My daughter is having a garage sale this weekend and I volunteered to help her. In return she will help me with the one I am going to have the middle of July. We have learned the hard way that several people are necessary to keep tabs on things and help customers. Friday is always the busiest day with people lined up well before the garage door goes up at 9:00 am. I have several meal plans for busy days like this and one of my favorites is homemade pizza.
The next time you make your favorite pizza dough recipe make extra and freeze it in pizza size portions. If you take it out of the freezer and put it into the fridge the night before you want to bake it it will be ready to shape and top for dinner the next day. My local grocery store carries a good fresh pizza dough and I often buy several bags of dough for the freezer. I make up little zip lock bags of Canadian bacon, crumbled bacon, diced ham, pepperoni, etc… chopped vegetables; green pepper, red onion, olives, peppers, artichoke hearts, whatever…and grated cheeses…plus little containers of sauce. If I remember to take a selection of whatever sounds good out of the freezer in the morning and put it into the fridge everything will be ready to assemble when I get home. On today’s pizza I used sauce, mozzarella, crisp bacon, Canadian bacon, red onion, tomato and black olive. This isn’t much of a post…it’s the idea I wanted to share. You will be amazed how quickly a delicious meal can be put together if you have the ingredients at hand. Who doesn’t love homemade pizza!
