While pizza is loved by many, fans of the food often have particular tastes when it comes to things like the crispness of the dough or the thickness of the crust. We have a well-rounded selection of cast iron pizza pans that should appeal to almost every pie-lover out there and can help you achieve that perfect pie.
Those looking to recreate an authentic pizza parlor experience will like the Outset 76612. Its large forged handles, oblong shape, and lip-less side make it easy to move in and out of your oven, and slip the pizza onto a serving stone or plate when ready — speaking of which, we removed the Patina Premium since its fully edgeless design resembled a stone more than a true pan and was difficult to handle.
If you love making personal pizzas or just appetizer-size ones, the Lodge 17L9OG3, at ten inches in diameter, is just right. When you are craving something heftier, like a deep-dish, the AmazonBasics S070 might come in use as its high lip can accommodate a high-rising dough.
Nobody wants to lose precious ingredients to the pan, which is another reason we like the AmazonBasics S070 — its round ridges help it release your finished pie with ease, though they can make it a little more difficult to clean. The Pizzacraft PC0300 also has some good non-stick properties, but is much less hassle to clean afterwards.
The Williams Sonoma 12-Inch The actual cooking surface of this model is 10 inches, making it just right for a small pie-for-one. Its sloped rim makes it simple to slide the pizza onto your cutting surface, and its long handle keeps your palms safely away from the heated area when moving it around. Suitable for the stove, oven, or grill, it's pre-seasoned and ready for use. williams-sonoma.com
