  4. Punch down dough. Turn dough over; brush with oil. Cover bowl tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 2 hours or until ready to use, punching down dough occasionally.
  5. About 2 1/2 hours before serving: Grease 15 1/2" by 10 1/2" open roasting pan. Cut dough into 30 equal pieces; shape into balls and place in pan. Cover with towel; let rise in warm place, away from draft, until doubled, abut 1 1/2 hours.
