14" Square Baking Steel Conducts Heat better than a Pizza Stone
Stores more Heat Per Unit Volume
Stabilizes at a Lower Temperature
In a 500° F Oven, a Baking Steel will Stabilize at around 450° F due to the Steel's Radiative Properties
Two suggested methods for cooking with a pizza steel are:
Steel and stone: Place a steel baking plate with pizza on it on the bottom oven rack while positioning a pizza stone on the top rack a few inches above to achieve perfectly crisp crust. Radiant heat from the stone will help to brown the top crust and cook the toppings like the elevated ambient heat of a pizza oven.
Steel and broiler: Place pizza steel on a rack positioned directly below the broiler of your oven. The pizza steel will achieve a perfectly crisp crust, while direct heat from the broiler will brown the top crust and cook the toppings.
