How to Freeze Pizza Dough – Tutorial
Make a batch of the pizza dough. Punch it down,
Form the dough into individual balls, the size you would use to make one pizza. Lightly oil each dough ball all over.
Slide the dough ball into a freezer bag (zip lock bag) and seal, squeezing out all the air.
Freeze it in freezer upto 3 months. When you want to use, let it thaw in refrigerator for 4-5 hours and then let it rise again in a warm spot for 1-2 hours. Once it has again doubled up in volume, you can stretch it and use it as required.
