Max needs $10 \frac{1}{4}$ cups of flour for the pizza dough. He currently has $4 \frac{1}{2}$ cups of flour. To find out how much more flour he needs, subtract the amount he has from the amount he needs:

$10 \frac{1}{4} - 4 \frac{1}{2}$

$= \left(10 + \frac{1}{4}\right) - \left(4 + \frac{1}{2}\right)$

$= \left(10 - 4\right) + \left(\frac{1}{4} - \frac{1}{2}\right)$

$= 6 + \left(\frac{1}{4} - \frac{2}{4}\right)$

$= 6 - \frac{1}{4}$

So, Max needs $6 \frac{3}{4}$ cups more flour to make the dough.
