    Is it possible to make pizza dough ahead of time?

    There are many methods for creating pizza dough ahead of time.

    Option 1: Knead the dough until it reaches the first rise. Put the dough in an airtight container in the refrigerator to rise overnight or for several hours before rolling out and prebaking.

    Option 2: Fully prepare the pizza dough, including a 6-minute pre-bake in the oven. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for several hours, or until ready to bake your pizza.

    Option three is to freeze the pizza dough.

    Shape the dough into a ball and gently spray it on both sides. Wrap it in plastic wrap and freeze it in a ziplock freezer bag for up to 3 months. Place the frozen pizza dough in the refrigerator overnight to defrost and rise. When you’re ready to bake, roll it out.

    You may also prepare the pizza dough ahead of time and freeze it before adding sauce and toppings. Just allow the crust to cool fully before wrapping it in plastic wrap and tinfoil and storing it in the freezer.
