Dough Press Problems
« on: August 01, 2013, 03:41:42 PM »
At the pizzaria where i work, we use our hands and a dough roller machine to make crusts. My boss found a doughpro DP1100 dough press and he wants me to get it working so we can make crusts faster. I have been having a problem where every time i try to press a doughball it comes out with holes in it. I have been using a temperature of 150F, and have tried both proofed dough and dough straight out of the fridge and i get the same problem. Can anyone give me any advice?

Maybe damaged rollers or too fast a rolling speed?

RemisPizza,

You might want to do a search on PMQ think tank.  I did a few searches on a Dough Press DP1100 and these are a few of the threads, or a post about the Dough Press DP1100.

I tried a dough press when I was first learning to make pizzas and then went to hand stretched doughs.

Yeah hand made doughs are much better than any machine, i sometimes make them completely by hand when were slow. But when we get 3 or 4 orders at the same time, we really need a way to get doughs out faster. Thats why i really want to get this press working.

The plates look fine, and it seems to heat up well too. Ive also been using a vegetable spray to help release the dough. We get very high quality pizza dough, so i can't imagine that being the problem.

Remi
in reality, theres no reason why you can't keep up with hand pounded dough......you don't have to pound to order....
