Best Answer

Bread dough will become what is called "blown" dough. It will "blow up". Because of the gas bubbles produced by the yeast, it will keep growing until it has no structural integrity. It won't explode but may rupture and then will start turning into a puddle of goo. It also produces less than desirable looking bread and developes a bitter taste.
