Making Pizza Dough Ahead

Cooking Tip of the Day

Whether you’re making your pizza dough ahead of time or you need to save portion of the dough because you have more dough than you need…. you can easily store it in your fridge.

All you have to do:

Just roll your dough in a ball….

Take a large Ziploc bag and spray the inside with cooking oil.

Place the dough inside the bag… press out all the air and seal.

Refrigerate up to 5 days.

The dough may rise a little more again… that’s okay.

The bag may puff up … just let the air out again and reseal the bag.

When you’re ready to use the dough… take the dough out of the fridge about 30 minutes before use to get it to room temperature or so (this will make rolling out easier).

The dough may have risen a bit and be a little sticky so you may have to knead it by hand a few times on a floured board. The dough should be smooth and elastic. (The consistency of bubble gum that has been chewed for a while …I know …yuck…. but hey… the description fits)

Then use the dough as your recipe directs.
