  • Patent number: 4573388
    Abstract: A pizza docker assembly including a motor driven shaft on which are mounted a plurality of docker wheels each including radially extending spines for perforating dough as it is passed therebeneath. The spines on adjacent docker wheels are offset to avoid forming a continuous line of spines and thereby reduce the tendency to lift the dough after it is perforated. A comb assembly attached to the docker assembly aids in separation of any dough lifted by the spines.
