Try this and let me know ur experience friends
U can preserve the dough in the fridge and make pizza after wards .. for that cover each dough in a cling wrap and then put in a zip lock bag and keep in the fridge for 1 day and for more than one day in the freezer .. Remove from the fridge 1 hour b4 and allow the dough to come back to room temperature and then make pizza ..
