Store Bought Pizza Dough -- Dead

sbp | Jun 5, 2006 01:49 PM

I recently bought 4 small bags of pizza dough at the supermarket (not frozen). Wanted to make flatbreads. Kept them in the refrigerator overnight, then took them out and oiled the surface in the morning. At lunchtime, I hand stretched and tossed on pizza stone. They didn't rise, just became tough, doughy and brown.

Did I buy dead dough? Is there a way to tell in the store if the yeasts have kicked? Or did I do something else wrong.
