I kneaded some pizza dough and it turned out that I have done this double the amount I wanted to. This is my first time. Can I store this dough in fridge? And for how many days?

Yes, you can store it for about a day in the fridge. Let it warm up again before you cook it though.

it turns out that my first take on baking a pizza was 80% good, I kneaded dough for one pizza but it seems I can bake at least 3 pizzas :-) thanks for your help – Kumar Mar 31 '11 at 4:16

Yes, the colder the fridge, the longer you can keep the dough in the fridge. It will overrise after a day or two. Take it out of the fridge for an hour or two until it happily rises.

Pizza dough can also be frozen. I freeze mine immediately after finishing, and thaw it in the fridge for a day. Supposedly you can thaw it in the microwave.

only at the lowest power in the microwave.... if you raise the temp of the dough too high you will kill the yeast. – sarge_smith Mar 31 '11 at 4:18
