Default Perforated Pizza Disk - for parties?

I would like my guests to be able to build their own pies but I am concerned about the sticking pizza problem.

Does anyone have experience with Perforated Pizza Disks


To allow guests to build a pizza on the disk, throw the whole thing in the oven and then move the pizza off the disk after the bottom has set.

Chip,

Our guests make their own but we have them use a ton of corn meal on the peel. We also try to keep them moving to prevent the dough from hydrating into the peel. Where are these sold, I might give one a try?

I do that all the time and I don't think you will have any problems at all doing it that way. I make a sourdough crust so I like it to set for a while after I stretch it out.

Les, I use an air bake pan and you can find them at Target and Wall-Mart and such.

Les,

I found them at

Pizza Supplies

They have a lot of other stuff. the thing I like about these is that they have no rim so easy on and off for the pie.

We get our guests to build the pizza on a tray/pan, oil the pan, spread dough, flip dough, build pizza.
Bake until the dough is firm, remove from tray and put on bricks to crisp, we rarely get a problem.

I looked at the mesh also, Do you remove the pizza from the mesh or leave it on for the whole cooking cycle?

And how do they hold up over time? They look a little flimsy.

we take the pizzas off as soon as they cook enough to slide off.
we have used them for over 300 pizzas so far and they look as good as new.
