Take out the dough and place it on your counter. Be sure to add some flour to your counter beforehand so it doesn't stick. Roll the dough into a circle, then transfer to a 9-inch pan. Press into the pan then dock the bottom and trim the edge. Freeze for about 30 minutes.

With a fork pinch some holes into the dough so it doesn't rise, place a piece of parchment paper and fill the middle of the mold with beans or baking weights, so it doesn't lose its form.

Notes

I recommend serving it the same day or in 24 hours before the bananas turn brown. The lime juice will help but I do not recommend having it for 48 hours before serving.
