dead yeast in the pizza dough

i made some pizza dough the other day that needs to ferment for 3-5 days in the fridge.  i just tapped into a new bag of bulk yeast and because my last container was always fool proof i neglected to proof the yeast. well, it's a bad batch so my dough never developed. i now have two lumps of everything for pizza dough except yeast. any ideas what can be done to put this to some other use, other than letting my cousin hit me with it since it was supposed to be for her birthday tonight?  thanks, mike
