Remember when your Mom scolds you about your food?
Eat your peas, Chloe! Chloe, put that Weiner down right now! Chloe, never scoop your soup with your hands! CHLOE, don’t play with your food!
Well, maybe I was a bit naughty when I was a kid. A meal won’t be complete without me flinging the food that I was eating. Although I don’t have any clue as to why my childhood self would always initiate food fight, I’m quite sure that one of the reasons why I do this is because I get bored easily with my food.
My crazy childish entity inside made the saying Don’t play with your food quite heavy and critical. It is as if like tying me was the only way to stop me from playing with my food. I mean, who can’t see the fun when you play with your food, right? Just look at this guy from Pizza Pizza and you’ll see what I mean!
The guy on the vid made pizza dough turning look like he was just enjoying it.
Like, come on! Pass me a dough and let me try it for once!
Well, believe or not, pizza dough throwing is not just to show that these pizza creators are much more talented than you. Pizza throwing could be good for your pizza! How? Because of SCIENCE!
Unlike flattening the dough with your typical rolling-pin, dough tossing helps it maintain its moisture content, leaving the dough chewy and a bit less crunchy. The air that flows on the dough as its spins in the air is enough to dry out the outer layer of the pizza dough.
So yep, these pizza guys are doing their own science fair inside pizza parlors!
Thank you, pizza throwers, for making pizza more valuable with your throwing skills. And you should thank yourselves too because you’re the only people who could play with their food without being scolded by my mom.
