I've frozen trader joes pizza dough and thawed in the fridge when I was ready to use and it turned out well!

Refrigeration slows, but does not completely stop, reproduction of yeast. 24 to 48 hours is likely a good limit. Beyond that, you risk the yeast "over consuming its sugars," which means that not only will the rise be compromised, but so will the browning. It can't brown because there are no sugars left. Browning of any baked good is dependent upon the presence of sugars of some sort. When in danger or in doubt, store in the freezer, then thaw overnight in the refrigerator.

I'd go about 3 days...after 'sell by'. For pizza.
I'd also bring it to room temp to reactivate the yeasts for a few hours.

If it's really old or doesn't rise...roll it it cut it in strips. season it, cheese it, twist it, bake it..for bread sticks.

I am not a food scientist, but I, personally, would definitely still use the pizza dough as long as it doesn't smell as though it's gone bad.

That is the "sell by" date. It is the 12th.

Does the bag have a printed expiration date on it?
