Anyone used one of these?
 
Now, I know this isn't quite in keeping with tradition, but I reckon this tortilla press design could be easily adapted to making pizza bases.
I reckon I could really speed things up for pizza parties.
Anyone tried it?

I made one many years ago after seeing it used in Mexico. If it were scaled up and had the proper leverage, I think it would work.

Thanks Les.
Does the dough stick much?
I'm assuming you floor the working faces?

I used minimal flour but the tortilla dough has way less water than my pizza dough. I may go out and play in the shop and build a press for personal sized pizza's to see if it would work. It would speed up the process. No one that has come into my home has the skills of Bruno Difabio. ;)
