How to stretch pizza dough?

foxspirit | Jan 29, 201401:25 PM     42

Any tips for me? At first I tried making my own dough. Then thinking I was somehow sucking at making dough I tried the store bought fresh pizza dough. I'm having the same problem with both. I want to achieve a super thin crust that I can stick on the grill and cook quickly before layering on ingredients BUT when I try to stretch out my dough, it gets paper thin (too thin) in the middle and even tears so now I have a hole in the middle of my pizza and retains super thick edges. Also when I either make or buy enough dough to supposedly make a standard size inch round, it never gets there. It will stretch out to the 12 inches but then quickly shrink back up to a way smaller half size. I've tried watching the youtubes about stretching on the back of your knuckles etc but its not working for me. Any tips? Help?
