Baking With Steel Seen in the Boston Globe

"If you bought a Baking Steel to create restaurant-quality, Neapolitan pizza in your oven, you might wonder what else to do with the hulking 16-by-14-inch steel sheet that weighs 15 pounds. It heats up to temperatures past 700 degrees, turning out pizza in minutes with a perfectly charred, crackly crust as if it were baked in a wood-fired oven

Legendary English Muffin Recipe

Legendary English Muffin Recipe

I grew up devouring English muffins; I have in no shame in confessing that at a certain time in my life, I could eat an entire package over the weekend. But as my palate has become refined, the commercial varieties have seemed floppy, flavorless, and overall uninviting. Not the type of stuff I want my kids eating. So we went to work developing a legendary English muffin recipe.

The Easiest Way to Make Kick-Ass Ciabatta Bread

The Easiest Way to Make Kick-Ass Ciabatta Bread

Let me explain...I've made pizza dough a minimum of two times per week over the past four years. Most of it is used for, you guessed it - pizza!  But often times I have leftover dough, which sits in my fridge for literally days.  Even though I haven't officially labeled an expiration date on the dough, it does "lose" its vigor after day 7.

Baking Steel Makes Alton Brown's Pizza Dough Even Better

Baking Steel Makes Alton Brown's Pizza Dough Even Better

Alton Brown's pizza dough recipe has been on my radar for about 3 years.  His recipe is a 65% hydration level, which is pretty close to what we have been doing at the Baking Steel Test Kitchen, though we are closer to 70% hydration.  He adds a little bit of sugar, I'm guessing to help with the browning, and a heap of yeast, 9 grams to be exact.  Currently, we are using about 1/10 of the amount of yeast in our dough, so this was going to be a very cool test!  After mixing the ingredients, the dough goes straight into the refrigerator for 24 hours.

How To Make The Best Damn Pizza Sauce

How To Make The Best Damn Pizza Sauce

A killer pizza sauce is the backbone of a stellar pizza.  It can make or break your pie and is often way over thought. At Baking Steel, we use a very simple, quick-process sauce. It literally takes about 2 minutes to make and the only equipment required is a blender/food processor.  No more bubbling pots simmering in your kitchen for hours. Keep this in mind, the pizza sauce is going to cook in the oven on the pizza, which is just enough time to get some heat while not losing any tomato freshness.
