I’ve been constantly passing by these bags of pizza dough in the produce section in Trader Joe’s. I finally decided to purchase it and try it out since it was just $1.29.
The directions were very simple: Remove from bag, let the dough rest on a lightly floured surface for about 20 minutes, and roll or stretch to desired size.
I just took out my 9x13 inch pan and stretched it into the shape of the pan. Then I added whatever I could find in my fridge. I added canned tomatoes, spinach, cheese, ham, and meatballs. Then all I had to do was toss it in the oven for 8-10 minutes and it was done! It was much more easier than I thought it was going to be. I will for sure get another bag the next time I go.
The pizza dough simply tasted just like your basic pizza dough. I couldn’t really get the garlic and herb vibe, but whatever, I was still satisfied. The pizza came out a little dry and didn’t seem to have the right kick to it. So to fully complete the pizza after it came out of the oven, I added some tomato basil sauce, fresh herbs, and some hot sauce. The pizza was perfect. I loved it. Another great alternative to a quick meal especially since I stored the leftovers in the fridge which was good for another two to three meals.
Making a pizza is also a great way to use up any ingredients that are about to expire. I find myself at that point many times and I can just toss everything onto the pizza. I also realized that it would be a great party idea. A pizza bar, where you give everyone a piece of the dough for a personal pizza that they can stretch to any shape they want. Then just have the ingredients all out and they can make their own pizza. Then throw them all in the oven for baking!
I apologize that these photos aren’t as flattering. I just picked my camera up for a few quick shots.
