And frankly, I don’t think the final product suffers all that much because of it. Could it be better? Of course. But it’s a far cry from Boboli (bleh). For a while I used raw dough from my local grocery store but found that it was very inconsistent and I had no idea how many times it had been frozen, thawed and refrozen – getting bad dough puts the hassle back in what is supposed to be a hassle-free workaround….
