TAG | Pizza
Cooking a pizza by starting it off on a stinking hot cast iron crepe pan to get the base nice and crisp then finishing off in the oven.
This is a method I saw Heston Blumenthal do.
I heated the oven/grill combo to the highest setting.
I put my cast iron skillet on the hob on high.
I prepared the pizza on baking paper.
Turn the pan upside down. Transfer the pizza over. Bung in the oven for 4-5 minutes.
I’m continuing my experiments and this time used a pizza crisper. It says not to put it on direct heat but it only cost 89p so I thought – Stuff It! 😀
I had some Fajita sauce so I thought i’d do a mexican pizza.
I bought a pizza tray from Morrison’s. It says not to use it on direct heat but it was only 89p.
This started out as an experiment to see how it would turn out.
I used a gas BBQ
Toppins were tomato sauce, mozzerella and pepperoni.
I put the baking tray over the middle section of the BBQ.
It was cooked with the lid down to keep the heat in.
I lifted the lid every minute or so to check on the progress.
You need to keep an eye on it so that the base doesn’t burn.
It was quite nice.
