Making Pizza With Whole Wheat Boboli Crusts

Updated on January 20, 2008

I love homemade pizza, but I really don't like to make dough. When I was a teenager, I made mini pizzas on English muffins all the time. As a matter of fact, English muffin pizzas were one of my favorite late night snacks in high school. Many years later, I've outgrown the concept of making tiny pizzas on English muffins, but I still like the ideas of making pizzas at home without having to go through the process of making crusts.

I'm also a fan of whole wheat pizza crusts, which can sometimes be difficult to find. A few years ago, I bought a whole wheat Boboli crust that I really liked, but could never find another one in the supermarket. That is, until earlier this month. I happened to check out the Boboli rack in my favorite supermarket a few weeks ago, and was thrilled to find my favorite whole wheat crusts in stock once again.

I bought several of them, out of fear that it would be another couple of years before they showed up in the store again. I've been back a few times since my purchase, and there have been whole wheat Boboli crusts on display ever time. I'm optimistic that this means they are here to stay!

Preparing Pizza With a Boboli Crust

There is really nothing more simple than creating an easy homemade pizza with a pre-made crust. Start out by removing the crust from its package, and placing it on a cookie sheet or pizza stone. Preheat your oven according to the package directions (450 degrees for Boboli), and add the toppings of your choice. If you keep marinara sauce in your pantry or fridge, these types of pizzas can actually be a great way to use up small quantities of leftovers.

For example, I used my first whole wheat Boboli crust, I made a bacon cheeseburger pizza with ingredients I already had in my refrigerator. I simply covered the crust with canned marinara sauce, sprinkled leftover crumbled ground beef over the sauce, added a few Hormel Real Bacon crumbles, and covered with shredded cheddar cheese. After ten minutes in the oven, I had a delicious fresh pizza meal that took almost no time to prepare.

You can use this simple technique to create any flavor pizza you choose. For example, you can substitute cooked sausage, pepperoni, or Canadian ham for the ground beef to enjoy a more traditional pizza. You can also use mozzarella cheese instead of some or all of the cheddar cheese. If you don't want to use marinara sauce, you can use a canned Alfredo sauce. This would be delicious as the base for a pizza covered with leftover spinach and piece of roasted chicken.

Basically, when you start with a pre-made crust, you can make any type of pizza you want with very little effort and planning! Do you have any great pizza ideas of your own? Feel free to post them in the comments section below.
