OK, so I bought them. Now I have no idea how to use them. Same cornmeal on the peel then onto the screen? Same 550 degrees? Any help would be appreciated.[p]Thanks,[p]Kip

  • Kip,
    jUST ROLL THEM OUT ON SOME PARCHMENT PAPER OR WAX PAPER. OR SIMILAR MATERIAL . lAY THE SCREEN RIGHT ON TOP AND FLIP OVER. YOU DON'T NEED ANY CORNMEAL. PUT YOUR FIXINGS ON DOUGH AND PLACE THE SCREEN DIRECTLY ON YOUR PIZZA STONE

  • Kip,
    When you shape your pizza dough, you should be able to just plop it down onto the screen, build the pie and then pop it into the Egg. [p]TNW

    The Naked Whiz
  • Flyfish,
    I use the screen as a guide to help me in making a nice round dough crust.
    I spray the screen with a little Pam.
    Lay the dough on the screen and load it up with stuff and place on the pizza stone.

  • Kip,[p]I put cornmeal on the peel, form the pizza on the peel and slide it onto the stone. Let it cook for 6 - 8 minutes. If the crust is getting to where I want it but the toppings are not quite there yet, I lift the edge of the pizza and slide the screen under. This gets you a few extra minutes of cooking time so that the crust does not burn and the cheese gets a chance to melt.[p]Dan
