A Spin On Gluten Free Pizza Dough

A Spin On Gluten Free Pizza Dough

It seems more and more often I am being asked about "gluten-free" pizza dough.  Gluten is the protein in wheat, rye and barley, that can commonly occur in pasta, bread, beer and many other processed foods containing these grains.

Super Easy Meatball and Cheese Calzone

Super Easy Meatball and Cheese Calzone

One of my favorite lunches growing up was a meatball sub.  Served on a sub roll with huge chunks of meatballs, tomato sauce and all that ooey-gooey, melted cheese, what's not to like?! I'll let you in on a little secret:  I always added a special ingredient to these sandwiches.  As a kid, I had a HUGE addiction to Vlasic Dill Pickles

Classic White Pizza Recipe

Classic White Pizza Recipe

During my journey with Baking Steel, I've come to learn that "over-planning" can kill a pizza.  Meticulously planned ingredient lists create a lot of hype to live up to and put a lot of pressure on home cooks.  My favorite pizzas are usually a result of spontaneity.  I mean, you have your pizza dough and you know your making pizza, you just don't know what kind. So you open up your fridge and let what's there be your guide.  Free your mind and the rest will follow, right?!

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.

Sous vide eggs benedict pizza is a fresh twist on a breakfast classic.  We're using the traditional components, such as Hollandaise Sauce, but instead of poached eggs, we are using eggs cooked in a sous vide bath. The Canadian Bacon was seared on the Mini, and our "english muffin" is actually a 250-gram size pizza dough.  Take a break from the norm this weekend!  Our sous vide eggs bendict pizza is perfect for any Sunday morning brunch.  Happy Eating!

The Best Way To Order Take-Out Pizza For a Crowd

The Best Way To Order Take-Out Pizza For a Crowd

Today we are talking take-out pizza!  I Know what you are thinking, why is Baking Steel talking take-out pizza?  Homemade pizza is our business and it's hands down, the best!  But sometimes in a pinch, you need to order pizza take-out, especially for a crowd. It's easy, quick and doesn't make a big mes!  But if your experience with take-out is anything like mine, by the time you get your pizza home, it's cold and soggy (from steaming in that cardboard box).  Not exactly dream pizza!

New and Improved English Muffin Recipe

New and Improved English Muffin Recipe

With our recipe, we struggled a bit with cook time and the resulting product.  The English Muffins would cook for about 9 minutes per side or 18 minutes in total.  They were good, but with all that cook time, they would come out a little hard and/or dry. Add an additional 3-4minutes in a toaster, and zip zap, any remaining "moisture" was gone! These muffins were moving in the right direction, but they were not ready for prime time.

Fly Without a Safety Net!  Peanut Butter Cookies On Steel...

Yesterday morning I was hanging in the Baking Steel test kitchen with my oldest son.  I could tell he was on a mission, fishing for something good to eat....turns out, he wanted cookies.  So, we took to the Internet in search of a cookie that would satisfy his sweet tooth.  It seemed that peanut butter cookies would fit the bill.  We found a recipe that looked like a winner on Sally's Bake Blog-it promised soft, classic peanut butter cookies with minimal effort on our part. Done!

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.
