In her galette dough recipe, author Mindy Fox suggests shaping the dough into a larger-than-usual 8-inch disk to make it easier to roll into a 14-inch round later. While you can use a rolling pin to flatten the dough ball, we found an even better method: pressing on the ball of dough with a 9-inch glass pie dish. The flared sides of the dish act as handles as you press down firmly and evenly. Simply stop pressing when the dough, which you can see through the dish, is the same size as the bottom, about 8 inches.
