A backup meal like frozen pizza can be a lifesaver on a busy weeknight. And while the store-bought variety is always a simple and convenient choice, our Culinary Content Manager, Sandy Wolner, can help you save money and time with her tips for make-ahead homemade frozen pizzas. Plus, everyone gets the toppings they want!.
Pizza night can’t get any easier than this. Add water and oil to make a delicious golden-brown crust. Just add your favorite toppings!
This pan is just right for crispy pizza flatbread or reheating leftover pizza so that it’s just as good as the day you made (or ordered) it.
These V-shaped blades won’t squish soft foods while cutting them, and the Quick Slice is big enough to slice a big ball of fresh mozzarella or a bunch of little balls all at once.
Like a convection oven, superheated air circulates, giving food a crispy texture, but there’s no preheating, saving you time.

Sandy's Prep Tips
- Preheat your pan for even crispier crusts.
- Par-baking helps keep crusts from getting soggy.
- Double wrapping in plastic wrap and foil helps prevent freezer burn and keeps the toppings from drying out.
- Stored this way, pizzas will last up to 3 months in the freezer.
- A frozen mini pizza gets a nice, crisp crust using a mini cast iron skillet in an air fryer. Check out more cool things to make in a mini cast iron skillet.
