With ShopRite pizza dough, you can now make your own pizza at home without having to make everything from scratch. ShopRite is a food retailer where you can purchase various types of frozen pizza crust, from thin to thick crust. This pizza dough is also perfect for keeping your toddler’s hands busy and their belly full.
Also, keep in mind that you should keep the frozen dough in the fridge for up to a week or longer, depending on the date it was made. So while you’re at the store, grab a couple of balls so you’ll have some ready-to-use pizza dough for a fast dinner. Below is the ShopRite pizza dough cooking directions you can follow:
- First and foremost, take the dough out of the fridge and let it sit for 30 minutes at room temperature. Once it warms up, you can roll it out easily. If you buy the thin crust, unroll the dough and press it out to 10 x 15 inches on a rectangle baking sheet. Make sure you have greased the pan using cooking spray, shortening, or butter. But if you have a thick crust, press it out into a pizza pan with a diameter of 12 inches or 9 inches x 13 inches. Take your time rolling out the dough as thinly as you can without cracking it.
- You can make your preferred pizza sauce for this ShopRite pizza dough. But keep in mind much sauce will instead make it difficult for the bottom crust to be crisp. Half to one cup of pizza sauce is enough for either thick or thin crust. Once you are done, top it with your favorite toppings. You can top it with cheese, cooked meat, or other kinds of toppings. If you like crispy crust, preheat the oven up to 400°F and place the pan on the center rack of the oven with baking time between 20 to 23 minutes.
- If you prefer a softer crust, preheat the oven up to 400°F and place the pan on the bottom rack of the oven with baking time between 24 to 27 minutes. Add 2 to 4 minutes if you add any additional toppings. You can take the pizza out of the oven if the edges turn golden brown and the cheese is perfectly melted. Important to note that since the oven temperatures are varied, you can adjust the temperature and baking time of the ShopRite pizza dough as needed.
