Can I use OLD PIZZA dough from Fridge as STARTER??

March 21, 2011 - 7:35am -- Rico Laguna

Folks, I have some old left over pizza dough that I had made that I put in a Ziplock bag (about 2 dough balls) that has now been in the fridge for about 8 days and has developed an acidic fruity aroma that probablly smells more intense than my actual stored starter!  (go figure!)


I was wondering if there is any use for this pizza dough as a starter or to mix in with my starter that is in the fridge?....any ideas?


The pizza dough consists of not just flour water yeast and salt, but it also has some sugar and olive oil in it......does this matter?
