I went to the store prepared to buy several pre-baked pizza crusts. I was very surprised to learn that they cost just under $5 each. I could get 4-5 Totinos pizzas for one pre-baked crust! A full, frozen pizza (of what some might term larger size and better quality than a Totinos) could be purchased for $3.
As I am trying to make frugal purchases, I did not buy a pre-baked crust. I did purchase one refrigerated Pillsbury pizza dough canister, but I’m not looking forward to using it. You have to really stretch out the dough and play with it to get it to a decent size. You end up with a rectangular pizza, and the inside pieces are often floppy. Thus, you then have to cut the dough into four smaller rectangles, but this just adds to the work.
This weekend, I have been filling my freezer with prepped meals. I will look into making some pizza pockets or pre-baking my own pizza crusts. My counter is currently beckoning me to get out my Silpat Mat and work with some dough. We’ll see. I wouldn’t be surprised if I came out of this weekend with kolaches, bagels, and pizza pockets!
