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

Put it into the fridge in a zip loc bag or in tub and leave in the fridge until you would like to use it.

To freeze, coat in a light layer of oil and keep in a zip loc bag (freezer safe), remove the air from the bag and freeze for up to 3 months :)

Hope this helps :D

Happy cooking.
