  1. so to freeze it, you rise it just like its going to be baked? and whats with it sitting in the fridge after rising? and how long in fridge till we wrap and freeze?

    1. We direct you to let it cool down slowly in the fridge, before freezing, so that you get the best product possible after freezing. Once frozen and you’re ready to serve: as it completely thaws in the fridge you can leave it there until you are ready to rise and bake. Our recipes have been tested in our OAMM kitchen, as well as real user test kitchens.

      1. ok, so instead of rising on counter, put dough in fridge to rise? i dont understand the cool down part if its just been on the counter rising. thx

        1. You are right Helene. That step is only needed if you are freezing the dough. If you want to use it right away you can just let it rise on the counter without placing in the fridge.

  2. So – just to clarify: If I am planning to freeze for use another time I do steps 1 & 2, then let it sit on counter for 2 hours (step 3), then put it into the fridge (step 4)? do I punch it down after it sits on counter so its deflated when I put in fridge prior to wrapping it up? And how long does it need to rest in the fridge before I wrap it up and freeze it?

    1. This post helps clarify why there are 3 sets of directions. That is correct. It should sit in the fridge for 4 hours. If you have more questions, we’re available to chat in the bottom right-hand corner!
