One of mine did that. I think it was the first one I tossed. Too thin I guess. I will be practicing with the toss thing!

Nice job on the pizza–it looks delicious! I had trouble with my first batch being too thin, too. When I made the dough again, I added a bit of whole wheat flour and cut back on the oil, and that seemed to help. I agree–I think I’ve got a new favorite dough!

Mine ripped too, but I enjoyed the flavor. Your pizza looks delicious!

Your topping photo is a knock-out!
I used AP flour and no oil. Thought it was wonderful: thin, chewy but crisp and great taste. Now I must try it with bread flour and the oil.

No tossing necessary here, because the dough was so soft, just a bit stretching was right. It’s all about the flour.

Your pizzas look very appetizing!

That is one tasty looking pizza!

One of mine ripped too, the rest were stretched enough just from picking them up.
It was a very soft, pillowy dough.
Your pizzas look great! Hole or no hole.

Mine stretched itself too – definitely very soft. Nice toppings, and the end result looks delicious.

my dough was too sticky to toss as well. YOur pizza looks great!

Aww, that is too bad your pizza tore, it looks delicious!

Heather B said in October 29th, 2008 at 9:16 pm

Even though it ripped, it still looks delicious! Great job!

I thought it was cheese, too. It happens all the time to me, too. Once an area is gets stretched too thinly, it’s hard to patch it up.
Still looks delicious to me, though.

By my third pizza, I knew I didn’t have to toss it as much; the first ripped slightly, the second folded in on itself. I’m guess just stretching it gently first with only one toss would probably work. I love kalamata olives on my pizzas, too. Yours look delicious.

My dough was the same – there was no way I would have been able to toss it! It looks wonderful!

Your pizza looks great. I’m sorry about the hole. I made a pizza once that stuck to the counter & to get it onto the pan to bake, I ended up having to fold it all up & make it a calzone. It still tasted great, just looked awful.
