I picked up two tricks from this video that will be very handy: 1.) roll out dough in a "W" formation, and 2.) Sprinkle corn meal on the bottom to keep the dough from sticking to the pan. I always have trouble keeping my dough perfectly round, but this video should definitely help... and I'll have to give that corn meal thing a try sometime. Thanks mate!
