Can you prove pizza dough too long?
Don’t let it rise for too long, though. “A few days’ rise is fine and will enhance the taste of the crust, but any more than three days and the yeast will start to eat up all the sugar in the dough and convert it into alcohol, which will adversely affect crust flavor,” Schwartz said.
How do I know if my pizza dough is Overproofed?

What happens if you don’t prove pizza dough?
What Happens If I Don’t Proof The Pizza Dough? If you don’t proof the dough then you will get a crust which has very little rise and small air pockets. Some dough are like this though – think of flat bread and other unleavened bread which contains no yeast.
Why did my pizza dough come out tough?
The first reason your pizza dough gets tough is that it contains too much flour. Or in baking terms, the dough has too low hydration. If the dough contains too much flour compared to water, the result will be a dry, tough pizza dough that’s hard to work with. The simple solution is therefore to add less flour.
How can I make my pizza dough more airy?

Why is my pizza dough rubbery?
