While I posted this offer I haven't actually had one of these in years

I make my own which is pretty time consuming but rewarding. I cook it on a thick piece of steel, rather than a stone.

I'm amazed at how little cheese these frozen pizza's have and my local Pizza Hut and Dominos over the years have greatly cut back on their toppings to make more profit.


According to a reputable portion topping guide, a 12" pizza could contain anywhere from 113g (4oz) to 212g (7.5oz) of cheese.

If you go by the ingredients of these pizza's the the pepperoni plus only uses 83.85g of mozzarella! I think they're 12"?

The four cheese has 126grams of cheese which explains why it feels much more like eating a proper pizza than the others.

Love these pizzas, hands down beat pizza hut or dominos any day for me.
PizzaTheHuttWhat steel do you use?

I have 2x 13" traditional stones and use one for the pizza and one above the pizza which helps compensate for the fact i am using a regular fan oven. After thinking about a steel for getting more heat under the base i tried using one stone placed on top of the other which gave be a slightly better charring, but not as much as i see folks get using steel.


I only ask as getting a piece of stainless steel cut to size seems bloody expensive! I have tried calling a few places for quotes! Any recomendations would be good.

Cheers
And yes the 4 cheese variant of this pizza is the way to go! more cheese to go with half a punnet of butter fried mushrooms! Hmmmmmm!!
BBQ Sauce on a pizza, ugh no! Their tomato sauce is the best on shop pizzas though

People use regular mild steel not stainless as it has better heat conductivity or something. You just season it extremely lightly with oil and put it in the oven. It forms a coating that will stop it rusting and act as a non stick coating. The problem with this type of steel, is they can be very grubby.

I bought mine online from steelpartsuk.com/ which is probably more expensive . I had mine cut to a circle, 3/8" up to 400mm (under 16") I think it was £45 delivered not cheap!

steelpartsuk.com/pro…zed

Cutting to size is included in the cost. I went for 380mm because my oven is a range oven with 2 separate smaller width ovens.

They cleaned it up for me, sanded off any mill scale (though harmless I believe) it was taken down to he bare metal which means it has no protection so can rust. So as soon I got it, I seasoned it LIGHTLY with vegetable oil.


It wasn't cheap but I gave up trying to find what I wanted elsehwere. First I tried a blacksmith, which was nearly as expensive because I wanted it to cut to a certain size and they don't have high tech machinery it cost a lot.
