My kids love making pizza! This bread dough pizza base is very economical so you could make some bases in bulk and freeze uncooked, even topped if you want, to defrost and bake when needed. The tomato base sauce will freeze well too, use a jar of pasta sauce or store bought bases if you want to make this easier.
