Homemade Personal Pizza

Do I share too many pizza recipes? The correct answer is NO but I feel like between my How to Make Grilled Pizza and Supreme Pizza Chicken Bake that have been published lately maybe a third new pizza recipe is going overboard. But what the heck everyone wants an incredibly easy weeknight pizza recipe right!?

These Weeknight Individual Pizzas are a breeze to make thanks to Rhodes Bread Frozen Dinner Rolls. Turns out that frozen dough makes the best crust for a personal pizza recipe

First thing first I think that probably everybody should always keep a bag of Rhodes Bread frozen dinner  rolls in their freezer. Not only are they affordable, keep well, and taste amazing you can use them for endless possibilities. One of these possibilities being an amazing Personal Pizza Recipe. 

So these pizzas are so easy to make they only take 4 ingredients and can be on the table in 20 minutes. The hardest part of this recipe is making sure that your dough has enough time to thaw out, luckily it is easy enough to do, it is the remembering that might be the problem 😉

So lets see how easy these are to make and then don’t forget to enter the #back2school giveaway below the recipe!

Recipe for Personal Pizza

First off the frozen dough must be thawed for pizzas to be made. Remove 8 rolls from the freezer and place on a plate, cover with plastic wrap. At room temperture let rolls thaw at least 3 hours OR in the fridge let rolls thaw 8-10 hours (aka take out in the morning and leave in the fridge). If thawing in the fridge they will work best if you give them 30 minutes to an hour before using to sit on the counter and come to room temperature but it isn’t necessary.

The other ingredients you will need are pizza sauce, like my 5 Minute Pizza Sauce. Sliced provolone or mozzarella cheese, and pepperoni! Simple right!?

Once your dough is ready preheat oven to 400º F. Lightly grease a sheet pan with spray oil.

Gently take 2 of the thawed slightly risen rolls and work together into a pizza crust, stretching out carefully with your hands to make a crust about 4-5 inches in diameter. Place on greased sheet pan. Continue the process until all 4 crusts are made and placed on the sheet pan.

Divide sauce over crust and spread out evenly. Top with a slice of cheese on each pizza followed by your pepperoni.

Transfer sheet pan to oven and let it cook 11-13 minutes until dough is slightly golden and cheese is bubbly. Let rest slightly before serving.
