How to store leftover pizza dough

Leftover pizza dough can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge. The dough will keep rising in the fridge, so sometimes it will break open the airtight container. Leftover pizza dough can be stored for up to 2 days in the fridge.

How to store pizza dough after it rises

After your pizza dough rises, you can keep it on your counter for a couple of hours before using it . If you won’t be using it the same day, store it in the fridge overnight.

How to let your dough rise overnight in fridge

You can let your dough rise overnight in the fridge very easily. Dough that is made with yeast will constantly be rising and expanding in the fridge or on the counter. It creates gas bubbles that make the dough increase in size. After your dough has risen overnight, punch it down to release the gas bubbles and then you can roll out your dough and bake your recipe.

How to make pizza dough a day ahead

You can easily make pizza dough a day ahead and then store the dough in the fridge overnight. It will continue to rise and expand, even if you put it in an airtight container. Once you’re ready to use your dough, let it come to room temperature ~20 min. Then roll out your dough and bake your pizza. You can store your pizza dough in the fridge for up to 2 days in the fridge.

How to add flavor to pizza dough

Adding flavor to pizza dough is fairly simple to do by adding a few of your favorite spices:

  • dried oregano
  • dried basil
  • garlic salt
  • garlic flakes
  • chili flakes
  • Italian seasoning (if you want to make it easy on yourself)

You can add 1 tsp – 1 tbsp in total of your spice mixture to your pizza dough. Add the spices to your dough when you add the flour. Mix the flour and spices together first, then add them to your pizza dough. The spices will even distribute as the stand mixer kneads your pizza dough, adding an aroma of flavors to your pizza dough. You will love the added burst of taste in your herbed flavored pizza dough.

When you’re making your pizza dough, instead of using regular extra virgin olive oil, you can use garlic infused olive oil. It will add a punch of garlic flavor to your pizza dough. Alternatively, you can make your pizza dough, roll it out, and add a brushing of garlic infused olive oil to the pizza dough where you plan on putting your pizza sauce. The garlic olive oil will give you a savory taste to your palate.
