The other day I went to PapaJohns and noticed that they had a roller that had spikes on it and they rolled it on their dough to make some impressions in the dough.
Last weekend I decided to take a fork and try it and I made dents all over my dough.
I don't normally make dents, what are the dents supposed to do?
One of my family members theorized that it might let the heat travel up faster and help with the cooking.
I'm under the impression that the dough was softer once cooked, but I don't know if that's psychosomatic or not.
What does making small dent impressions on pizza dough actually do?
