Focaccia must be one of my favorite breads of all time. I didn't know too much about it until I went to culinary school at the CIA and took fondly to Italian Cuisine. It is such a simple bread yet so versatile. It can be used simply as just great bread for the table, to slap a sandwich or panini together, to even great pizza.

This is not going to be your average Baking Steel Blog Post for the week. The sun is coming out. The warmth is here (kinda) and we are all happy and giddy inside. This can only mean one thing. ICE CREAM! But not just any type of ice cream. Ice cream made on a Baking Steel Griddle.
Well we have been seeing lots and lots of this wonderful deli called Katz's in Brooklyn, NY. If you haven't heard of it, you've probably been living under a rock or grew up in a coconut. The staple of the Lower East Side since 1888 (yes! 1888), Katz's has been doing their deli thing the right way for some time now. Generations of family through, some of the best deli sandwiches are pumped out on a daily basis out of this old school shop.
WEEK 54!!!! How exciting! It's getting warm out there now and we are very excited. All of the fresh produce for our pizzas and firing up or grills outside to cook them on. You guys keep blowing us away with your pizzas. Practice makes perfect. Keep up the good work everyone and don't forget to use #bakingsteel to get featured on our weekly Best of Baking Steel Blog!
Last week we were looking for a little breakfast sandwich inspiration for our Baking Steel Mini giveaway. We asked for you to give us some ideas to complete a delicious breakfast. The response from everyone was not normal - it was just amazing. Thank you.
I need to continue to remind myself that not every pizza needs to have cheese. I am not proud, but i likely eat more pizza than any other human on earth. Fresh chef craig may be a close second. Just because it’s pizza, doesn’t mean it needs cheese.

Today I am going to share a homemade tomato sauce secret. Its perfect on top of a pizza and likely the easiest thing you will ever do in preparation for pizza night. If you are like me, you want to bite into your pizza and taste the freshness of tomatoes. Let's not over think this. The secret in creating that robust tomato flavor is to do absolutely nothing.
Let me set the scene....Baking Steel Test Kitchen, early morning breakfast time after one too many glasses of wine the night before. I'm searching the fridge to build a "pick me up" breakfast sandwich. I've got eggs frying and Food for Life 7 Sprouted Grains toasting on my Baking Steel Mini-good start, right?!
Well, we made it. One year of the Best of Baking Steel Blog! Feeling very humbled today. There are 8,000 #bakingsteel's out in the world and everyone is beautiful in there own way.

We are so thrilled to have teamed up with Boston Winery. We stopped by earlier this week for a visit, and we brought pizza dough's. This amazing facility is not only rustic and beautiful, it's furnished with a small open kitchen with killer pizza oven's. Come join us on April 22nd for an open house (from 3 - 8PM) We'll be slinging pizza while the Boston Winery will give you a taste of some of their favorite wines. It will be an epic evening....
This time I decided to take the lonely croissant and make it my source of inspiration! Fast forward back to the test kitchen...lonely croissant let me introduce you to your new best friend, the Baking Steel Mini.
Again, continue using #bakingsteel and encourage your friends to do the same. I'm sure they'll do anything for your pizza anyways.
Today we are sharing a "top secret" two-steel method, which results in kick ass, drool worthy pizzas, fast! (FYI: this powerful and amazing idea came from this guy, Tony Gemignani. You need to read this book.) How fast do you ask....we're talking 4-minutes fast! By following these simple steps, you'll be creating homemade pizzas as good as anywhere in the world.
Sunday morning rituals-we all have them, we all love them!
I love breakfast pizza and I love eggs! So, today I'm sharing my 5 egg pizza recipe with you. You're going to need a fork and knife for this one, it's a little bit messy. Just do it for the love of breakfast and all things pizza!
Remember back to when you were a kid...you'd play outside all day and mom would bring out a tray of pb&j to fuel the neighborhood's all day play date. Today we are making a pb&j that you don't need to worry about sharing with the kids on your block-you are going to want to save this one for yourself. In this case, pb&j equals pineapple, bacon and jalapeño on pizza and it packs a lot of heat, and not just Baking Steel heat.
