Purchasing This Pizza Screen - PLEASE ADVISE
« on: June 24, 2009, 03:57:48 AM »
Hi Guys

After much heart ache and pain as well as thorough searching I have finally managed to locate a supplier of Pizza Screens.

They have sent me a picture of what the screen look like.
I have attached it here.
They say it is perforated.
It is 300mm

I know the pic is small and that is the only pic that they had.
Please advise on whether it will be well suited for making of the Pappa Johns Pizza which I have been miserably failing on every attempt. Pete-ezza, please do advise as you know of all my attempts at cloning a Pappa Johns Pizza

Also if you require any further info on the screen please let me know and I will pose those questions to the supplier.

Thanks

PizzaManic,

What you have shown is a pizza screen and you should be able to use it. However, at 300 mm, the maximum size pizza you can bake on that screen is just under 12". You might inquire if the supplier has a larger size--one that can accommodate a 14" pizza (or even larger if you want to use the screen in the future for other, larger sized pizzas).

I purchased mine from Zesco. Great selection and good prices.

When baking, follow directions.  When cooking, go by your own taste.

Hi Pete
Thanks for the response.

I will have to check with the supplier on whether larger screens are available.
For now I am extremely excited as these screens are hard to find than gold here in SA.

Thanks again
Regards

I order from here.

They have screens from 7" to 18".

Cass,

The site you referenced is a good one but PizzaManic is in South Africa.
