All week long I am sharing my favorite freezer meal recipes with you. These are all of my family’s favorites and none of the bleh recipes we’ve tried in the past. These are the ones that passed the test and get made over and over again. This is a favorite because who doesn’t love pizza? It’s quick and easy to make up a batch of them and freeze them. Then just pull one out the night before you want to eat it.
- 1 loaf Rhodes frozen bread dough
- 1/4 C tomato paste
- 1 tsp crushed oregano
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1 C Chopped pepperoni
- 1 C Shredded mozzarella cheese
- *For a ham & cheese braid variation use the following ingredients INSTEAD of the ingredients listed above which are for the pepperoni version
- 1 stick butter
- 1/2 envelope of hidden valley ranch dry dressing mix
- 3/4 lb thinly sliced ham
- 1 1/2 C shredded cheddar cheese
- Combine melted butter and ranch mix together to create a spread and use that instead of tomato paste. Top with your ham and cheese. Follow full directions below 🙂
- Let bread dough thaw overnight in fridge or follow package directions for thawing.
- Roll bread dough into rectangle shape so it is 1/2'' thick.
- Spread tomato paste on center leaving edges clean.
- Top with herbs, pepperoni and cheese.
- Use pizza cutter to cut even number of strips down each side.
- Start at the bottom and take each piece and cross them, braiding until you reach the end. Cross and twist to seal the end.
- Wrap with plastic wrap and then foil.
- Cooking Day:
- Thaw overnight in fridge. Place on lightly greased baking sheet and cover with greased plastic wrap.
- A couple hours before baking let rise on counter until double in size.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minuntes.
This can be done with any variation of ingredients! The frozen bread dough comes in bags with 5 loaves so I generally make 5 at a time and put them in the freezer. I’ve done it with chicken and bacon and dry ranch dressing with a white sauce as well as ham & cheese and they all are wonderful!
