Can you freeze pizza dough for later? 

  • You can freeze pizza dough. Let it rise and then divide it up into the number of crusts the recipe calls for. When you are ready to use your crust, let the dough thaw in the refrigerator (overnight is best). Allow the pizza to come to room temperature before rolling out.

Why do you cover the dough to rise? 

  • Covering the dough prevents it from drying out

Can I let the dough rise in the oven? 

  • To rise dough in an oven, first place the oven on the lowest setting to warm up for only a few minutes. Turn the oven off. Place the dough in the center of the oven to rise
