It's Pizza Night! Where's My Parchment Paper?

Oh the horrors!  It's Pizza Night and we ran out of parchment paper!  We tried to keep the peel floured up, but we still had some dough sticking issues.  We noticed sometimes there was too much flour on the dough and other times it was fine.  Our consistency sucked.  We were outside our comfort zone the whole time.

  • Plan ahead! There are two things to never run out of, Lump and parchment. There are substitutes for both, but you could be outside "your comfort zone". Lump, you can usually tell if your neighbors might have some, parchment is a different story, just go knock on a door and ask!

    Mr Flintstone, are you doing pizza on a small egg. I am looking for a pizza stone for my small egg. Not sure which way to go, did a lot of looking around today while we were shopping and couldn't find any stones around 10 or 11 inches.

    If you run out of parchment you can always use waxed paper - pretend that was written in the Internet sarcasm font.

    Call Tom at Ceramic Grill store. He has stones for the small. Got mine within 24 hours after ordered.

  • Has anyone found a source for really wide parchment, so you don't have to use two strips for a big pie?

  • @Doc_Eggerton the widest i've seen is 15", Costco. Are you looking for something wider?

    +1. I would look for a bakery supply store for a larger width. Most parchment is 15" to fit width-wise  on sheet pans. I was able to find these 16x24 sheets on the interwebs. I found up to 36" rolls, but they were on the art-supply section of Amazon for calligraphy/drawing. I don't know if that's food-safe.

    Just get a Super Peel and don't worry about the parchment paper!

    You can make and bake them on a pizza pan or cookie sheet.  After a few minutes, the dough is cooked enough to transfer to the stone.

  • Don't need no stinkin' parchment paper guys...........if the dough is right. I've done it twice so far, twice out of twice. Watch how much flour she adds.
