frozen pizza dough
I made twice the amount of dough the last time I made pizza and froze
the leftovers. I let it thaw overnight in the refrigerator and
noticed it was not rising, so I left it there another day. Still
nothing, so I put it out on the counter for a few hours. It
definitely wasn't dead because I saw yeast holes but it didn't have
any significant oomph to it either. I went ahead and made pizza with
it last night and the crust was fantastic! Very crispy. It was easy
to roll & stretch thin and I even got a couple of bubbles on the edge
of the finished pizzas, which is a big plus for me. However, if I had
intended that dough to be bread in the end, the way I'd intended
before, it would have been another colossal failure. Conclusion:
frozen pizza dough is OK - but I will not try freezing bread dough
again because my thawed dough does not rise properly.
Forget the health food. I need all the preservatives I can get.
