What is pizza paper made out of?
« on: January 15, 2016, 05:12:43 PM »
I've seen pizza joints that put their to-go pizzas in a box, but before putting the pizza in, they take a round piece of paper and put that down as a liner in the bottom of the box.  Anyone know what that paper is?  Will it withstand high temperatures?

More often than not, I cut a piece of parchment paper into a circle, put that on the peel, and prepare the pizza on it.  Then I slide the whole thing, paper and all, into the oven.  I've been having great success with this.  No problems with the dough sticking to the peel, and it retains its size and shape.   I can land a 16" pizza on top of a 16" stone. 

I was thinking that if this professional pizza paper could take the heat, it would save me from having to cut rolls of parchment paper into rounds.
