Making Pizza Dough Ahead???

Hi all. I'm making calzones this weekend for a bunch of people. It would make my life a whole lot easier if I made the dough a few hours ahead of time, But I've never let dough sit that long.

What do you think? Would there be any ill effects?

Make the dough the night before and keep it in the fridge to slow the rising process. It will be ready to go the next day and it will tate better for sitting overnight.

you want to cover it so it doesnt crust over.

Pizza places make the dough and keep it in the fridge for a few days.

since your not needing much rise like making bread it will be perfectly fine.
