I always grab mozzarella cheese that’s on sale since cheese pizzas are my favorite to eat. In true lazy cook fashion, I bought a pack of ready made pizza crust making this Ricotta Mozzarella Tomato Pizza an easy recipe to make. You can freeze the 2nd pizza and heat it up in the oven after a few days. It will be as good as ever.
To freeze: Wait for the pizza to cool and wrap it saran wrap to freeze. Cut the pizza in half if your freezer is small (like ours).
