I usually use a rolling pin to roll out my dough.

The less dough you use the thinner you can roll it.

How to roll dough

Start by lightly flouring your table or countertop and form the dough into a ball or disk.

Flour the rolling pin and work from the center out.

I roll away from me and then put the pin back in the middle and roll toward me using even pressure.

Even pressure also helps keep the nice round shape you started with.

Don’t roll over the edges of the dough, this makes the edges too thin.

how to roll dough, turning the dough

Give the dough a quarter turn.

I try to use my whole hand because picking up the dough would stretch it.

This ensures that the dough isn’t sticking to the table or counter as your rolling it.

If the dough sticks at all dust the table, also dust the top of the dough or the rolling pin if it starts to stick.
