Use your thumbs to press in a 1.5cm crust

Hello,

Once you've mastered making dough, you'll need to learn how to stretch it. With a real Neapolitan pizza it should be no more than 3mm thick but unless you have an Italian master leaning over your shoulder you should be able to get away with 1mm either way. Next, use your thumbs to press in a 1.5cm crust around the edge of the dough.

I just want to make sure about: "use your thumbs to press in a 1.5cm crust around the edge of the dough": Does it mean that the thickness of the crust is 1.5cm or the space around the edge?

Thanks in advance.

    Yes, if you look at the picture of a Neapolitan pizza, it should become clear.
