HOW DO YOU PROOF FROZEN BREAD DOUGH?
You can proof frozen bread dough by thawing it thoroughly first, then proofing it as you normally would. Thaw dough by placing it on a pan or baking rack, then covering it and placing it in a cooler overnight. The dough should expand slightly during the thawing process, but it will still need some time to proof.
Once the dough isthawed, remove it from the cooler and let it sit at room temperature for five to 15 minutes. If the dough expands significantly while thawing, you may be able to reduce its proofing time. Follow steps three through six (above)—as well as any recipe instructions—to proof thawed dough.
