An important key to the success of your frozen dough creation is in having the product properly thawed. Here are some quick, easy and proven steps for thawing your frozen dough.

REFRIGERATIONShould time permit, the easiest way to thaw your frozen dough is to refrigerate it 6-8 hours before you need it. At this point, the dough will be very cold and completely thawed, ready for you to form into any shape or recipe.


Place your frozen dough in your baking pan or on the kitchen counter in a draft-free location. It is very important that the dough is always covered with plastic wrap.

Allow plenty of time for thawing (2 to 3 hours for bread dough, 11/2 hours for roll dough). Warmth and moisture hasten the thawing process.


You can use the microwave method, but be very careful not to overheat the yeast in the dough.

The bread dough thaws best in the microwave. Microwave 5 minutes on the defrost setting for one loaf of frozen bread dough.
