Seasoning deep dish pizza stone

I put a thin layer of lard and baked it 475 until it stopped smoking. I went through this process three times. My first bake slid out. The only problem I had was I didn't start with enough though to make a deep dish pizza

    I never preseasoned mine, maybe that is why it stuck.  It was good, but haven't done pizza on the egg in a long time.  Pie looks good.

    I don't have a pan like that, just a 9" non-stick steel cake pan (that works great, btw). I posted a thread here 2-3 years ago that might help with Chicago Deep Dish. One thing I linked to was an excellent dough recipe specific to the size pan you are using, from 8-14". I've never had a pie from Lou Malnati's in Chicago, but I'm told this recipe makes a similar dough. Four minutes to make the dough, under 2 hours start to finish, from dough to assembly to baking to eating pizza...2 hours! Easiest, quickest pizza you will ever make! And one of the tastiest!

    Anyway, bunch of people here tried it and everyone seemed to like. Couple even used the pan you have as I recall. Take a look...

    Welcome to the forum!

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!
