The Story

On the clock, I work for a family-owned steel manufacturing company. Outside the office I consider myself a food enthusiast.  Prior to working for Stoughton Steel, I was fortunate enough to work for a culinary legend, Todd English.  Todd’s passion for food and life was contagious.  It was with Todd that I developed my deep understanding of and desire to make great pizza.

After reading pieces of Modernist Cuisine by Nathan Myhrvold, I was inspired to create a more efficient baking surface for the home cook.  At the plant I found an extra piece of ¼” A36 steel and brought it home.  According to Modernist Cuisine, steel is a more conductive cooking surface than a brick oven’s stone.  It can cook faster and more evenly at a lower temperature, resulting in a beautiful, thin, crispy crust.  I spent years with countless pans, pizza stones, gadgets and gear trying to perfect my pizzas in a home oven.  I just could not replicate that authentic, crisp wood-fired pizza crust that I had come to love and crave.  Who knew the answer was waiting for me in a pile of steel!

Our heavy duty Baking Steel is made of recycled steel and is virtually indestructible.  We have pre-seasoned the steel with an organic blend of oil so it arrives at your door ready to use.  It comes standard at 16 inches X 14 inches, fitting most conventional home ovens, as well as barbecue grill surfaces. Our Baking Steel heats evenly and produces what I think is the best pizza ever made at home.
