Can anyone show how to make a Pizza Dough Press? Answered

Does anyone know how to make a pizza dough press for home use?


I know this is years old but it showed up in a google search so i thought i would link over to my project.

I don't think I've ever seen a pizza dough press.  Why not roll it out with a rolling pin as you do with a regular pie crust?

... or learn to throw it, which has the advantage of stretching/organizing the gluten radially a bit better than rolling would.

(I never really tried to master that technique, and have mostly settled for roughly stretching the dough into shape. That usually produces a much thicker crust -- topped bread rather than pie-crust style -- but that's also a legitimate form of pizza and just as tasty if you've got good dough.)

Agreed. The stretched crust is my favorite, although I do cheat and use my bread machine to knead the dough. The rustic, irregular shape seems to be very popular these days, anyway.

If you are having a pizza party that would be a lot of work

Maybe so, but probably less work than building a dough press, unless you have a whole lot of pizza parties.

Mash the dough between two pans. If you need to you can sit on them for extra squishitude.

Squishitude.  Downwardabilityness.  You Brits and your neologisms!  Why can't you maintain some respect for the English language, as we Americans do?

Who are you calling a Brit? Them's fightin' words, hombre. You have impugned my Americanosity! I challenge you to a duel: slegdehammers in five and a half feet of water! Wait... how tall are you, again?

For the record, I thought "downwardabilityness" was brilliant. And I'm not just sucking up to Kiteman, either.

Bwa, hah hah!  I can never tell the difference between y'all Southerners and Brits.  You both talk real funny :-D 

Oh, indeed, "downwardabilityness" was utterly brilliant.
