Can I freeze store bought pizza dough?

I know I have bought pizza dough in the past, which says on the package that is was previously frozen, and not to re-freeze. I recently have been buying from a new store that opened by me (Top Tomato~Freehold NJ) and I have no idea if it will work.

I suppose I could try, it only cost .99cents...just thought I could get some ideas here.

  1. As long as it hasn't been previously frozen you certainly can freeze it.

    1. You can always ask someone at the bakery counter if you could purchase a frozen ball of pizza dough. That is usually the way they get it and then they put it out for sale and it defrosts. I usually dig around and find a ball that hasn't thawed all the way or else I ask for a frozen ball if I am not using it that day or the next day.

      1. You can refreeze it - it just may not raise at high as it would have normally (typically not a huge issue for pizza dough).
