People always ask me how to make the perfect pizza on Baking Steel. The technique I always use is the Broiler Method, which combines convection bake and the broiler to give your pizza the perfect color on top and a crispy crust.
- Place Baking Steel on the top rack of the oven and preheat on convection bake for one hour at 500 F.
- Launch pizza onto the center of the Baking Steel. Bake on convection for four minutes. Protip: Use your iphone timer!
- Give your pizza a spin and switch the dial to broil for two minutes. Be sure to watch your pizza carefully. I usually check it at a minute to make sure it's not getting too dark.
- Take your pizza out of the oven and enjoy!
I used a gas oven with a gas broiler, this technique works for both gas and electric. However, electric broilers have a mind of their own and will not likely start broiling right away. So timing may be extended when using electric ovens.
