Bread Recipes From Frozen Dough Easy Pizza

Make Easy Pizza from Frozen Bread Recipes. Bread recipes from purchased frozen bread dough make easy pizza and are an excellent pizza crust. First, I place the mixture in a bowl oiled with olive oil. Then, since my hands, an already oiled, I rub the frozen dough with my hands to start my bread recipes. This prevents drying out during the rising process. I will also mention I place the frozen dough in the bowl before I leave for work in the morning.

Cover the pan with a clean towel or cloth. When you leave employment, the dough has risen, filling the container—lightly oil a cookie sheet, pizza pan, or for a deep dish, a cake pan. Oil your hands and stretch the dough to fit the pan. ( If you use a cake pan, you will have enough for two pizzas). Bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for 5 minutes. Then remove it and get creative. Use pizza sauce, or for a more modern version, use Ranch Salad Dressing instead. Cover with your favorite toppings, then add mozzarella cheese. I like to add several other types of cheese on top. Bake another 10 minutes, and you will have a quick and easy pizza. Personal-size pizzas are lovely for kids' parties.

Bread recipes from frozen dough are numerous. You can make anything from breakfast to supper and dessert with bread recipes and firm dough. I make cinnamon rolls by kneading a little sugar into the dough after it thaws. I like to experiment with bread recipes and have added onions, dill, and another seasoning to the mixture. They were delicious; you probably have ideas of your own. Try some of your favorite toppings and add extra cheese. Please share them in the comment section.

Quick and Easy Pizza For The Family

Since this pizza dough rises while you are at work or on errands, your family will think you have been working on it all day. However, once you taste this pizza, you may never want to buy a prepared pizza again. This is a deep dish baked in a round cake pan. The heavier the pan the better the crust with brown.

Try different toppings, and it doesn't just have to be pizza. Many bread recipes, including pizza, can be made into desserts. Use toppings like chocolate chips, fruit, cream cheese, or any other foods that sound appealing to you. I like it with just cinnamon sugar and butter. Try experimenting with your favorite dessert topping. How about marshmallows, nuts, or caramel for a unique dessert?

Children love to cook, and by allowing them to top their pizza, you will find that the fussiest eaters will discover the joy of eating. My family likes it with pasta dishes. I take the dough, spread it across the pan, rub it down with olive oil, sprinkle a little garlic, top with parmesan cheese, and bake. Finally, I cut it into strips for homemade garlic bread.

Make extra and wrap in plastic, store in a large zip lock bag, and store in the freezer. This is an excellent snack for cocktail hour or a quick, easy dinner on date night for the kids. Plan and purchase enough dough and topping for several extra pizzas. Then, you will be happy when you have a pizza to reheat.

If you plan on storing your pizza for any length of time, you may want to cut it into slices, freeze it on a tray, then place it into a zipper bag; this way, you won't have to bother trying to pull it apart when frozen. This is perfect for the kids; they can grab a single slice and microwave heat it for a quick and easy snack or meal.

I like pizza and your recipe sounds great. I'll have to try it when the grandchildren are visiting.

Leiping on July 09, 2013:

I'd like to try this recipe but I don't think I've ever seen frozen bread dough in the store. Then again I've never looked for it either so next time I'm there I will see if they have some.

Barbara Isbill from New Market Tn 37820 on June 10, 2013:

Great idea!

Mary from Chicago area on June 09, 2013:

I have informed my 3 teenagers that they'll be making dinner for our family once a week this summer, and first up on their list is homemade pizza. Am sure they'd like the shortcut of frozen bread dough! Will mention it....

castelloautore on June 01, 2013:

Not a bad idea, considering that pizza and bread though originally were the same.


LisaDH on May 27, 2013:

Awesome idea! I'm going to have to try this with my kids. :-)

kimadagem on March 04, 2013:

What great ideas. I haven't tried it yet but I'd like to use the dough from my breadmaker for some mini-pizzas like lionmom does.

lionmom100 on February 23, 2013:

This is a good idea. I have used Bread dough from my breadmaker to make pizza. I love the ones you make yourself so much better.

Ellen Gregory from Connecticut, USA on February 06, 2013:

Ranch salad dressing? That sounds really different and good.

Tony Bonura from Tickfaw, Louisiana on November 03, 2012:

My brother uses frozen bread dough to make his pizzas. Great information. Except for one thing--I hate ranch dressing. I think I may the only person in the world who does--it leaves a really bad after taste in my mouth.


Tea Pixie on October 14, 2012:

This is awesome! What an easy way to make a delicious meal that the kids will celebrate as if it is junk food, but I'll know exactly what is in the pizza. heh heh heh

WriterJanis2 on October 14, 2012:

What an easy way to make homemade pizza.

Beverly Lemley from Raleigh, NC on October 02, 2012:

Very nice ~ and to have the bread baking smell fill the home soon after you get home would be terrific! I like the idea of ranch dressing instead of tomato sauce ~ the suggestion opens up a whole new world of choices, actually! Thanks! B : )

JoshK47 on September 20, 2012:

Very cool idea!

Susan Deppner from Arkansas USA on September 19, 2012:
