Freezing Dough….

Freezing Dough….

Hello again everyone! A post a few days ago led to discussion in the comments involving homemade bread, and reminded me of something. I've been looking for some info, and haven't been able to come up with it. I love baking, and would love to do some things like switch to homemade bread and other baked goods based on yeast doughs. Due to work schedules and such, I can't really afford the time to spend a day each week doing all the baking for the week to come. However, I can easily take a day every few weeks or so for prepping things, like making dough to freeze. We've made bread and frozen the loaves before, and while thats good, we'd like to be able to have a fresh baked loaf a little more often. I've seen frozen pizza dough, and frozen bread dough in the stores, so I know freezing a yeast dough for later use is possible. My question is, how does one go about making and freezing their own pizza and bread doughs? At what stage in the process of bread making do you freeze the dough? And once you have frozen dough, how do you thaw it, and what changes are there to any remaining rise time and steps before making it into bread? Also, about how long can the dough remain in the freezer? Thanks in advance!
