Pizza Addiction

Six outta 9 thats Close.I've never made so good of pizza untill I got a steel.In fact I got two and I place it on the lower rack and then I place anothe steel on th rack above it about 5" and preheat for about an hour.The top steel holds so much heat it does the browning without using the Broiler.And I didn't go out and buy a pizza steel I went to a scrap metal and got them to cut em.Works like a charm.

Baking Steel Placement

I use a Quarter inch thick piecr of steel on th bottum rack of my Gas oven.It takes a good 45 minutes to 1 hr of preheat time to get to the right temp.I think my oven will push 600.Degrees 4/5 minutes and I get a good brown.Can always put it up on the broiler rack to brown the top but seems to work ok without that extra browing.Also I add alittle powered milk to my flour and never use less than a three day rise will also help the color

I use Mix monterey Jack with whole milk on most all my pizzas.Seems to give the cheese a little more tooth and seems to add a Buttery aspect to the cheese like a higher fat
