Learn To Stretch Your Dough By Hand

Unless you are making a cracker thin crust, it is better to stretch your dough than roll it out. Rolling basically pushes all the air out of the dough, and compresses it so that the crust is dense. Learn how to stretch it by hand instead – you get much more control over the dough. And the good thing? Even a fairly misshapen dough tastes great, and will have great texture. There are lots of videos online to teach you to stretch.
