I LOVE bread! Every time I head over to Whole Foods, my carriage auto pilots it's way to the fresh bread aisle. I am particularly fond of the baguettes from Iggys..I can't keep my hands off! It's more often than not that I grab a fresh baguette and throw it in my cart. Never on my list, yet almost always finding its way back to the test kitchen.
Today though, I actually have a plan. The fridge is still packed with mis en place from last night's pizza class. So I'm going to grab a loaf, slice it up and shred some cheese. Baguettes make an extraordinary base for pizza!
This technique is quite simple. Slice the bread, place the slices on a sheet tray. You may want to give them a little press with your fingers, just enough to give the toppings a little better landing area. Then, simply top like you would any other pizza. Remember less is more!
After pre-heating the baking steel at 400 F for about 30 minutes, you can place the sheet tray directly on top. Bake for 5 or 6 minutes, remove and eat! And next time your shopping at Whole Foods, think "time to create some baguette pizza love with Baking Steel.
