good source for bread or pizza dough

I need to make a large quantity of something and won't have time to make all the dough from scratch.

Anyone know of a bakery or store that has decent ready made dough? I have tried asking bakeries but they don't seem to want to sell it.

    1. If you are in the west end the Monastery Bakery in Oakville sells great pizza dough. It is my go to place when I don't feel like making it myself.

        Sorry, I should have specified downtown Toronto, I don't have a car. Thanks.

      2. Brick Street Bakery in L'Ville has great pizza dough. I cook my pies outside on a 650f Broil King and I get a beautiful pie with a crisp crust...not burnt on the bottom. Many pre-made doughs use too much sugar to proof the yeast, but this dough is seamless.

            Yes your pizza cooking system is the tastiest, fastest, etc., taking into regard the dough must sit on a pizza stone or utensil. Unfortunately, I find it easiest to seek out Italian bakeries within fairly local area or a neighbouring town to buy pizza dough, stills works well on the Barbie!

          3. My Market Bakery on Baldwin sells pizza dough, regular and whole wheat.

            1. I have gotten some wonderful pizza dough (for very, very cheap) from Riveria bakery on College, between Manning and Clinton. A friend of mine told me that a fancy Yorkville restaurant buys their dough. Don't know if it's true, but it tastes really good, so that's all that matters!
