  • The whole pan is very strong actually, much more so than I imagined it to be when I first looked at it on the website - there's absolutely nothing flimsy about it and presumably that's the key to ensuring your pizza bases come out crisp and delicious
  • To really get the full benefit of using this pan you need to ensure your pizza isn't too bad as the base needs to fit inside the slightly raised rim, the base should be resting properly on the bottom of the pan otherwise the dimples aren't going to be doing the job properly and you may not get the professional finish you were after - also you may end up with a 'bend' to your pizza if you allow it to overhang which will definitely spoil the look

      My daughters all adore pizza and although it’s a fairly high fat food I do tend to indulge their cravings more often than I probably should, especially at the weekend when they’re settling down to watch a film in the evening.  I bought this 14″ pizza pan to help me create perfect pizzas for them, and a few months later it’s been such a useful item that I’m considering purchasing a second for when they have friends round so that I can cook two at one time!

      The pizza pan is made of aluminum which makes it pleasantly lightweight to use, the edge has been reinforced with galvanized steel so there’s absolutely no bending of the pan as you pick it up from the oven. The whole pan is very strong actually, much more so than I

      The pizza pan has lots of fairly deep dimples on the bottom which allows air to circulate around the pizza base; this gives a crisp base as any moisture evaporates during the cooking process, with the increased airflow helping to ‘air dry’ the doughy base as it cooks.  This never has the effect of making the base hard however and if you use the pan to cook a deeper based pizza the very edge will go crisp but the rest will remain as light and fluffy as it should be.  The majority of pizzas I cook are thin based as the ...


      • children prefer them to the deeper ones and these tend to cook perfectly with no burning at the edges - it has the added advantage of preventing that little damp spot you sometimes get in the centre of a homemade pizza base too, which can only be a good thing!

        The pan is suitable for cooking your own homemade pizzas, but you can also use it for ready made ones too as the principles of the cooking process remain the same.

        Cleaning the pizza pan is very easy, it’s not specifically a non-stick product but nothing tends to stick to the metal anyway. The only thing I struggle to remove occasionally is the grease from pepperoni if that happens to have dripped through to the base of the pan - this is easily dealt with by soaking it in hot soapy water, although it’s rare that this is necessary. 

        Overall I really think this is a worthwhile buy for anyone who regularly makes or cooks pizza - priced at $17 from the NordicWare website it’s not going to break the bank  and will vastly improve the quality of your pizza.
