Not sure where to post this...
 
I have a question about dough. I was wondering what the general opinions were on freezing pizza dough. I like the idea of using good flour and good ingredients, but sometimes I would like to make a large amount of dough and use it over a longer period of time. If I made the dough to the point of mixing it, weighed it into balls and then froze the balls, would there be any adverse affects on the product?

I just went through this...short answer it works really well. I made my usual high hydration pizza dough recipe on Saturday night, planning a pizza party for Sunday afternoon, I loaded the doughballs individually bagged into the fridge for overnight retardation. In the morning, I work up with a terrible cold, cancelled the party and put the dough balls in the deep freeze. Two weeks later I put the dough balls back in the fridge on Friday afternoon for a Saturday afternoon pizza party. I really could not tell any difference from the usual...

Drake,

Good call on this. It does work, but it's a good idea not to leave them in there for months. A few days to a week works just fine. Might be as wise with high hydration doughs to mist the insides of the bags with spray oil before putting them away.

Yep, bags were misted with oil...
