Things Needed

  • All-purpose Flour, for dusting
  • Rolling Pins 
  • After kneading pizza dough, let it rest for 30 minutes and then, keep in the refrigerator. Ensure that it gets chilled.
  • Clear off the work place, where you will be rolling the dough, and ensure that it has enough rolling space and is totally clean and dry. 
  • Lightly dust the work surface with flour.
  • Take out the dough and place it on the work surface.
  • Using the flour, lightly dust your hands and the rolling pin.
  • Pat down the dough with your hands, to give it the shape of a thin patty.
  • Placing the rolling pin in the center of the dough, roll it away from you.
  • This will flatten one half of the dough.
  • Now, place the rolling pin in the center again. This time, roll it towards you.
  • The other half of the dough will also get flattened.
  • If required, dust the rolling again.
  • Repeat the steps and keep on flattening the dough, till it attains the desired thickness. 
Some Tips 
  • While flattening the dough, always keep the rolling pin in the center, initially.
  • Never ever flatten the dough all the way, in a single pass. First flatten one half and then, move to the other.
  • Always apply even pressure on the rolling pin.
  • Before flattening the dough further, ensure that it has a uniform level of thickness.
