Freezing Pizza Dough

I'm looking at a recipe for pizza dough, enough to make three 20cm pizzas. I'll only be using two.

Can I freeze the third one? If so how and and at what stage to freeze or should I just bake the three and freeze the base of the third one when baked and when needed top and pop back into the oven?

As always thanks for the advice

A quick add on. The recipe states 500 grams Strong White Italian Flour. What's that in the UK I've never spotted it in my local Sainsburys.

Is Strong White Bread Flour the same, or at least a good substitute?

apparently its freezeable after the dough has risen, and to shape your pizza, then store in air tight wrapping.

Just found another piece of advice ..

1. Form the dough into individual balls, the size you would use to make one pizza.

2. Lightly spray each dough ball with spray oil, or wipe with olive oil.

3. Turn the dough over so it is lightly coated in the oil.

4. Slide the dough ball into a freezer bag and seal, squeezing out all the air.

5. Place in the freezer and freeze for up to 3 months.

6. When ready to use, put in the fridge overnight or for about 12 hours.

7. Before making the pizza, bring the dough out on the countertop and let warm up and rest for about 30 minutes before stretching out the pizza.
