My new beautiful Whole Wheat Pizza Dough, combined with my super cool USA Pan bun pan from King Arthur Flour conspired to create these beauties: Mini Frozen Pizza Crusts.
And, while I thought I was brilliant to come up with the way to serve perfect servings of sauce in an ice cube tray. Apparently other people have done that already. But still, it’s perfect for mini pizzas, and heck, even regular-sized pizzas. When you make homemade marinara sauce, sometimes it’s hard to have the right amount on-hand for pizzas and pasta. Ice cubes of delicious sauce are the perfect solution.
So here’s how it goes, bake these beautiful pizza crusts in your pan (or just on a cookie sheet or pizza stone if you don’t have a bun/mini pie pan). You could also bake an even smaller version (think: bagel bites size) in muffin tins. Then freeze the crusts in a bag, freeze your ice cubes of marinara (and pop them into a freezer bag to free up your tray for other things). Then, when you’re ready to have mini pizzas, thaw out a cube and pour it on your crusts. Top with cheese and whatever toppings you like and bake for about 5 minutes at 425 F (until your cheese is melted) OR you could even microwave them for about 1:30!
These are a great after-school snack and great for little lunchboxes.
