Commercially Prepared Unbaked Pizzas:

Leave in package and place directly in freezer. Double wrap if necessary.

Freezing Pizza

Homemade Pizza:

Suitable Packaging:

Freezer containers should be moisture and vapor resistant and should not be prone to cracking or breaking at low temperatures. Containers should provide protection against absorbing flavors or odors and should be easy to label. Suitable packaging for freezing pizza and pizza crust includes freezer-grade plastic wrap and heavy-duty aluminum foil.

Maximum Storage Time:

Store homemade pizza for 3 months and commercially prepackaged frozen pizza for up to 1 year at 0ºF.

Thaw & Serve:

For homemade pizzas, loosen foil and bake with or without thawing in 375ºF oven until heated through. For commercially prepackaged pizzas, remove wrapper and bake according to instructions. Defrost leftover sauce in microwave or thaw in double boiler on low heat.

Tips & Shortcuts:

Prepare and freeze pre-baked crusts ahead of time to have on hand when you need them. Freeze leftover meat, vegetables and cheese to use as toppings.

Refrigerating Pizza:

Wrap leftover cooked pizza in aluminum foil and keep in the refrigerator 1 to 2 days. To reheat, leave in foil and place in warm oven or remove foil and heat in microwave.
