Shaping your Pizza

-Take 1 of your dough balls and throw it on a floured surface

-Start to flatten your dough into a "small disc" as best you can with your hands 

-Working from the center, push the dough outward while spreading your fingers, making the disk larger.

-Pick up your disc and pass it from hand to hand stretching the dough out 

-Put both your knuckles underneath the dough and spin it on-top of your hands in the air like you see at a pizzeria 

-Sprinkle a baking sheet or pizza tray with flour and unroll you dough on top
