Oh, this looks like something I need to check out! I bake sandwich bread for my family about 3 times a week, so figuring out how to speed up the process sounds good to me.

My slow cooker is ever present on my kitchen counter, so thank you for another way to use it. I love warm fresh bread with soup, so I will try this next time soup is on the menu. Let me add frozen bread dough to my shopping list..

What a marvelous method to use with yeast risen bread dough! Follow the original directions for frozen prepared dough or about half the time given for your own scratch prepared dough. One last note, for scratch - homemade - dough use traditional active dry yeast. If you use RapidRise - instant - yeast you will get a coarser textured bread. Not so great for sandwiches but pretty darn wonderful to have with a bowl of homemade soup or stew.

I forgot to note that this works best for recipes that have only one rising.

Would this also work with homemade dough?

Yes it does. The Rising time is about half what you need for frozen prepared dough.
