Once word got out that slabs of steel conduct heat better and are more durable than stone, we here at Pizzacraft saw interest in them skyrocket. With that came new questions – and new ideas – about how to use the steels. “Can a pizza steel be used on a gas grill?” was one that caught our attention. After all, when Pizzacraft was founded, we focused products for cooking pizza on the grill. Some rigorous testing was definitely in order!
Your home oven can bake, braise, broil, and roast just about anything you pick out for dinner, but there’s one dish it needs a little help with: pizza. Home ovens simply don’t get hot enough to make the perfect pizza, unless you have the help of a good baking surface capable of retaining high heat in order to get the job done. So which baking platform is best, and which one is right for you? It depends really, so let’s take a look at the different types of pizza stones available help you make your homemade pizza the absolute best.
