Smile Focaccia - store dough overnight?

I am due to make focaccia for a dinner party tomorrow night. I have a recipe to use and have made it before. In the recipe it says to leave the dough one hour to rise/double in size.
My question is, can i leave it covered in the refrigerator overnight so I can complete the process tomorrow evening?

Any help would be appreciated.

Yes - in fact your dough will be even better and have time to develop more flavor.

BUT - cold dough takes a long while to warm up enough to rise so allow extra time.

Interesting how to here: https://alexandracooks.com/2018/03/0...best-focaccia/

Forget love... I'd rather fall in chocolate!

I would also decrease the yeast a bit because it will rise in the fridge, just a check of a lot slower.

When I make no-knead bread I put the dough in the fridge after the first rise and keep it there for at least a few days, usually not more than a week, although some say you can keep it up to 14 days. The improvement in flavor is noticeable.

I let the dough warm up after taking it out of the fridge for 60 - 90 minutes. I should probably take the temperature of the dough, but the hour plus seems to work. After that I proceed with folding and letting it rise the second time.
