Pizza Dough rising question

ThePiglet | Sep 10, 2013 08:19 AM

Hi - I am making my first pizza dough recipe and I actually started it just a couple hours ago. The recipe ( said to put dough in an oiled bowl and cover with a kitchen towel until doubled in size, about 2 hours.

My question is... I actually had to go to work only after about an hour of letting it rise (I didn't plan out the timing too well). It hadn't doubled in size. Do you think I should try to get home as soon as I can to put it in the refrigerator or can I wait until it's been about 4 hours (when I take my normal lunch break). If I wait that long - will it be MASSIVE and ruined?

Thanks in advance!
