Yield

Three 8 inch Pizzas

  • Create Dough

     Add dry ingredients to processor or stand mixer and mix to combine.
     
     While the processor or stand mixer is running, add water and oil and mix until a dough ball forms, about 1 minute. Add the oil and water slowly while mixing so it incorporates consistently.
     
    Chef Tip: We suggest adding half of the water first, adding the oil, then add the rest of the water. This will help emulsify the oil and water together creating a smooth and elastic dough.
     
    Divide the dough into 3 equal parts and place each in separate containers.
     
    Refrigerate for at least 1 day and up to 3 days
     
  • Create and Freeze Pizzas

    Remove dough from the refrigerator and shape into balls.
     
    Let the dough ball rest at room temperature covered for 2 hours.
     
    Stretch your dough out to 8 inch pizza rounds and place on sheet pans with parchment paper.
     
    Spoon on the pizza sauce and add mozzarella cheese. Add the toppings of your choosing.
     
    Wrap the entire sheet pan in plastic wrap and freeze.
     
  • Bake Pizza

    To heat, place frozen pizza directly on the oven rack in the center of a preheated 425 degree Fahrenheit  oven for 15 minutes.
     
    Let it rest for 3 minutes then Enjoy.
