pizza dough - how long can I keep it?

tochipotle | Jun 1, 2009 07:21 AM

We've been having the most amazing pizzas lately. I've been making the dough and then using it within 2 hours.
We're going out of town this weekend to visit family - it's about a 5 hour drive - and we'd like to make pizza with them when we arrive. My nieces will love it. Problem is, the dough. Ideally, I'd like to make it the night before - as I'll be at work in the morning and then leaving for our trip at noon. Is this possible? If so, do I make it and then leave it in the fridge overnight? Or, do I freeze it and allow it to thaw as we drive (either way, it will be in a cooler)?
Or, is this too ambitious and the dough will be ruined?
Thanks for any advice.
