Rained out... can I save the dough a few more days?
« on: June 02, 2021, 09:27:15 PM »
Hello!

I run a mobile pizza oven in Asheville, NC called Pizza Daddy. We may have to cancel an event tomorrow because of heavy rain. Weíve prepped 50 Neapolitan dough balls similar to the recipe found in the Pizza Bible. My question is this:

I have another event on Saturday. This will be 4 days from balling the dough and fermenting in the fridge. Can I still use these balls or should I make new ones? Typically we ball the dough, let it cold ferment for two days, and bake on day 3.

Help!

All the best,

Pizza Daddy

I use a modified version of pizza bible sourdough. It's good for me at 3 days and so far up to 8 days. YMMV

It's a sourdough starter, slightly more than he specs and way less IDY than his recipe. I use .5g, which I only use to extend the dough life as without it I don't think I can have it last as long. At 8 days the dough was more flavorful and easy to handle if you just use it cold from the fridge.
