Can pizza dough be frozen?

If I make a few batches of pizza dough, can I freeze it after letting it rise for 48 hours in the fridge, or will I run into issues?

I freeze both pizza and pasta dough . Seems fine to me . Roll into a ball , portion sizes and wrap with plastic wrap then freezer bag .

No issues. The yeast just go dormant and recover when the dough warms up...JJ

A couple of things to help. Slow freezing reduces viability and most of us don't have blast freezers. If making the batch specifically for freezing, use more yeast as it will lose some viability and flatten the ball into a disk so it freezes faster.
