Can you Freeze Bread Dough?
Bread dough, like yeast, is freezable. The general rule for frozen bread dough is to add an extra ¼ to 1/3 of the standard yeast amount. This will counter the slowing effect that the cold will have on the yeast’s activity. Dust the dough with flour, place it in a plastic bag, and place the bag in a loaf pan. This will help the dough keep its shape, and once the dough has fully frozen, you can simply remove the pan. You should use the dough within about a month of freezing it to avoid freezer burn and other adverse effects. Thaw the dough the night before using it by removing it from the bag and placing it in a loaf pan. Once it has fully thawed, bake it according to the normal parameters. Some gourmet critics claim that freezing bread dough will have an adverse effect on the resulting bread, but the difference is slight at most. For more information, read our guide to freezing yeast.
