Trader's pre-made pizza dough? Any other options for pre-made dough in SFV?

I hear they offer a variety of doughballs to bake at home. How is it? Is the whole wheat any good?

Do other places offer something similar?

  1. Some people like Trader Joe's, it never seems to work for me. Try Monte Carlo market in Burbank.

      Second the Monte Carlo. Their pizza dough is fantastic, much better than Trader Joe's

        Third Monte Carlo. It's also $1.49, which is much less than I've seen it at Trader Joe's.

          Not sure what you were looking at at TJ's, but their pizza dough ball is $0.99 per 1 lb bag, quite a fair price.

          That being said, italian specialty markets and your favorite local pizzeria are hte first two places to check out.

    2. If that doesn't work, call your local pizza parlor and ask (obviously a pizza parlor which makes a crust you actually like).

      1. we really like it -- especially the herbed dough (white flour) -- mush easier when you need to make a quick dinner!

        1. I really like the Trader Joe's pizza dough. It's easy to handle (let it sit out for about 20 minutes and come to room temp) and tastes great.

          Results here at Tuna Toast:

          1. i've used it quite a few times. it's not great, but it beats the heck out of boboli, my last emergency pizza crust (boy, that was a long time ago). does anyone know who makes it? oftentimes, the tj brand is overrun from a well-known producer. i remember years ago seeing the tj truck pull up behind diamond bakery and start loading corn rye loaves.
