Freezing Home Made Bread Dough?

Can you freeze home made bread dough to bake later?

Does it depend on the type of yeast you use?

When do you freeze it, just after mixing, or after it's risen the first time or what?

(Kinda debating making up a big batch of dough, but I don't want to bake it all at once, because it won't get eaten that fast.)

  • You can freeze it but when you thaw it out let it rise for at lest 4 hours afterwards before you bake it

  • Why not bake it and freeze baked loaves? That's what I do. I've never had great luck with baking frozen (then thawed) bread dough, although I'm sure it can be done. If you freeze it unbaked, it's best to freeze it AFTER the first rise and you've formed the loaf.
