Have you been trying to make your pizza dough from scratch? It's harder than you thought, right? It turns out that it might not be the recipe that's to blame but the dough itself.

In a masterclass, Naples pizza chef, Antimo Verde, shared his top tips for the perfect pizza dough. But what shocked us, wasn't the ingredients he used but his tool of choice, a $2 plastic Bunnings scraper!
Pro Renovator 100mm Plastic Scraper, $1.78
After making your dough and resting it, Antimo uses the nifty scraper to lift the dough from the container.
Antimo shared that a traditional scraper will set you back anywhere between $20 to $30, but he's been using this cheap alternative for years and hasn't looked back.
It all started when he used to work at Zero Gradi at Crown Melbourne in 2014 and they desperately needed scrapers. As we all do, Antimo phoned a friend and his friend came through with the suggestion of this budget-friendly tool.
Antimo not only uses the nifty tool to cut the dough, but he also uses it to lift dough in one swift motion from the container to a floured surface to rest.
