How to Shape Pizza Dough

Posted By Jessica Fisher On October 8, 2010 @ 12:36 pm In Good Eats | 14 Comments


You know how very much we love to have pizza ’round there here parts. It’s a regular part of the week [5].

When I was a girl, the family favorite pizza parlor was ChiChi’s Pizza. If you know the San Fernando and Santa Clarita Valleys, you know what I’m talking about. Our ChiChi’s had a viewing window where the pizza man would toss freshly made dough into amazingly round pizzas. I loved to watch them work.

My pizza making is not quite as dexterous. But, so many of you have asked for a pizza vlog, so here it is!

In the video I demonstrate how to make individual pizzas. If you’re new to pizza making, this is the size I recommend. Not only can each diner add what he wants on top, but you’ll have better control over the dough. If you struggle with the center of a larger pizza not getting cooked enough, this will help.

My regular dough recipe [6] makes enough for 8 individual size pizzas.

I am, by no means, a pizza tossing expert. But this method works well for me.
