Would it be OK to store dough in a plastic bag

I'm making this recipe ( https://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/no-knead-crusty-white-bread-recipe ) which allows for storage in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.  I cut the recipe down to 1/3 of the original until I see how it goes. The dough is in a covered bowl. The bowl takes up more room that necessary.

The question is, can I transfer the dough into a plastic zip lock bag until I'm ready to bake it?

Providing the bag is big enough.  Put a few drops of oil inside the bag, zipper it and give it a good squishing and rubbing first.  After filling, press air out as it will surly fill up with CO2 gas and perhaps place the bag inside a loaf pan with the zipper end up and a tiny opening for gas to escape.
