Cleaning burnt flour on stone/steel in between pizzas?
« on: July 21, 2022, 09:52:17 AM »
Pizza night usually means I'm making 2-3 pizzas. My current setup is a Baking Steel in an electric home oven. I use semolina flour on the peel to help with launching. A lot of that flour burns on the Baking Steel so each successive pizza ends up with more burnt flour stuck to the bottom. How do you deal with this? I've considered buying a brush but I don't want to create a mess by just dumping all the burnt bits on the bottom of my oven.

Use less flour.

I agree with Craig but invariably, eventually, there will be something to clean up. I loosen with a steel spatula and use our central vac to remove it. A shop vac would work too.
