Do you love homemade pizza but don’t feel confident in making the dough? Or maybe you don’t have the time? If so, here’s a little trick. Check with your local Costco or Sam’s Club to see if their Food Court sells pizza dough balls to the public.
I know Sam’s Club does, but I’m not sure about Costco. They’ll sell you a whole box of frozen pizza crust dough that has about 15 or so dough balls. The box costs about $18-20. So you get dough for a large pizza for just over a buck. If you work during the day, just take the dough out of your freezer in the morning and it’ll be ready to go by the time you get home.
Butter or spray a pizza pan or cookie sheet, or use a pizza stone. Spread out the dough, top with sauce, toppings, and cheese and bake at 425 degrees for 12-18 minutes. Easy dinner, light on the budget, and almost completely homemade!
Another great thing is that the dough can be used for so much. Try it as calzones, pizza rolls, breadsticks, or even fry it for quick donuts or fry bread! Or try my dessert S’mores or Janae’s Turkey Stromboli this Thanksgiving!
For individual quick pizzas for lunch at home with the kids, use crescent dough. Either keep it as a triangle or shape it into a circle, then spread the toppings on and bake. It is yummy and a quick solution to have on hand.
