Our family's answer to pricey "all-meat" take-out pizza, this freezer meal was a household staple when the children were growing up. It feeds hungry teens nicely!


12 ounces
mozzarella cheese, grated
1⁄4 pound
italian sausage, browned
1⁄4 pound
ground beef, browned
1⁄4 cup
onion, chopped and sauteed
2 ounces
pepperoni slices
2 tablespoons
parmesan cheese
pizza crust
1 1⁄2 cup
marinara sauce


To assemble: prepare Pizza Crust and Marinara Sauce as directed.

Spray pizza pan with non-stick cooking spray or brush with olive oil. Gently stretch Pizza Crust to fit pan, forming raised edge at lip. Sprinkle crust with grated mozzarella cheese.

Dot with browned sausage, ground beef, pepperoni and chopped and sauteed onion. Gently spread Marinara Sauce to cover cheese and toppings. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and salt to taste.

To freeze: flash freeze pizza in pan. When frozen, wrap in aluminum foil.

To prepare: do not thaw pizza. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Bake frozen pizza for 20 to 25 minutes, until crust is browned, sauce bubbles and cheese is fully melted.


NOTES : This tried-and-true method preserves a fresh, crisp crust even through the freezing process!

The secret's in the cheese; when applied to the crust before any toppings or sauce, the cheese seals the crust against the moisture in the sauce. Do not thaw before baking.
