i haven't used itextsharp for a while, but i believe you need to add a new page and then add data to it.

thats the way PDFSharp works.  this code adds a number of index pages and adds text to them.

                            if ((idxCount) > indexpagenum * indexlinesperpage)
                            {
                                indexpagenum++;  //increment current index pages in use  
                                //add new page for rest of index
                                pageIdx = outPDF.InsertPage(indexpagenum - 1);  // add after prev index. starts at 0

                                gfx = XGraphics.FromPdfPage(pageIdx);


                                font = new XFont("Verdana", 10);
                                gfx.DrawString(string.Format("Index page {0}", indexpagenum), font, XBrushes.Black, marginX + 20, 70, XStringFormats.Default);
                                font = new XFont("Verdana", 12);

                            }

for (int i = 1; i <= 5; i++)
{
    doc.NewPage();
    doc.Add(new Paragraph(string.Format("This is a page {0}", i)));
