Well, another freezer cooking weekend challenge is done – homemade frozen pizzas.
The last month or so has been very busy for me so completing these mini challenges every weekend have been helpful in keeping my freezer filled with different meals, starters, and snacks. I plan on fitting in a large freezer cooking session in the next few weeks, once my schedule slows down, but for now the mini sessions are working fine.
This weekend we had dance pictures in addition to dance classes – it was a lot of driving back and forth. With careful planning I was still able to fit in making pizzas for the freezer. I made most of the dough on Saturday and then a couple batches this morning. In the afternoon I had to bring my oldest to one more dance picture and then I needed to run some errands – so I did not start preparing the pizzas till about 3:00. Once I got started they were a cinch to make.
I decided to make 3 large pizzas and 8 individuals. I actually made 4 large pizzas but my family was hungry and wanted one today.
After I par baked them I sat down, took a break, and watch a little mindless TV for ½ hour.
As I started to put the toppings on I realized that I was running out of sauce and pepperoni – oops poor planning on my part. As a result, I made 3 large plain cheese pizzas (one has ½ pepperoni) and left the individuals plain. I am fine with that because I can add the toppings later when I make them. Just having these ready in the freezer will save me so much time during the week.
I wanted to make breakfast sandwiches but did not have the time or energy. Looks like I will have to go old school and actually make breakfast in the morning.
I did make a batch of rice to eat with our dinner tomorrow – slow cooker Thai pork (which by the way I made into a slow cooker freezer kit last weekend).
What about you? Did you get any freezer cooking done this weekend?
