Buying pizza dough

I just received a recipe via email for making tomato/basil calzones. It suggest either making your own pizza dough or purchasing it from your favorite pizzaria. Have any of you ever purchased pizza dough?

    There's a pretty decent pizza dough available in the frozen section of most supermarkets - the name escapes me now.."house of dough" maybe? No pre-made dough is going to be the same as making your own, but in a pinch this stuff is pretty good.

    Most supermarkets sell frozen dough, or if they make pizza at their deli counter you could buy it there as well (it will be fresher). However, for the best pizza dough (aside from making it yourself) I would suggest going to your favorite pizza parlor and asking them to sell you some of theirs. I do it all the time and have never had a problem.

    Okay, now I'm interested! How do I ask for it? By the pound? Or do you say: "I need enough for..."

    Here in Florida, I just go to the bakery counter at Albertson's or Publix and ask them for one (or 2 or 3) of their Italian bread dough. They always oblige and it costs the same as the bread. It works out really well.

    I have tried the dough from Trader Joe's a few times. It is ok, not very elastic but adding corn meal did help.

    You would be better off making your own for what they would charge you.Once you mastered the dough its easy.

    My local Publix markets sell pizza dough by the bag, in a refrigerator case with the pies. It could be the same stuff as their Italian bread (which is nice and chewy), in any case it makes a pretty decent pizza.

    When I first started making my own pizza, I bought the Publix dough (it is their bread dough) and thought it was very good. Then I started using our old bread machine which wasn't being used for bread making anymore. This dough was even better and MUCH cheaper than Publix. If the machine has a dough/pasta setting it's really easy too. Also, the Publix dough came in 1 pound pieces, but the machine makes approx. 1-1/2 pounds; enough to make (2) 15" thin pies or 1 large cookie sheet pie that's a bit thicker. pb

    I get the herbed pizza dough from Trader Joe's usually two at a time. I let them sit out at room temp for about 30 minutes, put down some good flour on my board and then start pulling and pushing, then put it on a good olive oiled pizza pan with little holes in it lock it around the edges put any topping I desire at the time and have the items in place and bake in a very hot oven for 10 to 12 min.

    This usally comes out very good I always roll it out as thin as possible then it rises in bakeing.

    TJ's dough has always been good for me.
