Do you want to make and eat the best pizza of your life, right in your own home?
Maybe you remember us from our Original Kickstarter? At Baking Steel, one of our key goals is helping you create “the crust you crave” at home. Our Baking Steel appliance will help you to attain the perfect, restaurant-caliber, crispy, crust texture. But, for the most incredible flavor experience, you’ve got to have the perfect dough.
Our 72-hour dough is the ultimate component for pizza crust perfection. Made using only Organic ingredients, this legendary dough recipe is the result of much experimentation, trial/error, and many, many pounds of flour. An extended ferment time of 72 hours allows for optimum flavor and texture, yielding a crust unlike anything you’ve ever tasted.
***Sidenote: With minimal amount of yeast used and long fermentation time, the dough/pizza is so much easier to digest than most commercially made doughs/pizzas.***
The catch? It takes time: this days-long fermenting period is necessary to give it the perfect texture, “chew”, and of course, flavor.
We get it! For many people, the idea of starting dough on Tuesday for pizza on Friday can seem tedious, or will just simply slip their minds.
We get it! You want the perfect pizza, but life and time constraints get in the way.
The solution? Our new 72-hour dough delivery service! Now, you can have batches of our 72-hour dough delivered to your door, so that you can make restaurant-quality pizza at home, on your Baking Steel. When you order, you’ll receive 8 perfect portions of pizza dough, delivered at their peak texture and flavor. The dough is shipped frozen and needs to be used, refrigerated or frozen as soon as possible.
For best results, use the dough within 30 days.

About the Baking Steel
Offering our 72-hour dough for delivery is a natural progression for the Baking Steel brand. The Baking Steel itself is a Kickstarter success story, offering home cooks a way to make restaurant-caliber dishes at home.
The Baking Steel is a baking stone made from ultra-conductive steel. Inspired by Modernist Cuisine, the Baking Steel is more conductive cooking surface than stone and stores up to 18 times more energy than a traditional baking stone. Because of that conductivity, it cooks faster and more evenly at a lower temperature, resulting in a beautiful, thin, crispy crust.
Risks and challenges
With a successful Kickstarter campaign (BakingSteel) under our belt, we're excited and confident to tackle this new product.
Here's what we've already done to set us up for success:
-Successfully run and continue to run an e-commerce platform
-Beta tested dough transport and storage
-Eaten hundreds of pizza's made with our 72 hour dough
-Made this dough is LARGE quantities
-Troubleshooted worst case scenarios
Here's the challenging stuff:
Shipping delays - this would be a worst-case scenario. We've never been late on delivery, though, and we will do whatever it takes to deliver on time as promised.
Being a time sensitive shipment, we need to knock the 2-day shipping out of the park. Luckily we partnered with shippings companies to assure us the 2 day delivery to the country. We've delivered tens of thousands of packages around the country so we know all about the logistics. We will be shipping on Tuesday's to ensure pizza night on Friday is a success.
If we're heavily over-funded, we'll make sure that communication with backers stays current and transparent so that no one feels lost in the crowd.
The Kickstarter community means A LOT to us and we are very proud of our Brand and customers. We are very excited to get this brand moving!
The money we raise on this campaign will be used to pay for the labor and materials to get these packages out in a timely manner.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
