Pizza Screens
« on: November 04, 2014, 04:58:18 PM »
Anyone out there making their own pizza screens at all?

I cut a woven wire cloth material - stainless steel - www.bwire.com into a circle using aviation snips and put a tin binder around the outside.  Really, it was quite simple and I am surprised more people do not do this.  I did it so easily, I would be willing to start selling custom sizes if anyone is interested in stainless steel woven wire pizza screens.  I will post a pic of my work shortly.

I can't wait to see your work.  I think the reason may be that at any restaurant supply store screens of 12-14 inches are under $2.00.  Maybe $4.00 for a 18-20 incher.  If one didn't have the snips or knowledge of how to bind over the rough edge (like me) it might be cost prohibitive.  But, no doubt a fun DIY project. Look forward to your posts.
Cheers,
Don

I would like to see them.  Screens are not wire, they expanded aluminum, but I don't see any reason SS wire would not work.  Cost is a factor, less than $4.00 for any size.  I might be interested in a sheet sized rectangle one though.
