What is Fathead Dough
Meal Prep Pizza Burgers for the Week
Our pizza burger recipe makes a great addition to any meal prep plan. Whether you are eating low carb or just simply creating lunches and dinner for the week, meal prep can save time. To meal prep these burgers we recommend storing individually in zip top bag inside of your prep container. This will help to keep the dough from drying out or getting hard on top.
Reheating Pizza Burgers
If reheating your homemade pizza burgers from your meal prep container, we recommend taking it out of the zip top bag first. Place back in container, the cover on, but loose (tipped to the side works). Then, Microwave for 1 minute at a time until desired temperature is reached.
Optional reheating instructions:
- Remove from plastic storage bag, wrap loosely in damp paper towel, place on microwave safe plate. Reheat for 1 minute at a time.
- Place pizza burgers on cookie sheet and bake on 350 for 15 minutes.
How To Keep Pizza Burger Crust Soft When Reheating
We have a few very easy kitchen tested way to keeping the crust soft. Ever notice that reheating pizza in the microwave makes it soggy or chewy? Yet, reheating in the oven can dry it out and make the crust hard.
Microwave- Wrap the burger loosely in Damp Paper Towel OR Place a microwave safe cup of water inside while reheating.
Oven- Water to create steam is keep to softening the pizza crust, or at the least to prevent it from hardening up. Place an oven safe dish on the cookie sheet during the oven preheat time. When the oven is preheated place pizza burgers on the pan, leave the dish and return to the oven.
