i dont stretch by hand, only via a rolling pin and never seem to have had that problem. Sounds like your dough might be a bit dry?

Pizza places have a machine you feed them through several times, with a quarter turn each time - that makes them into a thick disk. 

Then you literally TOSS them, allowing the crust to fall down onto your loose, limply held wrists, turn the entire crust clockwise while gently pulling your forearms apart, about a whole turn - then toss it again. You are aiming for slightly bigger than your desired size. Then you pinch the crust up - and it should be the right size and not "elastic".

How do you guys keep your pizzas from just springing back when you stretch them? That seems to be the perpetual problem for me.

I tried once to spin dough by hand at home.  Made a mess. Never again.

It just takes practice. Cover your hands in flower. Make a ball of dough. Cover it in flour. Flatten it with the heels of your palms into a rough circle. Put down some flour on your surface, reflour the ball and your hands. Roll it out with a rolling pin, doing quarter turns to keep it round. Get it as flat as you can. If you have an automatic press - two rollers it can be fed through, that is best. Keep adding flour so it doesn't stick. Once you get it fairly flat and circular, start tossing it. Be patient. The first few times it won't seem like anything is happening... but eventually - it'll start to spread into a wider disk. 

I used to work at a place that made 27" pizzas. They used 9 pounds of dough. They would come down over you like a *sheet*.

So not had a deep fryer since i was a kid.  For some reason i just now got tired of using a regular pot + storing oil. "im over this". Went to grocery, guess what they had on sale this week :) 

Not a big radical deal by itself i agree, but this one has a magnetic power cord instead of something you have to shove in.  When did that start? That is pretty cool.

 

( while there i decided to pick up some Manwich too. Bunch of purple haired people protesting, punching holes in the cans with screwdrivers and calling people names for wanting to buy such an offensive product. And tossing mayo packets at them.  What is up with the mayo packet?

We made sausage and pepper wedges yesterday to celebrate Italian-American Heritage Month. Zeppole for dessert. Just like the food at a street fair.

Yum.

The mice need to eat too! Or you can eat the mice, if things get really bad.

I actually like the mice. They are very cute. I just want them to be in the barns instead of inside my house.

Agreed. It isn't the mice so much as it is the unsanitary mouse droppings.
Doesn't matter though; mice don't last long in my house because I have cats.
