  • Can I store extra pizza dough in fridge? Kumar

    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.

  • 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.

  • Last time I made pizza dough I was a bit...generous with the ingredients - not a problem, I thought, as I'd read before somewhere that pizza dough is nicely freezable. So, I broke the dough in half, sealed up one piece and placed it in the freezer - this was done immediately after kneading, with no time given for rising. Now I've got a frozen lump of pizza dough in the freezer, and I'm not sure... should I leave it in the fridge first? Or, is it better left somewhere warm through the entire defrost to help fire up the yeast? Or have I "done it wrong" and may as well dump this particular piece?

  • I have never used frozen pizza dough before so I didn't know how long it would take for it to thaw out. I plan on using it tonight for dinner (in about 7-8 hours) and I thought it would take much longer for the rock hard dough to thaw out. I have had it covered and sitting on the kitchen counter and it's almost completely thawed out! So once it's thawed can I keep it in the fridge until I'm ready to use it?

  • Last time I made Pizza I used the same recipe as always to make the dough, but this time I rolled out the dough really thin to get a nice thin pizza. As I put the pizza in the over I thought, "this is the best looking pizza ever made", but was massively dissapointed 7 minutes later when I was struggling to get the pizza off of my pizza tray. It was completely stuck to the tray. So, when rolling out a really thin crust pizza, what can be done to prevent it sticking to its cooking surface?

  • I've been making pizza dough for years, and recently found that I have a gluten allergy, and can no longer eat wheat flour! Very sad news, indeed. So... I bought Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Pizza dough mix, which has a bit of xantham gum in it, and serval kinds of flour (rice flour, tapioca, flour, corn flour, etc). The dough itself was difficult to work with, a bit crumbly, and not as stretchy as I would like. I know that the "stretch" I'm talking about truly come from gluten, but is there anything I can add, to help with the consistency? The flavor was perfect, and the calzones were
