Tuesday Tip: Freezing pizza dough

Remember it’s pizza month!  Sunday I posted my very favorite dough recipe that we always use for pizza night.  Today I’m passing on the tip of freezing pizza dough.

Perhaps you don’t have the extra 10 minutes in a day to make your own dough.  This is okay!  There is still a way you can have fresh homemade pizza dough ready when you are, all you have to do is freeze it!

There has to be a day when you have some extra time.  Perhaps it is during the weekend?  Maybe it’s Sunday evening when you are prepping everything for the upcoming week.  Use this time to make some dough!

Once the dough is made, wrap in plastic wrap and place in a freezer bag.  Then just toss in your freezer.  This way it is ready and waiting for you when you need it.

The day you want to make pizza, pull out the dough, unwrap and stick in an olive oil coated bowl.  Let it thaw and it will rise as it thaws.  When you are ready to make pizza, roll out the dough and get to it!

The dough will take a few hours to thaw.  You can also pull it out first thing in the morning before heading to work.  Do the same as above but stick the dough in the fridge.

Easy peasy homemade pizza dough ready when you are!

Making food at home doesn’t have to be a daunting task, nor does it have to take you hours to create.  Planning and multitasking can acheive just about anything!  Now really, by this point you just have no excuse not to make your own dough. ;)

  1. We have been wanting to freeze our dough to save time! So you don’t let it rise at all, you just throw it right in after you make it?
