My husband likes to make pizza on Friday nights. Several years ago, we discovered that our favorite pizzeria achieved its crispy crust with a perforated metal pan underneath the pizza (delivered by mistake with our pizza!). We bought a similar pan and all was well until it began sticking to the crust at higher temperatures. I ordered two of these hoping that the non-stick Cuisinart pan would work and thinking to have an extra "just in case." My husband was delighted, and his recent pizzas have really benefited from this pan; the crust does not stick, and it is really crisp, even when he makes it a bit thicker.
