Personal Pizza Homemade Convenience Ideas

Pizza is one of my favorite foods.  I make it at least once a week.

I’ve been single for a long time so if I make a regular size pizza I will will eat too much.

The solution for this was to make a batch of pizza dough and freeze dough balls that will fit in my hand (I have long hands).

On a night when I want pizza, I just take a frozen dough ball out of the freezer and put it into an oiled bowl (in the morning preferably).  Then when I get home after work, the dough has risen and is ready to be made into pizza.

I always be sure to have pizza toppings and sauce on hand. I love pepperoni pizza but BBQ chicken/turkey/pork pizza is runner up.  I will also freeze leftover chicken, turkey and pork for the BBQ pizza, and also take out a portion of this to defrost in the fridge while I’m at work.  Bacon is also delicious on the BBQ pizza and I have even used roasted asparagus.  Once in a while I get creative and make other types of pizzas, but those are my go-to’s.

Do you love pizza too?  Please share your tips, topping ideas, recipes or similar cooking ideas.  I always love to hear from you.

  1. Great idea, Monica. Convenient, yet so thoroughly, and rewardingly, homemade!

    Two personal favorites – one seasonal, a garden pizza with slivered zucchini, diced tomatoes, baby spinach leaves, and garlic – the other offering the sea’s bounty. Thinly-sliced shrimp (or in extravagance, crabmeat) plus the requisite garlic.

    Mama mia!

      1. Thanks, Monica! Regular pizza sauce, usually. When creativity informs effort, though, skinned plum tomatoes pushed through a sieve, then added to garlic sautéed in a generous dollop of butter. Simmer until reduced by a third, stirring and adding shredded basil, salt and pepper. Et voila!

        Cheese with a light hand, as I really don’t care for it. Tried, true (and tired?) mozzarella of course, and an equal share of parmesan. Freshly-grated, please; none of that regrettable dust in the green can! Reggiano if you can find it.
