I remember watching my mother make pizza from scratch as a little girl. Rarely could we afford delivery or even a good freezer pizza, to be honest. But I couldn't care less, because pizza day was a day I could play with my mom in the kitchen. She liked to bake it in cookie sheets for the convenience, so we always had messy rectangles, haha! This year, the memories came back as I yearned to find a good recipe for pizza that could be frozen; something cheaper and healthier than cardboard pizzas in the freezer section.
These days, a quick online search is all you need. Turns out, you can freeze a homemade pizza after you par-bake the crust and add your toppings. I adapted this crust from Bobby Flay's recipe on foodnetwork.com
Total Time: 2 hours
Yield: 3-4 small pizzas

You can either make your own dough or when your supermarket has it on sale buy multiple packages (like 40 cents per lb) and freeze all but one. Place the dough in a slightly oiled bowl & cover with a clean dishtowel and let it rise.
