Super speedy skin stretching (video)
« on: September 28, 2012, 10:24:04 AM »
Check out this video on Youtube. He is stretching the skins so quickly I can't quite figure out the motion he is using to do it. Can anybody break this down for me:

A pro at work!! :chef:

I wish my dough was as easy to work with as his.

That must be a really high volume opperation! Considering I make one pie a week it will take me the rest of my life to get good. Oh well :(

You and me both Mark. I am not necessarily interested in going that fast, but I figure any technique that can go that fast must have a certain simplicity to it that maybe I could use. Maybe wishful thinking.

I do not recall seeing that particular 'slapping' motion in any other videos.

Yeah, I saw he tore one skin, but overall they looked pretty consistent - at least size wise.

That dough is extremely relaxed, hard to say what else is going on without tasting it.

I am always surprised when I see people able to dress the pizza on the counter and then transfer onto a peel afterwards. Having occasional mishaps having trouble getting it off and into the oven I can't imagine the extra stress of getting it onto the peel as well. Of course he makes more pizzas in a night than I can make in a year.

I like the little spins he idly added to a few of those skins, near the end, as well...

ogdred,

You will see that with Neapolitan style pizzas of moderate size (e.g., 10-12") and with only a few toppings but you won't see that with a typical NY 18" pizza with a lot of things on it. And never with a metal peel.

the guy seems to get his balls stretched to where he wants and stops there.

I always have a litle spring back so I have to stretch a little more to compensate.

Is that  63% hydrated dough? This guy made bout 20 pies in the time it takes me to make one. I think the slap is counterclockwise.

Good point. I did not think to check his other videos. He has a bout 48 of them and some of them are pretty cool. I sent him a message on Facebook asking to come here and explain his technique.

I get what you are saying, but man it sounded so wrong the first few times I read it.  :o

Here is another video of Mario doing his thing. The end is cool because it shows how they go from round pies to rectangular.

slybarman,

I just wanted to say Thank You for posting the video clip. I really Loved it. It is amazing to watch someone make that many pies in such a short time. Great stuff.

Thanks again

Mario still got game.


I can't figure out how he (and a lot of others I see in videos) seem to get away with using so much bench flour. When I used flour, before going to semolina, if I used that much it would have ended up all stuck to the cornice and would have tasted bad and inhibited browning. The pros don't seem to have that problem.


He also goes pretty light on the sauce.
