And the stupid thing about it is, I make homemade pizza here about once a week. But it does take time, even when I'm using pre-homemade sauce and frozen mozzarella and goat cheese. So when Rhiannon suddenly decides she wants lunch, like right NOW, I pull out a corn dog or pizza from the freezer. It's just too easy to pop a frozen pizza in the oven, plop it in front of her and call it "Lunch".
So what did I finally do last night while making our almost-weekly pizza for pizza & movie night? I actually made a mini-pizza and froze it!
My batch of dough is usually made into one large pizza crust and a pan of bread sticks. But this time I made the usual large pizza and then a smaller pizza. I partially cooked the small pizza crust then put the sauce & cheeses on it (Rhiannon is a cheese-only kind'a kid) then wrapped it in aluminum foil and stuck it in the freezer.
The next time Rhiannon is hankering for lunch and I'm too busy to prepare a real meal, I'm going to go into the freezer and take out my homemade frozen pizza. And I won't feel quite so guilty.
Now I'll just have to get my bum in gear and freeze some of my homemade corn dogs. Maybe I'll even put the little stick in them like the store-bought ones to make it more "authentic".
