Store-Bought Pizza Dough [Moved from Home Cooking]

I would like to start making my own pizza dough but I have had success buying frozen store-bought versions that usually come out well.

I was wondering if any brands/stores would be recommended by fellow hounds that I may not have tried, especially other flavorings?

My favorite so far is the wheat pizza dough from wegmans, very fluffy and perfect for very heavy and hearty homemade sauces.

Thanks and happy hounding.

  1. When I don't have time to make it, I buy a round of dough from my favorite pizzeria. They are happy to sell it to you.

    1. I've never tried store bought dough,but what we do is buy a dough from a neighborhood pizzeria that we like and use that. My problem is that I don't know far enough in advance that we're going to want pizza,so I can't make my own dough.

        When I make pizza dough for a planned pizza dinner, I generally double the recipe and pat the dough into small disks--enough for a pie small enough for 2--and freeze it in plastic bags. It holds up well, defrosts in a couple of hours, and makes a decent pie.

      2. If you live near a Trader Joes, they carry a fresh pizza dough in the cheese section. I like it fine but have never used any other brands so I can't offer any comparisons.

          Trader Joe's also has a whole wheat pizza dough that I think is fantastic.
