  • Pizza Spinner

    Hi Guys

    I've been looking up methods on Hand Forming dough and came across this nifty piece of equipment to spin pizza dough without actually using your hands.

    SPZ40 Pizza Spreader

    I couldn't find any reviews about the machine and whether it can actually be compared and equated to that of hand forming/tossing/spinning method.

    Has anyone had experience or heard of the pros and cons of such a machine. I'm so curious to know whether it produces the same delicate, tender crust as a hand tossed pie.

    Looking forward to hearing from you guys out there.
    Thanks
    Regards
    OM

    Now, why would you want to go and get that? Think of all of the dough you could buy, from the dough you save, from not buy that. Just another cookie cutter.

      It would be great if you ran a high-volume pizza restaurant with a shortage of skilled workers (Pizza Hut, Shakey's, Papa Johns, etc).

      Home use? Huge waste. You're better off spending the money on a small commercial dough mixer.

        The video came up as "Private" would have been interested to see it work. Univex is a very good brand of commercial baking products. But I'll bet the price is huge...like in the thousands not hundreds. Yup... just looked it up $5,511 on amazon. Talk about driving up the cost of a pizza.

        Learn to hand toss, it's not difficult. They even make practice dough that you can spin around and drop on the floor until you get the hang of it.

          I wonder how I have lived so long without one of those?

          I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up.

              Hi Guys
              It took a lot of courage to start this thread because I know nothing has been developed yet to com close to the hand forming method

              I have to agree - the $5000+ price tag is quite hefty for home use but for interest sake I'd like to see a write up comparing the hand forming method against this machine, the sheet roller and the press.

              Maybe 1 day I may have my own pizzeria who knows then I would be interested in something like this.

                No worries, Oven Man! We're just having fun.
                If you asked about one of these, you might have been kicked off the forum!

                  Yes Oven Man...we are not picking on you just having fun with the equipment and gadgets available.

                  Now Ken....OMG what can I say...YUCK... I just did up a nice dinner of crapes and I must say when your picture came up it made my stomach flip. I can just taste the culinary delight that would come from that machine.

                  "Wonder pizza", is that because you wonder if what comes out is even pizza?

                    Faith, Did you do the crapes in the oven?

                    Ken, where in this world did you get that pic? Or was it from Pluto?

                      Aegis, No I did not do them in the oven but there is no reason that I couldn't. I use a cast iron pan to make the crapes so I could use the oven to heat the pan then pull it out in the entry and spread the batter. Would have been just as easy if I had my oven hot.

                            crępe why that is correct. Thanks for pointing out my spelling error. I know I really suck at spelling. Being dyslexic does not help my spelling nor does my age. Now that I have the correct spelling of crępe burnt in my brain once I go to bed and sleep my brain does a hard reset and I will spell it crape again tomorrow. But the bright side is I have many other skills such as cooking and building and everything under the sun....I'm extremely handy...but I just cant spell. So please just bear...bair...beer...with me and use your best guess as to what my attempted word is.

                            Thanks,
                            Faith

                              Hi Faith,

                              To your rescue: Dictionary defines: Crape-noun archaic spelling of crepe,
                              so for a person of your vintage and twist of mental gymnastics, you were right after all, so when you awake in the morning, either spelling will do. Yes, I will have a bier with you.
