Parbaking pizza.

I love every issue of your magazine, but I especially loved the March/April issue. I am very interested in syrup production, and the recipes were wonderful. I can't wait to try the pizza recipes.

Recently, we had a new baby. To prepare, I froze many meals to eat during the hectic postpartum period. One thing I learned is to parbake a pizza before freezing, so the dough will have a chance to rise. To do this, prepare your crust and bake at 400 degrees for 5 to 10 minutes (exact time will depend on the particular crust recipe--it should be 80 percent of the total bake time). Then prepare the sauce and toppings as you would normally, wrap in plastic wrap, and freeze. To bake the pizza, simply put it in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the crust is brown and the cheese is melted.

Sometimes even preparing a pizza is more than you have time for, and it's so nice to have a homemade meal on hand to simply throw in the oven!
