Brush Garlic Butter On Frozen Pizza Crust And You'll Never Look Back

We're all entitled to lazy days. Having pizza in the freezer can be a lifesaver on those nights we don't have time to put dinner together. It's also great to have on game day as a crowd-pleaser when you want no-fuss pre-game snacks. But let's be real, there's always something left to be desired in frozen pizza. It's usually missing a je ne sais quoi, a gourmet feeling. The crust, especially, can be flavorless in these packaged goods.


Lucky for us, two ingredients in the food world are known to rescue even the blandest of dishes: garlic and butter. From garlic butter breadsticks or buttery garlic mashed potatoes to hearty garlic butter pasta, the combo is irresistible. We're putting the tried and tested duo on frozen pizza crust to add some oomph back into the pie. Trust us, when you try this DIY upgrade, you won't ever bake your pizza without it again.

Everything's better with butter

It's easy to follow a garlic butter recipe at home. With a few simple steps, you can make a whole stick's worth and store it in the refrigerator. For frozen pizza, take the pie out of the box and preheat your oven to the box instructions. While you wait, microwave a knob of garlic butter until it's melted. Brush the garlic butter on the pizza crust before and after you bake it for an incredible flavor boost. It's like a pizza and garlic breadsticks combo. The combination is so tasty that pizza chains like Domino's, Pizza Hut, and Papa John's have been using this trick on some of their signature pizzas for years.


But why stop with garlic butter? You can add even more toppings to your frozen pizza including onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, and more cheese. The toppings will cook as the pizza heats in the oven. For more seasoning, you can also add a sprinkling of garlic powder to the pie, red chili pepper flakes for heat, and dried herbs like oregano for extra flavor. For another variation, the results of preparing this chili oil recipe could spice things up.

Take that, frozen pizza. We like lazy days. We like bougie garlic butter on pizza crust lazy days even better, though.
