im going to buy a hot press for pizza dough, probably 30 cm diameter but i want to make even smaler (25 cm).

I understand your question.  The hot press you mention is not something I know.  Could you describe it, please?

A google search turned up these; which seem to be geared toward commercial use.  Is this what you have in mind?

You should be able to get an edge on any size pizza.  The crust bubbles up because it is not weighted down by the toppings.  So as long as you leave the outline topping free you should get crust.
