Dough Prep: Rolling & Cutting
Rolling out the dough seems to be the part people fear the most. It really is not too bad if you follow a few simple rules.
3. It helps tremendously to use a guide of some sort to get your dough rolled evenly. You can use a rolling pin with built-in guide rings, or you can purchase rubber rings that will fit most regular rolling pins. A less expensive solution is to use 1/4" dowels placed on either side of your dough. Make sure your rolling pin is sitting on top of both dowels while rolling. It will do a great job at keeping your dough even.
