"Black" Pizza Pans
« on: December 08, 2013, 03:14:40 PM »
We all know pizza cooks faster on a black pan than a shiny one. I bought mine at wally world shiny, and use has turned them dark and now they cook better. I did a search and I see people asking about where to buy black pizza pans, but what I want to know is , can I cause a plain shiny pan to blacken faster somehow. I have a few newer ones and they just don't cook as well until they turn dark from use. Maybe coat them with oil and flour and throw them on the grill for an hour or so? Any ideas?

I'v turned aluminum 1/2 sheet pans almost black with a few rounds of a light coating of shortening and baking.

The pan in this picture was shiny aluminum when I got it. http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,21991.msg223052.html#msg223052

It takes less than half an hour to turn the first pan into the second pan. Here's how I did it. (I didn't follow Craig's link, but I assume he did essentially the same thing I did.)
