Basic Freezer Pizza Dough
Simple and quick, this dough is great to keep in your freezer for when you're in a pinch!
- 3 ¼-¾ c. flour
- 2 ¼ tsp. RapidRise Yeast (or 1 envelope Fleischmann's RapidRise)
- 1 ½ tsp. sugar
- 1 ½ tsp. salt
- 1 ⅓ c. water very warm (120-130°)
- ¼ c. corn oil
Begin by combining 2 cups of flour with undissolved yeast, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Then add the warm water and oil and mix until well blended using the paddle attachment on your mixer.
When the dough is mixed, begin adding in remaining flour until the dough is soft and doesn't stick to your fingers when pressed. Remove the dough from the bowl and knead on a floured surfaced for about 4 minutes. Alternatively, you can use the dough hook on your mixer.
When the dough has been kneaded, divide in half and place on a sheet of plastic wrap that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Then place the wrapped dough into a freezer bag and freeze for up to 4 weeks.
To thaw, simply place dough in the fridge overnight (8-16 hours) or thaw at room temperature for 3-4 hours. Then give a gentle knead and use as desired!
