Can pizza dough be made ahead of time? If so, how should it be stored?

I use Astoria Mills pizza dough mix. I routinely make a double batch and keep half in the fridge for a day or two. It is at least as good if not better on the second day. I think they even claim that it can be frozen, though I have never tried it.

Do you keep it in a ball after it rises and then store it?

Sorry I'm late to answer. Didn't have my notifications set.

Yes, I just keep it in a ball and refrigerate it. It needs to come to room temperature before you use it. That's not such a big deal unless you are in a hurry: just flatten it partly and then let it warm before really forming it.

Also, did I say "double batch"?! I meant that I make a half batch and then save half of that. My wife and I cannot eat huge quantities of pizza, even if it is gluten free. Here's how I make the pizza:

I bought an 11" square cast iron griddle without a handle that just fits into my toaster oven. I get it warming up at 425 and then make the pizza. I mash the dough out on a floured (yes gluten-free flour) board, drizzle on some olive oil to give it that nice Italian flavor, then put some sliced onions, tomatoes and tasty cheese (not mozzarella) on it. Some cooked bacon or other smoked meat gives it a wood-fired flavor. Then I grease the griddle with some coconut oil (best vegetable oil to use on cast iron that I have found) and slide the pizza onto it. It cooks hot and fast and tastes great. Top with some fresh basil and grated parmesan if you have it.

Have you tried to par cook the crust and then wrap and freeze it?

I have worked on a few recipes that actually improved in texture after freezing.

This is my preferred way of making it, too. So convenient for those days you've just got to have pizza STAT!

What does it mean to "par cook" it?

Since love2travel is offline, parboil is equivalent to blanching, enough cook to stop the spoiling process, but not the whole way, and par bake is cook halfway, so it is no longer raw and subject to rising, but still needs to go back in the oven for the finishing bake. Like the semi-baked rolls you can find in the supermarket that you pop in the oven for the final 5-10 mins.

Oh, I see. Thank you. I'm an old guy, so I guess I'm not in such a hurry. The term "pop" is not part of my regular working vocabulary. I mix enough for two pizzas and just save half in the fridge for the next day or two.

    • It sure is, it really is. 
    • shellyb, I have info. for you & you may yet be able to get an official dx from your dermatologist as she sounds like she would be willing to learn. If you are dx'd with dh it is definitive & no other testing is needed. You don't need to see a GI. Im in FL & have had a long day watching Tropical Storm Hermine & making preparations for it's track which is over where I live. I'm tired! I will have links for you to reputable medical info. on the rash but it make take me till tomorrow or even longer if we lose power.  I'll be back as soon as I can. Question: You're on Dapsone now? How long have you been on it? How is it working for you? Are you getting the proper testing at regular intervals to make sure it isn't doing bad things to you? Were you gluten free before the skin biopsy?
    • Thank you so much for your quick response, GFinDC. While I wouldn't be completely opposed to another skin biopsy, I already had 4 done (3 were done prior to my dermatologist suspecting DH) so I don't love the idea of  yet another hole and scar on my body. Plus, fortunately I don't have any fresh lesions now, which I believe is needed for the biopsy. I wish I would have known to see a GI before going gluten free but I was so desperate to get any relief that I started that and Dapsone as soon as my doctor mentioned it to me.  My rash is definitely symmetrical and I have it in all of the "classic" DH spots although it basically spread over my entire body. As much as I'd like a more formal diagnosis, I really don't think I can go through all of that again. It was so bad that not only was I getting no sleep but I had to change my sheets every morning because there was blood all over them. Sorry, TMI. The worst part is that this all developed during my ninth month of pregnancy and got much worse after I delivered my baby. So not only was I dealing with this insanely itchy rash but I had a newborn and a toddler to take care of.  My daughters' pediatrician did mention doing DNA testing on me first and then my daughters to see if there's any concern that they may be susceptible. I may just go that route for now. I was just curious if others have had similar test results to mine and how did their doctors treat it? Thanks again!
    • Hey guys, the last year and a month of transitioning to totally gluten free was hard, but I now seem to be healthy. The first six months I got horrible cramps that would suddenly come and hit hard, but I really havent seen any of those since about February-March. One thing that I wouldnt say has gotten better is my psyche. I was always sort of an anxious person (hard not to be when you dont feel well yet you have "IBS" and you're just "nervous", which all of you probably know), but I am borderline hermit now. I finally went to the doctor today and was prescribed prozac, so hopefully that helps, but I was just wondering about you guys? Thanks  
    • Thank-you, thank-you! I am so relieved to have input from others who have experience with celiac disease. I'm not sure what I'm going to do about the school cafeteria. I'll ask our very nice and experienced Cafe Mgr for realistic info and details. My primary concern is the safety of my daughter and packing a lunch will not be that big a deal, even though she prefers the fresh prep instead of lunchbox offerings. Sigh. It sounds as if the 504 is unquestionably the preference over the IHCP, since the 504 is binding and follows the student through his/her academic career. I have a meeting with the admin team on Tuesday. Until then, I'm reading lots so i can be informed. And, dkader, I sent you a private message via the blog's feature. I'd certainly love to read the 504 info you have squirreled away. Thank-you so much!
