The Spanish coca is related to the pizza, so I guess the question can apply for both.

Normally I bake it in about 20 minute, should I take it out after 10 minute or later or sooner?

If I freeze it, can it be popped straight into the oven or should it be thawed first?

Edit: I've posted an answer below. Still wondering if you can take the pizza out of the freezer, put the filling on and pop it straight into the oven...

Can you clarify what you mean by "I bake it in about 20'..."? It sounds like you are talking about time but I am unfamiliar with ' used in the context of time. Are we talking about minutes? Or are we not talking about time at all? –  Jay May 4 '12 at 14:11
    
@Jay My guess would be minutes, as in angle measurement ' is used to mark minutes (1/60 of a degree) –  Yamikuronue May 4 '12 at 14:13
    
@Yamikuronue: Yea that makes sense. Thanks. BaffledCook, I made the edit to the question so there is no confusion. If you did mean something else, I guess edit it farther. –  Jay May 4 '12 at 14:16
    
The ' is used in many contexts to indicate minutes Races are an example. –  clabacchio May 4 '12 at 14:42
    
@Jay, sorry, yes ' stands for minutes. –  BaffledCook May 4 '12 at 15:51

Did this for a lunch-rush special, prebaking individual pizzas (not thin-crust) in a slower oven with steam from a lg pan of water below.

Crusts were not at all brown nor crisp. Mushrooms cheese and other quick-cooking toppings needed no precooking.

A final assembled 5min high-heat crisping up was all that was needed.

I froze extra crusts but thawed them before use so no telling if freezer-to-oven is doable.

Apparently, pizza's can be pre-baked up to 80% of the normal baking time. People recommend:

  • Baking without the filling (as this can make the base soggy).
  • The filling should be pre-baked (otherwise the base will burn when finishing).

I've pre-baked 10 individual coca's and they're frozen. I'll report back how they turn out of the oven.

Edit: I did two straight out of the freezer, fresh ingredients. It worked pretty well, but not perfect (a little bit soggy). I'm guessing this was because the coca's were only 50% pre-baked.
