Perfect Pizza Using Baking Steel Broiler Method

Perfect Pizza Using Baking Steel Broiler Method

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.


  1. Place Baking Steel on the top rack of the oven and preheat on convection bake for one hour at 500 F.
  2. Launch pizza onto the center of the Baking Steel. Bake on convection for four minutes.  Protip: Use your iphone timer!
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
