Doctored Up Frozen Pizza
Does anyone else have days where you come home straight-up exhausted and cooking a meal from scratch is the last thing you want to do? I think we all have been there, and sometimes you just need a shortcut (and PIZZA)! Well, my friends, you are in for a real treat with this post because this beautiful pizza came out of the freezer and out of the oven in under 30 minutes. Read on for my favorite tricks to doctor up a frozen pizza the next time you want a perfect pizza with little effort and time.
I have become quite fond of rising crust (and stuffed crust) frozen pizzas as a result of work. Frozen pizza really can be pretty darn good, especially when extra toppings have been added. I also love the fact that they are inexpensive, consistent, and do not create a mess in the kitchen. Paired the pizza with a side salad topped with lots of veggies, and you have a lovely meal!
Once all of the extra toppings have been added, you can make some pretty interesting and flavorful improvements, regardless of brand! Regular crust frozen pizzas can be doctored up using the methods below, too. The main things to keep in mind for success are the following:
Be aware you may need increase the baking time—watch carefully as the pizza bakes.
Use creativity but don’t add too many toppings.
Add ingredients at varying stages of baking, as necessary. Ingredients like peppers should be added at the start, whereas a fast baking ingredient like fresh mozzarella should be added during the last 5 minutes of baking.
For this particular pizza, the entire pizza was topped with the following:
Sliced Mini Peppers
Grated Parmesan on the crust
Dried Italian Herb Blend
Rob’s half also included the following:
Mango Habanero Cheese
Red Pepper Flakes
The next time you’re looking to prepare a tasty and easy meal, doctor up a frozen pizza. That parmesan crust may have been the best part! Bon appetite, my friends!
