How to bake bread dough

Dear Baker:
Can I make bread dough ahead of time and bake it as needed? --iVillager Evans_Meredith2


Dear Evans_Meredith2:
Absolutely. Bread dough freezes really well, though freezing tends to lessen the effects of yeast. Freeze the dough after shaping and before the next rise. To thaw, leave the dough in a warm place to defrost and double in size.
