We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

making/freezing pizza dough

I've been seeing the posts on pizza dough recipes and decided to order tipo 00 flour. I got the flour last week. My question is can you freeze leftover dough, and if so, is it as good as fresh? I am thinking about making some to freeze for future use. Can the dough be made in a bread maker with good results?

    Most reports say that you can freeze without any negative results. My recipe just makes enough for one crust, so I can't tell you from personal experience, even thought that is the flour that I use.
  • We freeze ours just find for about a month in ziplock freezer bags. Freeze the dough ball alone first to prevent sticking then remove from ziploc when ready for use & just defrost in a deep bowl coated with olive oil, cover with plastic and go into a rise from there. We take it out in the morning and then it's ready by dinner.

     @BeecaveKitchen Neat tip. Thanks. I always oiled the dough well before the freezer bag. But I will try you method next time.
    @krobertsmsn  I usually double the recipe and freeze what we don't need after the dough has risen. It takes very little time to defrost, and doesn't impact flavor by much.
