Shop Reduced Bread for "Pizza Crust"

To make sure I always have "pizza crusts" available in my freezer to make quick pizzas for a hasty supper or for individual pizzas or snacking pizzas, I shop the reduced bread rack at the grocery store. I find lots of great reduced deals at Kroger and Wal-Mart, to name a couple major chains. At these stores, I commonly find marked down specialty flat breads which are great for making little pizzas. I would never pay full price for these breads, but they mark down very cheaply. I buy all of them and put them in the freezer for future use.


My favorites are: soft flatbreads made for sandwich wraps, pitas and naan flatbread (which also come in garlic flavor) These are all thicker than tortillas to make a sturdier crust, but still cook quickly and taste like "real pizza."

To assemble these, I grab some breads out of the freezer and put them under the oven broiler to begin to cook for a few minutes while I just reach for leftover meat or pepperonis (which I keep in the freezer), some cheese, vegetables and sauce. Since they cook quickly, pre-cooked ingredients are best. I take the breads which have been browning out of the oven, top with some sauce, sprinkle on the cheese and add the cooked meat or pepperonis and vegetables. Then they go back under the broiler for a few minutes with a careful eye, or in the oven at 425 degrees F for a few minutes. I've never tried these in the microwave but it may work.

My family says the crust on these tastes just like regular pizza, but they are fast and I can make them to individual preference. But they are also very cheap because I bought the crust off the reduced bread rack!

Note: These breads also make a great garlic cheese bread. Substitute butter and garlic powder (or leftover garlic dipping sauce from carry-out restaurant pizza) for the sauce and just add cheese, then broil or bake. Quick and tasty side for lots of meals!
