View Full Version : Pizza base
03-18-2008, 08:42 PM
Currently I buy TJ's pizza dough for our pizzas. I would love to buy something already made. But Bobbli brand has more fat per slice than I like - DH has choloesterol issues. In Australia at the supermarket bakery section you can buy pizza bases - just put the sauce on and toppings on. Anything like this? Or are my options TJ's dough, make my own dough (how?), Bobbli or pita bread?

My Whole Foods sells crusts in the bakery section near the pre-packaged bread. I haven't looked at them to know what kind of nutritional value they have, but I would think it would have to be better than Boboli!

We use Kangaroo's Wheat Pita Pockets, but we don't cut them to use the pocket. They end up being mini-pizzas. I think they taste good. Here's the link if you want to check out nutritional info: http://www.kangaroobrands.com/products.htm
My husband has also been using flatbread. I forget which brand. Plus, we sometimes just use a roll of store brand refrigerated dough.
Here's the Tightwad Gazette's pizza dough recipe:

You can also make your own dough, flatten it, bake it and then freeze it to use later for pizza. It is super cheap and you control the fat content entirely.

Thank you everyone. For now, I'll investigate our whole foods and some other bread options. I would like to try making the dough - but that will have to wait for a little bit. And I like the idea of baking and freezing the bases - i could make small individual sizes.
