Olive Oil in the bottom of the pan for Grandma and Detroit style
« on: February 11, 2018, 09:01:12 AM »
Hey All,
I have recently been using the pizza bible recipes for the Detroit style and the grandma. Both recipes have you add olive oil to the bottom of the pan, and then bake at 500 degrees, however the smoke point of olive oil is in the 300's, not only do I smoke out my house but I also burn the bottom of the pizza. How does everyone else oil the their pans?

I use peanut oil just like I do for my PH Pan Pizza as I don't like the taste of stuff fried in olive oil, pizza crust included.

I often make the LB Sicilian Pie in the Bible.  I use olive oil and bake at 450 degrees .  I use a steel pan not aluminum . I bake on the middle rack and never have any smoke using extra virgin olive oil.  You could try grape seed oil that won't burn but I think peanut oil tastes like peanuts   LOL not my cup of pie

I use olive oil in the pan which is put on a steel at 480-490.  I estimate that I use about a tablespoon and smear it all over the inside with some folded wax paper.

How long is your bake time?  I've never seen a whiff of smoke.  You might check your brand of olive oil as well. https://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=48527.msg486909#msg486909

I got my first one on Amazon for double the price I paid at Restaurant Depot.  At RD it is 14 dollars.  12 x 18  as per the bible  I don't use  stones  but I put a metal pan above the Pie on the next rack to direct heat back down .   I haven't made the other ones you made but the LB is a killer.  I used the starter version.

3pedals,

The smoke point of refined olive oil is well into the 400s.  Why not try that?
