I used to think that I was a pizza fan. Now with two kids, I know true pizza fans. No matter how picky they are, my kids have decided (currently) that this is pizza the best. I’ve been whipping up a batch of this pizza crust recipe with some homemade pizza sauce a few times this summer just to keep the fans happy. This crust recipe easily makes one large pizza or 8-10 “personal” (salad plate size) pizza crusts. I prebake them on parchment paper, cool them, and slide the crusts (on parchment still) into a freezer bag and freeze. Then I take them out and heat them up, top and bake for 11-14 minutes.
I’ve even made a batch for a kid pizza party this summer. Everything eaten at the party was gluten free – and NONE of the kids even suspected. Sure made it easier for me to serve everyone. The girls have two friends who are gluten free and we make every effort to keep them included in the fun. It was so easy to just pull these out of the fridge (I made them the day before), along with the sauce and hit the road. A girlfriend hosted the baking (she has air conditioning, and the other mom and I don’t – LOL). The other mom brought the toppings (cheese, etc) and we were set. The kids all made their pizzas and while they baked, they played. We chatted. Eat. Chat. And continue on. It was fun.
Here’s the recipe I used to make the crusts:
We also used this recipe to bake a “flatbread” with some olive oil brushed on top and sprinkled with sea salt. The kids love dipping it in to the pizza sauce too. Perfectly delicious.
Hope you are all well –
