I actually buy mine frozen from a small local store that makes their own homemade dough and sauce. I take the dough out in the morning before work and put it in a oiled bowl cover the bowl with plastic wrap and leave it in the fridge until I get home from work then let the bowl sit on the top of the fridge until I am ready to make the pizza.

Dough freezes well, but for one day you're better off keeping it in the fridge. The flavor will improve with a day in the fridge, and that is not enough time to give it a beery smell. From my experience, doughs don't start to get a beery smell unless they overrise and the yeast dies. This is not likely to happen overnight in the fridge.

I know of many pizza bakers who will not even consider using pizza dough on the first day that it is made - it needs time to let the flavors develop.

I hope you realize that a plastic shopping bag is not "food grade" and chemicals from it are probably leeching into the dough. Of course that may give it flavor.

Support bacteria. It's the only culture some people have.
