Pizza Prep

If there is one thing that both kids and adults enjoy often its pizza. Ordering it from the local neighborhood pizzeria is very comforting. But, prepping the pizza base gives you the flexibility of making a pizza in less than 5 minutes. When I was reading through Mario Batali's book, I found his pizza making tip that he uses at his restaurant very useful. He suggests cooking individual portions of the pizza base (9 inch) on stove top and freezing them. On pizza days, use the base, add the sauce and topping and broil for a few minutes and voila you have your pizza ready. For the last week and a half we have been customizing our own individual pizzas. For those of you who have a busy schedule and enjoy pizza, a few minutes of prep work can make all the difference. Such an awesome lesson learnt from the Iron Chef.


Rolling Pin
Cutting Board
Wax Paper
Ziploc bag


Pizza Dough - divided into equal portions (The pizza dough I had made eight 9 inch pizza bases)
Pizza Toppings ( sauce, veggies, fruits, cheese) - as per taste


1. Once the dough is divided into equal portions, cover it with a damp bowl and allow it to rest for 10 minutes.

2. Roll our into 9 inch circle with 1/2 inch thickness and cook it on the heated iron griddle.

3. Remove and cool the base. Place it on a wax paper and cover the base with another wax paper. Place the pizza bases in a ziploc freezer bag and place it in the freezer.

4. When its pizza time, remove a base, add the sauce, cheese and toppings and broil in the oven. Place the tray in the level closest to the broiler. Broil for 2 - 3 minutes. Serve it hot.
