Pizza dough balls

edited 5:37AM in EggHead Forum
Not to mention any names don’t know if appropriate, but a large bulk member store based out of Arkansas sells pizza dough balls by the case. They sell them out of the section where they bake pizzas, $17.00 per case (20). Has anyone bought these or used these? The girl baking the pizzas said they thaw them, cover in extra virgin olive oil, roll, and let stand 2 hours and then bake them at 517 in their oven for 6 and half minutes.

    I have seen them at our local place like that.I've been tempted to try a case but have not so far.I think I'll give em a try.I did try a piece of their pizza,fresh outta the oven to test it.The crust was good but I did'nt care for the sauce.

    It could VERY WELL happen. :( This darn za has been my nemis!

    I thought the dough could be slightly modified with a few spices and herbs and cooked on at 650 for about 6-10 minutes. Might be a quick easy start for homemade pizza.

    I think you're right. :)

    I'll let you know. My wife wants pizza Saturday so I think I'll buy a case and bake a couple.

    Whole lot cheaper and more fulfilling to make your own and freeze them. They taste a lot better too.

  • Do you freeze them before or after they rise?

    What is your recipe and process for your dough. Homemade pizza and on the egg is new to me so I kind of wanted to start off easy. I baked a premade pizza from this store a couple weeks ago and turned out pretty good. Obviously could be much better.

    How long can the dough stay frozen but still maintain good flavor/texture, etc.?

    If you don't want to make your own try finding a local pizza shop where you like their crust...most will sell you a couple of dough balls at a relatively low price...especially if they know you are coming.

    When I worked at a shop we would only freeze dough when necessary and only for a few days at a time...someone with more experience will chime in I'm sure....but I would think a couple of months would be reasonable....just watch the moisture content

    But why freeze? It only takes pizza dough an hour or two to rise. Going to take that long, if not longer to defrost.

    so you can make a large batch of dough at one time.

    I let pizza dough balls ferment in the fridge and rise over a 4 day period or longer. The deeper flavors that are developed a re well worth the effort.
  • FidelFidel Posts: 10,172
    Rub the exterior of the ball with a good coating of olive oil and you should be able to keep it six months or longer. Probably much longer but I've never gone longer than that.

    I have several recipes on the forum and in the recipe section. I mix it up all the time, don't really have one that I use regularly.
