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
