Jayson Lamoree is tossing rounds of dough high into the air during the lunch rush on a Tuesday afternoon. The line inside is nearly to the door, but nobody seems impatient. They're stopped, mesmerized by the spinning pizzas to-be.
Lamoree, a 25-year-old Davis resident, took a couple minutes to give us some tips on how to spin dough. Here's what he had to say:
- Start by tossing around a wet hand towel. If you can do that, take a throw pillow and do the same.
- You'll know when you're ready for dough when those small pillows are shot, Lamoree said. "They'll all have a hole in the middle because of the spin."
- Use a rolling machine to get the dough flat.
- Practice, practice, practice. "It's all about finesse."
So which size of pizza is most fun to spin? Lamoree said it's got to be the extra large.
