    Pizza crust

    Stretchy pizza dough. I worked in Pizza places as a kid and LOVE making my own pizza. I have just recently started making my own dough rather than getting the store bough kind and I love it. But the last few tries my dough has torn rather than stretched. I has taught long ago that stretching the dough makes a better crust than if you roll it thin.
    Any ideas what I might be doing wrong?

    You have to let the dough rest for at least 15-30 min after making the dough, and before trying to stretch it.

    That could be it. Because ir doesn't need to raise much I didn't let it sit.

    The resting lets the gluten relax so that the stretch "holds". You get the same advice when making pie crust - any manipulation of the flour will cause the gluten to develop.
