Lodge Cast Iron Pizza Pan
Lodge Cast Iron Pizza Pan
Seattle Slice contributor Adam Lindsley waxes rhapsodic about this pan: "Rather than sacrifice size and risk slippage on the limited surface of an overturned skillet, just buy the Lodge cast iron pizza pan and you'll have all the room you need. I leave mine directly under the broiler until the surface reaches 700°F, then slide my pizza onto it with a wooden peel. After about three minutes, the pizza's bubbling and ready to eat. Easy!"
