How To Freeze Dominos Pizza
Freezing pizza can be done but it does need to be done carefully to ensure you get the best results. Your pizza probably won’t taste quite as good as it did when it was freshly cooked and delivered to your door but it will still be tasty.
When it comes to freezing you need some good quality cling film and some freezer bags or large airtight boxes.
You can either freeze your leftover pizza whole or in individual slices. This will depend on how you plan to eat the pizza. If you want to reheat a whole pizza as a meal then choose this option but if you are more likely to eat only a slice or two at a time then it is worth taking the time to freeze leftover pizza in individual slices.
- Make sure you have space in your freezer for the pizza. Your pizza will take up quite a bit of space as it needs to be frozen flat.
- Make sure the pizza has cooled completely before freezing. This might take several hours.
- Choose how you want to freeze the pizza, in slices or as a whole. If you are freezing whole then wrap the entire pizza in several layers of clingfilm to protect it from the air.
- If you are freezing in individual slices then you need to wrap each slice in several layers of cling film. You need to make sure each slice is airtight.
- Pop the slices into a freezer bag or put the whole pizza into a large box or container that is safe to put in the freezer.
- Label the contents with the date and pop it into the freezer. Keep the pizza flat and upright while it is freezing or you might end up with a mess of crumpled pizza!
