update on freezer pizza dough

Several of you requested I tell how the freezer pizza dough works out.
We had it for supper tonight. Jeff, Jimmy and Gavin all liked it. I liked how easy it was. It makes a crust that is a little chewy and crispy on the bottom.
I just used my basic pizza dough recipe - 2 cups water, 1 t salt and sugar, 1 T oil, 2 t yeast and about 6 cups of flour. I think any yeast pizza crust recipe would work.
I divided it into 3 crusts but I think it would do 4 if you like really thin crust.
I do think oiling the balls before putting them in storage bags is important as I think they would really stick while rising if not oiled.

The crust was a success and I will be making more batches of this freezer crust.

Sorry no pizza pictures - it was a little hectic here as the pizzas came out of the oven. Gavin was hungry, Jimmy just got home from work and Jeff was finishing up with the roofing contractor who will be doing our new roof tomorrow.

  2. Hi Rhonda, I've frozen pizza dough and regular bread dough in the past. It worked out pretty good for me too. You've made me want to do that again. What kind of toppings did you use? Did you make your own pizza sauce?

  7. Good. I'm wondering how to cut down on the amount of cheese and still get that gooeyness and flavour. Adding more veggies helps and sprinkling the pie with parmesean cheese adds something too.

  8. Hi Rhonda, I'm not much of a pizza person. But given the cost of pizza and the fact that the mood for it strikes at the weirdest hours, I thought it would be good to make some of the dough and freeze it. That way it will be on hand when needed. Thanks again!
