Pizza Screens?

I'm curious if many people are using a pizza screen?  If so, are you doing the entire cook on the screen, or removing the screen once the toppings are almost done?

    Do the whole cook on it. It still gives a crispy crust and allows the toppings more time to cook.

    ...and don't forget the main reason for the pizza screen is to rest a hot pizza on after cooking.   The screen keeps air under the hot pie and keep it from sweating and getting soggy before you eat it.   Handy item to have around.

  • I use them for the entire cook. Easy on easy off. Just dont press the dough into the screen too much or its not easy clean. Give em a try less than $10.

  • Pizza screens have been used since the early 60's and were patented by Marino Binelli who was from Dearborn, MI, my hometown.  My father and Uncle's were his first customer's.  Used for the entire cook they do an excellent job.  We used a lot of cornmeal back in the old days and the old Blodgett and Baker's Pride ovens would get very smokey from the burnt meal. You had to constantly sweep out the ovens and it was a mess at the end of a 12 hour day.  Marino had a vision and made a mint.  I still have a few stashed away as souvenirs.  I just use my stone now.

    Simple ingredients, amazing results!
