Got my cutter pans!
« on: November 28, 2019, 06:01:19 PM »
Iím going to try a Chicago thin in these puppies in the next few days. They are by Lloyd pans. Seem very well made!

I start my Chicago thins on those pans, then finish on stone (in my Blackstone). They turn out great.

Awesome. You put the pan on a stone though?  Not directly on the rack right?

Iíve had terrific bakes without a stone with these pans, as well as my square blue steel pans.

Jonas knows. And you don't have to wait on pre heating a stone. 🤑

Do you put the cutter pans on a stone still?  Or directly on the rack?

What's the purpose of a cutter pan for Chicago thin?  I've never seen a need.

I actually havenít used them yet but Iím one of those curious types that has to try each technique out.

Chicago Bob or any of yíall - whatís your take on cutter pans vs directly on a stone. Or maybe vs a screen?

   Besides not having to wait $ for stone to preheat....

a cutter pan has a small lip on the outer edge which your dough lays on at a 90 degree angle... that "lip" of dough cooks up into an enjoyable piece of extra nice, nice!  🤗

Plus, the whole bottom of your dough just cooks differently in the pan vs the stone.
I think the style all depends on what you grew up on/prefer. There is not one better than the other IMHO.  :pizza:

I have some heavy, well-seasoned ones, and ^^^ this is the truth.  I could *not* get the dough to cook correctly.  Way too blonde.

True enough.  Who are the thin-in-the-pan purveyors?  HRI barely counts as thin, and Aurelios is the only other I can think of.  I am sure there are others, but all of the mom-n-pops shops by me were slinging pies from the peel to the stone without such a crutch.

Originally from the far West suburbs, Aurora, and back in the 70s when I worked in pizzerias every joint in town used pans.  :pizza:

Yes, though some people put the pan on a stone, OR you can start in the pan and then finish it on the stone.  I've seen all three approaches work successfully.

The advantage of using a cutter pan is that you don't need to pre heat a stone. $.
Also, it gives a different bake.... As I've said.

Must be a far Westside thing then?  No one on the Southside except Aurelio's used pans.

Jonas- Is there a trick to getting a crispy bottom crust while keeping the pizza in the pan the entire time?  I tried out one of those cutter pans this weekend and the bottom didnít cook very well.  I had to take it out and put it on the steel, which then came out nice.
