How to throw pizza dough

Filed Under: food, in the kitchen

throwing pizza dough by Bjorn Soderqvist on FlickrMmmm.... pizza. Not only does it make a tasty meal, it's the perfect dish for the end of the week when your fridge is full of odds and ends and not much else.

Pizza is also a no-stress meal for families who love to be together, but who like different things. You can either make personal pans or let everyone top their own corner of a pizza with their favorite items.

Either way, pizza-making is a lot more fun when the dough gets thrown around. Throwing a pizza dough is no small feat (heck, I have trouble just getting it to stretch out to meet the corners of my pizza pan), but it's not impossible.

If you're cooking for a pizza-loving household, check out WonderHowTo, where Chef Michael Kalanty from the California Culinary Academy will show you some surefire tricks for throwing your own pizza dough.

The secret appears to be in pinching the edge, presumably so it doesn't fall on the floor. That's where my first attempt will likely end up... better make a little extra!
