    1. 1
      I sprinkle the yeast on the 4 cups water and add the 1/2 cup sugar and let the yeast work.
    2. 2
      In a large bowl or bread mixer mix powdered milk, 4 cups flour, salt and butter.
    3. 3
      Add the yeast water and mix (you can use an electric mixer) as you keep adding flour you will need to knead by hand (or use a bread mixer) Add flour until you get a stiff dough (you might not need all of flour, it depends on the moisture content of your flour) Knead for 15 minutes and then cover with a towel and let rest for 15 minutes.
    4. 4
      Divide dough into 4 equal balls.
    5. 5
      Smooth balls and place on a cookie sheet and cover with plastic wrap.
    6. 6
      Freeze balls until firm and then transfer to freezer bags and store in freezer.
    7. 7
      Recommended storage time 1 month.
    8. 8
      To Bake: remove frozen dough from freezer, open freezer bag and leave dough in bag to thaw or place on a cookie sheet and cover with plastic wrap to thaw.
    9. 9
      It is very important to have a plastic covering over dough to thaw (dough really dries out without the plastic covering).
    10. 10
      (It usually takes about 4 hours to thaw) Shape into loaves or leave round or make pizza crust or rolls or whatever you do with freezer dough.
    11. 11
      Let rise until doubled (1 1/2 hours) Bake regular bread loaves at 350 for 35 minutes.
    12. 12
      I like to brush the bread loaf with 1 beaten egg and return it to the oven for 5 minutes.

      I spent all week looking for the frozen bread dough at the local grocery stores and everyone was out or didn't carry it anymore. I found your recipe. I mixed this up by hand last night and wrapped each loaf and froze it. This morning took it out before church. When I came home I made stromboli with it and I should have taken a picture. It was picture perfect and tasted great too. Thanks for the recipe.

      This is just fantastic! Not having the right equipment, not even a big enough bowl, I sadly could only make half the recipe amount - which means I'll be making it again very, very soon! The bread was so soft - a really great texture. Used some of the dough to make Pepperoni and Mozzarella Monkey Bread. Making this by hand, I must say, gives one a great upper-body workout - an added bonus!
