Toss that Pizza Dough!
By Colleen Messina
  

1     Pizza is easy to eat! It is gooey and delicious. Making a pizza takes skill. One part of the process is making the dough into a round, thin shape. Chefs often toss the dough into the air to make this shape! Tossing pizza dough takes practice.
 
2     Where do chefs get their pizza dough? Some chefs use pre-made dough. Another choice is to make the dough from scratch. This means that the chef does not use a prepared mix or other shortcuts. There are many pizza dough recipes. The basic recipe usually consists of flour, salt, oil, a sweetener, and water. Yeast is also added. Yeast makes the dough rise. This means that the dough swells up and gets bigger.
 
3     Let's peek over the shoulder of a chef in a pizza parlor. Chef Bob is his name. He is a roly-poly man who loves pizza! After making the dough, Chef Bob puts it on a floured work surface. He puts flour on his hands, too. The flour makes the dough less sticky. The dough can feel squishy. He makes the dough into a ball. Then, he presses the ball down with his hands. Chef Bob forms the dough into a round, flat shape that is about 1/2 inch thick.
