Frozen pizza dough

irishnyc | | Jan 18, 2008 06:30 PM

The last few times I bought frozen pizza dough (from a reputable, local Italian market) it just does not rise! I don't have the patience or desire to make my own dough, so please don't suggest that, but what the heck am I doing wrong?

I let it thaw overnight in the fridge, then mid afternoon put it in an oiled bowl and leave it on the counter or in my gas oven, depending on the room temp. Today I gave up on having pizza for dinner after it hadn't moved in 3 hours. Here it is almost 9 hours after I set it out to rise, and it's still as flat as anything.
