Reusing pizza dough

I bought refrigerated pizza dough. When it was the day to make pizza, i left it out on the counter to rise, which it did. Unfortunately, i got home from work too late to make pizza.

I put the dough back in the refrigerator, and my question is, will it rise again when I take it out for the next time ? If not, what can i do with it?

I've done that before myself....I brought it back to room temp and it didn't rise but still used for pizza and it was fine...just maybe a bit heavy. Everyone liked the pizza.

You should punch it down, store in the reefer for 8 hours or more; then remove from fridge, form, dress and bake. It should finish rising in the oven.

My previous comment was based on the assumption the dough was yeast leavened. If it's not, all bets are off.

i generally make enough dough for 5 or 6 pizzas at a time. i store it in a plastic bag in the fridge for up to a week or more. in that time, it will rise and i will punch it down several times. i've never had any problems and in my opinion, the dough just gets better & better.

If a batch of refrigerated 5 minute dough, is replenished with a pinch of yeast and an appropriate ratio of water to flour (~50% bakers ratio+) and about 1/3 of the refrigerated dough is used daily, how long can the refrigerated dough be kept going?
