Anybody ever have problems with air pockets in their pizza dough after cold-proofing almost 3 days and re-balling hours before ready to bake?

    I don't consider air pockets a problem - I like them in pizza.

    You are supposed to "dock" your dough before topping and baking.

    After you have it the shape you want it, take a fork and stab it where you are going to be putting toppings and don't want pockets. The rim is up to you.

    The docking will prevent pockets.

    Just deflate as you press/stretch out the dough. If there are lots of air pockets use a knife to slice into them.

    I kinda like the air pockets
