Transporting Pizza
« on: February 02, 2005, 01:16:13 PM »
I was thinking about taking an already cooked pizza to a superbowl party.  It occurred to me that a Chicago style Deep Dish would transport better than any other pizza especially if left in the pan.  The place we are going has no cooking facilities.
How does everyone else transport pizza.

Hi Randy,  I transport my pizza with a plate...... from pan to plate then to my seat at the table hehe  ;D

Seriously though, that's a good question..... you could build a box I guess with some cardboard, if you are going to bring a few of 'om,
or wrap them all up in plastic wrap.

I just can't think of anything great that would do that.... it will be interesting to see what others have to offer.

Interesting question indeed.

I took 2 pizzas to a christmas party and i just took them on the screens that i cooked them on. This prevented a soggy bottom. To  keep them warm I made a 'tent' around each pizza using aluminum foil. They were still warm 30 minutes after i removed them from the oven.

LOL....OK, this raises a funny memory for me.

We had a block party a couple of years ago, and I planned on bringing some pizzas down the block.  I was known among all the neighbours for making delicious "New York Pizza."  But I too had no way to transport them.

So I went to the local Pizza Hut.  At the time, they had recently introduced their "Big New Yorker Pizza."  I went up to the girl working there, explained I needed to bring some homemade pizzas to a block party, and asked if I could buy three pizza boxes from her.  She grabbed the manager, and the manager said, "Sure, no problem."  I think I paid $1.00 apiece, or maybe they even gave them to me free, I can't remember now.  But they were the "Big New Yorker Pizza" boxes, which were the only ones large enough to accomodate my 16" pizzas.  I brought them home, obscured the Pizza Hut logo with a permanent marker, and wrote over it "Dave's Big New Yorker Pizza."  It was a hit!

Moral of the story--ask your local pizzeria to buy a couple of boxes ;)

Deep Dish I leave in the pan and cover with foil, everything else I go to a pizza shop and ask to buy a couple boxes.

hehe snowdy....

That link from foodservicedirect charges over $32 for a case of 16" pizza boxes....I think anyone who wants a couple of those could ask their local pizzeria, and buy them for much cheaper :)  Good thought though!

Deep dish pizzas I leave in the pan and cover with foil. NY style and thinner pizzas I will place on a screen, then place the screen and pizza on a pan. Then I loosely cover it with foil.
