With 50 thousand uploads and 50 million views daily, Youtube is the leading video clip sharing site. However, Google is beta testing its own video service, and here are a few samples of dough tossing videos from the Google video site:
The precursor to the tossing is getting the dough flattened and partially stretched out. Some time ago, when I was at Lombardi's and in the pizza making area watching the key pizza maker at work, I saw the he was quite rough on the dough. He took one of the dough balls, flattened it into a disk, dusted it in a pile of bench flour, and then slammed it down on the work surface. Using the palms of both hands, he pressed down hard on the dough while he repeatedly turned it on the work surface, forming a rim in the process. He then slapped the dough between both hands several times and used his knuckles to stretch the dough. I asked him about tossing the dough, and he obliged by tossing the dough high in the air several times, ending with spinning the dough around on one finger. At this point, the dough took the form of a large, thin, disk that floated like a cloud, much like shown in some of the Google pizza dough videos referenced above. Lombardi's uses All Trumps high-gluten flour. The dough gets good gluten development and is fermented overnight. I don't think that our home KitchenAid mixers can produce a dough as good for spinning and tossing.
