Ready-made pizza dough ?

We buy frozen pizza dough balls from the freezer case at Famous Foods. But sometimes I'd like to pick up a fresh un-frozen ball to make pizza when spontaneity hits. Any place within CoV city limits that sell them ?

      No, never even occurred to me ......

          The one at Cambie & West 8th has fresh ones by the pizza by the slice area.

      1. i realize you are looking for "fresh" - but the one frozen one i've had good luck w/ (summer party, make pizzas with chefs of all ages etc) is from Armstrong BC

        i found it in the IGA Marketplace

          Good to know, GS. Again, like Whole Foods suggested by GeekMom above, I never bothered to ask. I tend to not bother much with IGA's freezer cases hence I prolly easily missed KTB's dough, so thanks for providing an extra (and nearby) source for me.

          But yeah, I'm looking for unfrozen-in-bag dough ready for rolling & baking. New Town Bakery up the street here (Cambie) used to have them, $2/bag. Owner lady says she no longer prepares them, as hardly anyone bought it.

        2. I used to buy some from Calabria Bakery on Victoria Drive.

              Calabria on Commercial has it..haven't tried it though.. Worth it? I'm interested in the best dough available so keep em coming.

                Just bought some Calabria brand at Ugo and Joes. Got home and read there is vegetable oil shortening in it, which is translation for hydrogenated oil/trans fat..I'll be returning it.

            2. Duso's on Granville Island carries it.

              1. Try calling Gourmet Warehouse. I know they have it frozen, perhaps they also sell it fresh?
