pizza bases
« on: September 21, 2014, 16:32 »
Now I have more freezer space I would like to make my own pizza bases to freeze instead of making them fresh. should I freeze them risen raw or cook them slightly?

I bake mine until they're almost done, then I let them cool completely, top them with sauce, cheese and veggies, wrap them in cling film and then in tin foil and stick them in the freezer. If I cook them before I freeze them it keeps them from getting soggy when I go to cook the pizza.

Ma'am, what I really want to ask, is how do you have space in your freezer just now?

Mrs Growster is beating me round the bonce because I have frozen far too much of everything, and we love small pizzas...

I'll have to ask her what we need to do next, which may well include coming up to your house and crave extra freezer space..;0)

We nearly got a project going on the football club site, but found that there was a just a 'leettle' more to building something  there, than the management and the council understood, or had ideas about...

Exit Growster..;0)

I cook my pizza bases at a high heat for about 3 minutes until they are just cooked.

Stops the bases going soggy.

Cool them, wrap in cling film and stack in the freezer like records. I don't put a sauce on  until I am ready to cook them.

And like Growster, I am wondering how you have space in your freezer. :ohmy:

I have 3 x 13 cubic foot freezers and they are jam packed with fruit and veg. I was floating the idea of buying another freezer.  :unsure:

Well we will be OK for fruit and veg  :lol: :D
but it is a tad worrying that I only have that 2 large drawers in one of the freezers for meat and fish.

Will have to feed Mr Bee more homemade cake  ice cream to free up some space for protein.

And have to make some fruit into jam to make space. Mum has just given me a carrier bag of frozen Damsons and is threatening me with another of frozen plums. I suppose I don't really have to sleep.  :(

I suppose that having a good butcher solves the meat problems, in that we just have what we buy that particular week!

But of course, Mrs Growster will then make an enormous casserole, and we'll freeze half of it, so I have to make sure the balance of veg allows for this!

Mrs Growster has just re-packed every drawer in two undercounter freezers, and announced that there is still some room for apple...

Some old soup had to go though..;0(

Not enough room in my freezers for pizza bases.  I've got an under counter one, a medium and a large chest freezer, all full.  As well as the rest of the last piggy, we've still got 9 Turkey's left from last year and lots of wings and drumsticks!

Hadn't even thought about storing them as bases.  I store mine as balls of dough - that way if I want to make it into pittas etc instead I can.

Likewise store in balls of dough - they keep perfectly well in the freezer and are ready to roll out and top. I've got one of these, which makes amazing pizzas, but you do need somewhere for it to live. (my oven is pants, and living with an Italian means we make lots of pizza/piadina/pasta)
