i just used active dry yeast instead of rapid rise by mistake. The pizza dough call for a lot of water. Will I be ok?

Right on!

You'll be fine. Rapid rise is a strain of yeast developed to, well, rise more rapidly. Yours will take a bit longer, but in the long run, you'll have a wonderful pizza.

I would think so. It might just rise a bit slower. As long as you have a good well-kneaded dough (springs back, blisters if you stretch it) and let it rise, covered, in about 85 degrees (over the pilot light if you have a gas stove, or just switch the electric oven on for a minute) it should be fine. Please let us know what happens.
