool on a wire rack.  By par-baking (partially baking) your pizza crust for about 5 minutes before assembly and freezing you ensure that your crust will be crispy even after freezing.

Once the crusts have been par baked and cooled, top with pizza sauce (store bought or homemade).

Then add all your favorite pizza toppings. I chose to make a pepperoni pizza for the kids and a supreme pizza for hubby and I. There is no rule of thumb here so just use whatever your favorite pizza toppings are. Click here if you need a few ideas.

Once the pizzas are assembled it is time to wrap them for storage. 

 

Rhodes Freezer Pizza

They key to keeping your pizzas from getting freezer burn is to double wrap them. First wrap the pizza in plastic wrap or waxed paper, and then in aluminum foil.

Add a label with the type of pizza and date it. These DIY Homemade Frozen Pizza's will last for up to 3 months in your freezer when properly wrapped and stored.

0.0 / 5  (0 votes, 1 review )

Ingredients

9 - Rhodes frozen dinner rolls (for each pizza), thawed to room temperature
1/2 - cup store bought pizza sauce for each pizza or homemade
Toppings of choice: 
pepperoni slices 
Italian sausage, cooked and crumbled
ground beef, cooked and crumbled
bacon, cooked and crumbled
mozzarella cheese, shredded
green peppers
black olives
green olives
mushrooms
onions
plastic wrap or waxed paper
aluminum foil 

Instructions

Thaw out 9 dinner rolls (per pizza) on a greased baking sheet. Thaw the rolls until room temperature, but still a bit cold.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Place a pizza stone on the middle rack in the oven as it heats (this heats the pizza stone).  
Once the rolls are thawed combine 9 rolls into one dough ball on a greased surface and roll out into a circle to your preferred thinness.   
Wrap the dough around a rolling pin and transport to a sheet of parchment paper. I like to sprinkle a little corn meal on before adding the pizza. This ensures that the pizza won't stick to the paper or stone after baking.
Let the pizza dough rest for 30  minutes (I like to use disposable pizza trays while the dough rests and for storage).   
After 30  minutes transfer one pizza dough at a time (I leave the parchment paper on the bottom) onto to a heated pizza stone and par-bake in a 450o oven for 5 minutes or until set.
 
Remove from the oven and let cool on a wire rack. Par-baking (partially baking) your pizza crust for about 5 minutes before assembly and freezing you ensure that your crust will be crispy even after freezing.
Once the crusts have been par baked and cooled, top with pizza sauce (store bought or homemade) and add pizza toppings of your choice.
Once the pizzas are assembled you can flash freeze them for 30 minutes or just wrap them for storage. I like to place the pizzas back onto the disposable pizza pans for storage, but this is optional.  
First wrap the pizza in plastic wrap or waxed paper, and then in aluminum foil.
Add a label with the type of pizza and date it. Freeze the pizzas for up to 3 months.
 
To Bake the Frozen Pizzas:
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. If you have a baking stone, place it in the oven as it heats. Frozen pizzas can also be baked in a pizza pan or on a sheet of aluminum foil. Unwrap the pizza and slide into the oven onto the pizza stone. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the crust is brown and the cheese is melted, lightly browned and bubbly. Cut into slices and serve immediately.
