Restaurant Equippers in Southfield Michigan sells steel Detroit Style Pizza Pans that are hands down the best. 8X10 costs $12 and 10X14 costs $12.50. They are unseasoned so you need give a few coats of Crisco before using them and you can never -- NEVER -- get them wet, but treat them right and they will make your dinner into a little slice of heaven.

Hey there, I just ordered two of these pans and can't wait to give them a try, question for you; how do you go about cleaning them if you can't get them wet?  I plan to season with Grape Seed oil when they arrive, maybe a thin coat, into the oven, another thin coat, into the oven, and then it's time to bake!  What do you think?

I tried using one of those porcelain enamel coated steel lasagna pans, and it worked well except the bottom stuck somewhat and I had to chisel it out with a spatula. Otherwise it came out nice and crispy.

Pretty much what I went through as well, had to chisel it out and it was good but certainly was not able to set on a rack and cut into squares.  Oh well, half the fun is wine and practice!  :)

2nd attempt using PizzaHog's recipe in post 199.  Turned out fantastic, couple things to nit pick and keep working on but something I would be fine serving to any of my friends/family.

This looks great. What was the bake time? Directly on a stone? oven temp?

Thank you very much.  It was about 18 minutes in at 475 degrees, on the bottom rack in the oven, no stone.

Turned out fantastic, achieved the crispiness throughout the entire crust that I did not achieve last time when I cooked for 15 minutes.  Caramelized crust was probably a minute past ideal but still tasted fantastic.  I'm thinking 17 minutes is going to be ideal for my oven.

Cooking in a new Lloyd Pan, and for this one used strictly Vermont Sharp White Cheddar around the edge, with Brick Cheese in the middle with a little of the cheddar mixed in as well.
