Default Help: Pizza dough? (cooking question)

Useless cook here ...

With my pizza dough recipe, once I've made the pizza dough it has to "sit" for two hours so the dough can rise.

Question: Can I make the dough the night before? And after it has had its 2 hours to rise, can I then pop it into the fridge? Then get it out the next evening to make the pizza? Or does leaving it in the fridge for 20 hours mean it gets all hard and unusable?

Thanks!

Let it rise first then knock it down, roll it in a bit of oil and cover it with cling film. It should keep a couple of days in the fridge. Let it rise for a bit before you use it.

I also make large batches of dough, cut it into smaller pieces (for pizzas or calzone) and freeze in plastic bags which have had all the air removed. Just take it out of the freezer in the morning and put in a lightly oiled bowl and cover. It will thaw and rise during the day and be ready to cook at dinner time.

No. I just love to cook, so my freezer is full of frozen lasagne, casseroles, pizza dough, etc.

What does the oil do? Just keep it moist?

It's the dough that makes your arse big, not the oil.

Dough can be kept quite satisfactorily for 5 or 6 days in the fridge, even before a rise. It still rises in the fridge. Having said that, if I plan to leave it for more than several hours, I reduce the yeast content a little.

This was my first attempt:

http://www.gobbledegeek.com.au/?p=27

These days, I'm quite adept at the pizza and my kids go mad for my baked bean variety. I keep meaning to update the blog with a better version but haven't had the time of late.

My next challenge is the 'classic' French stick and croissants but obtaining a suitable flour is key.

Be adventurous and good luck!
