Pizza Americana dough: Am I kneading this right?

Romanmk | | May 23, 2007 07:22 AM

Tried Peter Reinharts Pizza Americana dough last night. It is supposed to come out a little sticky. I mixed the ingredients, knead a few minutes, rest a few minutes, and knead a couple more.
Just at the surface of the dough tiny rips and tears form every time you fold it. Is this right? Should the dough be totally smooth instead after this first round of kneading?
