    Will the white bread dough work as well?

      You can certainly use our Bread Dough. Just let it thaw completely and divide into pieces.

      DO you need to let the bread dough raise and then roll it out

        You really don’t need to let the dough raise just let it thaw so you can work with it. But if you do happen to let it raise that’s fine too. Just stretch it out and fry in the oil. Enjoy!
