There's only one rise for pizza usually. If you do want a second rise (not because you "have to", but when you see the bubbles from the first rise has become crazy and uneven. Then you punch out the bubbles, fold it a couple of times, shape back into a ball and do a second rise), you can do both in the fridge. My cold rising time is at least 24 hours. Max is 48 hours.
after your final rise (first or second), you divide the dough while it's still cold. Now it'll need to get back to room temperature in order to be elastic. To do that, you let the divided dough rise again in a warm place. then you can shape the pizza.
you really should watch that episode. It might not be the kind you are expecting, but definitely worth trying out his recipe (remember to cut the salt by half, he tends to use too much salt very often)
