How to stretch out a pizza? Pull it? Toss it?
« on: March 19, 2011, 04:49:44 PM »
I've successfully (finally) got a reproducible pizza from recommendations here, but.

I have no idea how to shape the pizza dough. I think no one rolls out the dough. Does everyone toss their dough? Does everyone do it the same way, or are there different styles?

And where can I find out about all these different styles?

Thanks.

I gently caress and coax my dough out whispering, "big oven spring...big oven spring"  :-D

Ah, but lest this thread get buried, I was serious.

And where can I find out about all these different styles?

Bill's link covers the Neapolitan side of things. This is the NY style approach:
