Nice video - as a very young child I ate dinner with my family on Staten Island many many times and still have some relatives that live there - I remember going to a place called 3 Jays Villa, it was my favorite. I would always order the veal parm. That was back in the 60s so I'm sure it is a very different place now....

Slicing off the corners so the round ball fits the square pan... LEGIT!

Did you notice they edited out the part of stretching out the dough to fit the rectangular pan?

That's what I'd like to see, since anytime I tried to do it, it takes quite an effort to form a rectangular dough and then get it to fill the pan into the corners. It's challenging, to say the least, so I'd like to see exactly how a pro does it.

Thanks for that! Trimmed edges to the short side of the pan, and all the pushing was down, not trying to stretch at all (well maybe a little push into the corners) but thinning the dough and letting it expand outward as a result.

Kinda like when you start opening a round pie... why didn't I think of that?!   :-D

For rectangular pans, it's best to form your dough balls into an oblong shape rather than the typical sphere.  It also helps when the dough has the right extensibility, as doughs that are too elastic will fight you every step of the way.  Check out some youtube videos on teglia romana by Pino Arletto to learn proper stretching, especially for rectangular pans.

I see he's having a similar problem that I have where you push the up into the corners and a few minutes later it pulls back. These guys also edited their video to hide that fact, but you can see if you watch closely.

Thanks I'll have to check that out.

My best method so far is to use a rolling pin working from the center diagonally into the corners to from a rectangle that is considerably larger than the pan. Then I fold in into thirds to transfer it to the pan and work it like they guy in the video that Norma posted.

Here's a great demo of how the pros do it!

His dough is 95% of the trick as you can see how extensible it is. He's also using a larger amount of dough than I typically use, which will also help to keep the dough towards the edges of the pan.

Great example here..
