Create Neapolitan style pizza or artisan breads right at home, without investing in a brick oven. Create the crust you crave.

While reading an article in the Wall Street Journal, I had my “AH-HA” moment when I realized I could combine my love of cooking with my business in manufacturing. I stumbled upon an article reviewing Nathan Myhrvold’s 2400 page book titled Modernist Cuisine: The Art & Science of Cooking. The article posed a problem, “you love Neapolitan style pizza, but you don’t want to invest in a brick oven.” With my experience studying Culinary Arts and working under Chef Todd English, I had also found this to be true. 

To my amazement the article suggested that readers make their own pizza stone out of a steel sheet. I grabbed a ¼” piece of scrap steel from Stoughton Steel, brought it home that week and tried it out. I was blown away by the results. Baking the pizza on the scrap steel created the best quality pizza I had ever made at home!

Who would have thought that after 20 years of making pizza at home for family and friends and working with steel every day, the solution for creating the perfect pizza was right under my nose all along.

We have been cooking up a storm over the past 6 months on our Baking Steel, working out the details of our first production run this September. We are so grateful for everyone that has offered their help and expertise along the way.  

Our Kickstarter goal is to raise $3,000, which will be spent on material and labor for our first production run. In exchange for your funding, we are offering exciting rewards, fun t-shirts and of course an opportunity to get your hands on our first production run of Baking Steels.

Baking Steel Limited Edition will offer our first 100 customers an imprint of No. 01-100.  Baking Steel Limited Edition is for Kickstarter only.

Fun Steel Facts: When you buy Steel, you're always buying recycled.  

We are so thrilled that our Baking Steel is naturally a Green product.  

Thank you for reading and if you pledge, I thank you.  

Our Baking Steel will be proudly made in Hanover, Massachusetts.
