The Elusive Home Pizza (TEHP) is something I’ve chased. Like a pizza-shaped rabbit down a greasy rabbit hole, anytime I think I’ve nabbed it, the rabbit slips from my grip. My greasy pizza paws clawing at nothing.
But TEHP is important—it’s 2013 and getting a bubbly, crisp, airy, pizza shouldn’t be impossible. Hopefully, The Pizza Grate is the missing link between your oven and a perfect pie.
So how does it work?
Well, I guess this grate does a few things differently than other grates and stones.
- The Pizza Grate is aluminum, which retains heat better than most metals. So I’m told. I’m not metalologist.
- The holes in The Grate allow steam to escape from the bottom of the pizza, meaning your crust is free of moisture that it would otherwise absorb.
- No rusting - and easy to clean. My pizza stone is actually in quite a hideous state as we speak.
- You can cook a chicken on it, which I guess you would then put on top of a pizza.
Pretty neat stuff. I know I’ve almost burned the house down trying to get my oven hot enough to produce TEHP. And, I don’t have a stock of bricks lying around to construct my own pizza oven. This seems like something that can bring The Elusive Home Pizza to the masses.
