      • Once dough is thawed and soft, gently press it to the edges of the pan .

Pizza Pan Care Guide

About Your Pan

  • Your kit includes a specialty Detroit-style pizza pan.
  • Please note the pan has a seasoned coating and as it is being shipped together with refrigerated ingredients this can cause some oxidation/ blemishes̤ DO NOT use soap and water to clean the pan; instead, use salt and oil as you would with iron cookware.
  • These specialty pans are meant to be seasoned by use
  • They will get better with time, like a cast iron skillet

When Your Pan Arrives
  • STEP 1: If need be, wipe pan clean of any blemishes that may have resulted from oxidation during transit.
  • STEP 2: Gently scrub the pan with the coarse side of a dry sponge. This is a dry scrub with no water! DO NOT USE ANY WATER ON PIZZA PANS as this will cause rust̤
  • STEP 3: Add a small amount (less than a tsp) of Kosher Salt to the pizza pan.
    • Using a paper towel, rub salt gently into the pan to absorb excess grease or blemishes.
    • Wipe clean of salt. DO NOT USE WATER ON PIZZA PAN but dry paper towel instead.
  • STEP 4: Add a small amount of canola or similar vegetable oil (1 T) and rub into the entire pan as evenly as possible.
    • This oil coating will act to “season” your pizza pan for future use while baking your pizza. Each use will further the pan’s seasoning, similar to a cast iron skillet. Once wiped clear of excess oil, the pan will be ready for fresh dough!

To Clean Your Pan
  • STEP 1: After removing pizza from pan, wipe clean of any crumbs or particulates
  • STEP 2: Keep pizza pan in a dry place separate from other dishes to prevent oxidation
  • STEP 3: Repeat process above of gentle dry scrub (you may only need the salt if there is a lot of residue, otherwise this step can be sometimes omitted), wipe with dry paper towel; coat with oil finish
