  1. Hi Jennifer! Thanks to your recipe, I have successfully made Margherita Pizza for the first time :-)! The sauce and crust were so delicious. I have 2 balls of dough left over and I was wondering how long will it keep in the fridge or is it okay to freeze it and use at a later time. Thank you again!!!
