English translation:Pizza mix allows you to roll it out and cut it without shrinkage/retraction
Explanation:
Some doughs can be rolled out to fill a pan, but smaller pieces will shrink if the dough is cut. It sounds like this one can be rolled out and will retain its overall size and shape even if it is cut into smaller pieces. (That is, the pieces all together will make an area that is the same size as the whole batch of dough was when it was rolled out.)

rolling and kneading at the same time?


Explanation:

According to the Robert/Collins dictionary:

laminoir -roller (possibly like rolling dough, or using a rolling pin)

a l'emporte piece - means a punch, incisive or sharp (this could be like kneading bread)

sans retraction - without withdrawal

Perhaps this mix can be rolled and kneaded at the same time. I hope this helps.

CONT - The dough [coming from the dough extruder or the pre-sheeter] passes to the main sheeter which reduces it to a thin, continuous sheet.

2. Emporte-pièce:

From Termium:

English:Kitchen Utensils

cookie cutter s

pastry cutter s

3. Rétraction: shrinking [shrinkage] or contraction (derived from various entries in Termium & LGDT--pizze dough, which has a high gluten content, due to its elasticity, would certainly tend to contract towards its center when rolled and cut; if these appliances can keep this from happening, the product would indeed be much more standardizable)
