Do you think I can use expired fridge dough tonight?

Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Archive May 2006: Do you think I can use expired fridge dough tonight?

I have a pack of refrigerated pizza dough that expired on the 30th. I really want buffalo chicken pizza tonight! Do you think it will work??

By Cat on Tuesday, May 2, 2006 - 04:28 pm:

I would. I don't think it'd hurt anything. :)

By Tonya on Tuesday, May 2, 2006 - 04:44 pm:

I don't check dates on stuff like that if it is still in the fridge and I open it and it rolls out good I use it.

Where do you get buffalo chicken from?

By Luvn29 on Tuesday, May 2, 2006 - 04:49 pm:

It should be just fine. I never check dates on things like that. As long as it looks fine and smells fine and feels fine, it is fine. You can tell when dough is no longer good.

And especially with this only being the second, I don't think you have anything to worry about.

It's probably OK, however, I wouldn't use it if it had been expired for several weeks or months.

By Reds9298 on Tuesday, May 2, 2006 - 05:03 pm:

Yeah, me either Trina, but it was SO close and I want it!!

Tonya-It's a P Chef recipe if you'd like it. It's delicious and super easy! I'll post it on the recipe board or email it if you want it. It's a buffalo chicken "simulation"! :)

I wouldn't worry about it... it's only 2 days, and those dates usualyl have a *little* buffer zone.

By Paulas on Tuesday, May 2, 2006 - 06:28 pm:

Sounds yummy, please post recipe

We used the dough and it was great. Thanks everyone. :) I'll post the recipe here and on the recipe board.

Buffalo Chicken Pizza
This thin, crunchy pizza delivers the traditional flavor of spicy Buffalo-style chicekn wings.

1pkg. refrigerated pizza crust (10oz.)
2 plum tomatoes seeded and chopped
1/2c. celery, chopped
1 c. shredded mozzarella
2 T. fresh parsley snipped
1/2 c. ketchup
1 T. vinegar
1 t. Tabasco pepper sauce
1/4 t. salt
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1 1/2c. cooked chicken
1/4 c. ranch or blue cheese dressing

(FYI:I don't use tomatoes or celery, my parsley is NOT fresh, I use garlic powder, and it's still delicious!)

Preheat to 450. Spray cookie sheet or flour a baking stone. Unroll dough and roll out to desired thickness.

Coarsely chop tomatoes and celery into a bowl. Add mozzarella and parsley, mix well, and set aside.

In smaller bowl, combine ketchup, vinegar, tabasco, salt and garlic. Add chicken and mix well. Spread this evenly over the dough, then top evenly with cheese mixture.

Bake at 450 for 5-7min. or until golden brown. Drizzle with dressing and enjoy!

Out of curiousity, was that a "use by" date or a "sell by" date. But whichever it was, I agree (and as you discovered), if it's only a few days past the date there is no problem.

Along those lines, I read an article recently that the "use by" date on many medicines, prescription and OTC, is pretty much arbitrary and there is some movement to have the manufacturers use a realistic date, that is, one that has to do with the probably expiration of useful or safe life, rather than a much earlier date to promote buying a new bottle or tube.

I cooked biscuits one time that were about 2 weeks past the date on the can. They didn't taste bad or make anybody sick. They just didn't rise well. BTW, I didn't realize until after the meal that they were so out of date. I was wondering why they were flatter than normal. OOOOPS!
