PIZZA SCREENS
« on: August 20, 2003, 01:03:04 PM »
Has anyone tried using a pizza screen instead of a regular pan or stone?  I see Pizza Hut uses them for their thin pizzas.  I've ordered one and will post the results soon.

I use pizza screens for my New York Pizza.  They also make great screens for draining french-fries or other such stuff.
And reheating all types of pizza straight from the freezer.

Randy - curious if you prefer the screen over the stone and is there a big difference in texture, etc?  

I use a stone and like it alot, but will try a screen shortly.

I would not say I prefer the screen over the stone except during the summer.  My wife does prefer the screen because of the hard texture produced by the stone.  

I put my screen on the lowest rack in the oven with the stone removed. Yes the crust is crisp but not quite as crisp as using a stone.  During this hot weather you will appreciate the screens since there is not a heat up time like a stone.  Another note, I only use the screens on the New York Style.

I think you will enjoy your screen.

I use stones, screens, and pans depending on all sorts of factor.

Like Randy said I don't think one is better, but each has its pros and cons.
