Baking Steel

In Pizza with Rosehill Sourdough, I recommend using a baking steel in your home oven to make certain styles of pizza. The baking steel has a higher thermal conductivity than pizza stones, so they are better to use in home ovens that can’t reach as high of temperatures as pizza ovens. The increased thermal conductivity helps to get heat into the pizza better than a pizza stone when at home oven temps. A pair of steels can help create a pseudo deck oven in your home oven, to replicate the ovens your favorite New York or Detroit Style pizza place uses. They also work as a great thermal battery in a home oven.
