Make Your Favorite Crepes At Home! Sweet or savory crepes make for a great breakfast (or brunch), but most people only treat themselves to these pastries at restaurants because crepes can seem a bit daunting to prepare. Not only that, but a commercial crepe-making machine can cost upwards of $300! You would have to be pretty crepe crazy to buy one of those for some homemade crepes. These issues often cause us to settle for pancakes and waffles, but not anymore! Crepes made at home are not as hard as you think and with the Pizzacraft Crepe Kit, this
The PizzaQue Pizza Kit for Kettle Grills is the perfect way to turn your backyard barbecue into a wood fired oven. When the kit landed on store shelves last year, we detailed kit components, and how to use it in a blog post. Today we answer the #1 question about the kit.
Pizza steels are leaving pizza stones back in the Stone Age! 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!
Making a pizza usually isn’t compared to piloting a jet fighter, but go with me here. Just like pilots rely on an “aircraft marshaller” to guide them while landing (you know, the guy waving a glow stick in each hand), pizza-makers sometimes need a little guidance when sliding their pizza onto a hot stone. Finding the exact right place to shake your pizza off the peel can be tricky: do it too far back, and you’ll find your pizza sliding off the stone and into the gap between the stone and the back of the oven.

Yogi Berra once said, “You better cut the pizza in four pieces because I'm not hungry enough to eat six.” Maybe it’s not the best calorie-cutting mantra, but it does raise a good question: What’s the best way to cut a pizza? Well, here at the Pizzacraft headquarters we’ve been working on that question for quite some time, and we’ve got the answer for you.
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.
Just about every pizza enthusiast I've met eventually confesses their dream of owning a wood-fired oven. While some pizza fans research this daunting task in detail and even picture where they’d like to put their oven, others only know that they run on wood and they look awesome. Purists argue that nothing can match the heat, speed, and flavor of a wood-fired oven – and by most pizza experts’ standards, wood-fired ovens are the only way to cook a truly authentic Naples-style pizza.
In Asian cuisine, perhaps the single most important kitchen tool is the wok. Most people know what a wok is, and many experienced home cooks now own one. What some don’t know is that woks actually impart their own special flavor on food. It’s so special it even has its own name: “wok hei” or “breath of the wok.” Some of you may ask, “What do woks have to do with the Pizzeria Pronto?” Well, everything really – now that we’ve released the Pizza Oven Wok Kit!
