Definition: To prick a pie crust with a fork before baking. This lets the steam escape so the pie crust doesn't puff up in the often. Usually used when blind baking a pie crust before filling. There are docking tools you can buy that will dock a crust before you put it in the pie pan.
Examples:
Dock the pie crust before baking so it will lay flat and will not puff up.
