Yes, you can freeze the dough. After it rises the first time form it into the loaf and wrap it in saran wrap and freeze. After it is solid, wrap it again in foil and label it. I take mine out of the freezer at night before bed and let it defrost in the refrigerator. Then I put it on the counter in the morning to warm up and rise. It will take a while because the dough will not rise when it is cold. Once it has risen, bake it as usual. I have been making dough and freezing it for years and it always comes out just fine. You can also freeze baked bread, but it takes up more room and can only be frozen for about 1 month.
