How to make pizza with frozen premade pizza crust

Step 1. Preheat the oven according to frozen premade pizza crust directions.

Take out a large baking sheet that will fit the frozen pizza crust.

Brush half the olive oil on the bottom of the frozen crust. This step will turn the pizza crust golden when it’s in the oven.

Then brush olive oil around the edges of the frozen dough, about 1” wide.

Add a sprinkle of salt around the edges.

Why add olive oil to frozen pizza dough?

Frozen pizza crust is very dry when it’s taken out of the freezer. You need to add a little olive oil to help the crust brown and add some taste.

Step 2. Add dried herbs to the top of the frozen pizza dough.

Add pizza sauce on top of the dried herbs then smooth out the sauce with the back of a spoon.

Add a layer of mozzarella cheese. Add toppings. Top with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese.

Step 3. Bake pizza for the minimum amount of time indicated on the package.

When is frozen pizza crust done cooking?

When the timer is up, check on the pizza. The cheese on top should be bubbling when it’s done and the bottom of the crust should be golden brown.

Once done, let pizza cool and add any other topping and fresh herbs.

What if the frozen pizza crust isn’t browning?

Pop the pizza back in the oven for 1-2 minutes at a time until the pizza looks just right.
