    Default freeze pizza dough


    Big weekend coming up so I won't be able to use up my leftover pizza
    dough within a reasonable amount of time. I killed bread dough the
    one and only time I tried freezing it, but I need to try it again now.
    Does anyone have any suggestions - beginning with how I should wrap it
    up? Thanks!

    --
    I love cooking with wine.
    Sometimes I even put it in the food.

    I don't do anything special to it. I just stick it in a baggie, then
    into the freezer.

    I do find it works better if you let it have at least one rising
    before putting it in the freezer.

    And make sure there's room in the container for expansion for that
    second rising that will start before the yeast chills.

    Really.... how easy was that??

    There used to be a female on another group that used to come up and just
    say "I'm bored, someone talk to me."

    At least she was honest about it.

    Thanks for the speedy answer, Chris! It's been out long enough to
    consider it raised so I'll put it in a baggie and stick it in the
    freezer, thanks a million.

    Punch it down before you put it in the baggie. And have a big enough
    baggie, cause it might rise a bit before it totally freezes.

    Also, when you defrost it and get ready to use it again, let it sit
    for an hour or so after it is defrosted.

    I hope this works for you. Mine has usually done just fine.

    I put it in a one gallon zip lock and it only filled half, so there's
    plenty of room to expand.

    I just put it in an oiled ziplock freezer bag and thaw it out when I
    need it. I usually make a triple or quadruple batch of dough at a time
    and freeze the excess.

    What do you use to make that amount of pizza dough?

    I did that for years with no problems. I used to give it a first rise,
    gently knock it back and wrap it as you suggest. When I wanted to use it, I
    would thaw it out (usually in the fridge) and then allow the second rise.

    I actually keep the empty, oiled bags in our freezer after I empty
    them of the dough, that way I don't have to get a new one out for the
    next batch of dough.

    I use our huge bread machine. I just make sure to pull the dough
    before it rises too far over the top. Quadruple is the largest amount
    it can take.
