1/4" thick Pizza Steel (12 5/8") fits Camp Chef PZ30 Pizza Oven or use in conventional oven
The Backyard Life Gear Pizza Steel for the Camp Chef PZ30 Artisan Pizza Oven (Sidekick Pizza Oven) or conventional oven is made from 1/4 inch thick cold rolled steel and is 12 5/8 inches square.
Steel is a fantastic conductor of heat and can help you get that pizzeria style crust you've been seeking!
To install the pizza steel in your Camp Chef PZ30 Artisan Pizza Oven, simply remove the metal brackets holding the pizza stone in place with a screwdriver, pull the pizza stone out and replace it with the pizza steel. Reinstall the metal brackets and get cooking.
The baking steel comes unseasoned and needs to be seasoned before use.
Seasoning Instructions: You’ll need a neutral vegetable oil (flaxseed oil, vegetable oil, soybean oil, etc.) or a product like Crisbee or Buzzy Waxx. You’ll also need some paper towels or a clean rag and tongs to apply it.
Step 1: Wash your item with hot, soapy water. This will remove any oils or dust from manufacturing and shipping.
Step 2: Preheat your item to around 400 degrees (F). You can do this by starting a batch of charcoal and spreading it evenly on the charcoal grate. Use the bottom and dome vent to adjust the temperature of the grill.
Step 3: Apply a very thin layer of your seasoning oil/seasoning product using the paper towels or rag and tongs. Let this oil burn into the metal until it stops smoking. This usually takes 15-20 minutes.
Step 4: Repeat step 3 at least 2 more times. The more coats the better. Over time, you will develop a dark, shiny coating.
