I remember watching this video before. Last week when I was at Spacca the owner was making the pizza, I wonder if he makes them differently? I think the method this guy used was kind of cool.

Larry, i think the important is that air is being pushed in to the cornicione and wen he pics up the dough and turns it he is getting the excess flour off... looks like the method used by Chris Bianco. as noted also, the dough looks a little more gentle than regular neapolitan, maybe that technic of stretching is done to preserve the dough from ripping.

That is very similar to how I do it.

Thanks for the video.
I love pigs. They convert vegetables into bacon.

Too rough.

Nevertheless, I've got to come up with a custom way of opening the dough.  It's a necessary signature.

I have my own unique method, but I'm not as fast as that guy.

What kind of oven was that? Looked strange, and like 5 feet off the ground.

his method of stretching looks like the one used by Nella, and some arab bread makers also use that style..
