Cookie Sheets and Pizza Pans - Favorite Brands?

Not sure if I am in the right place but I am in need of new cookie sheets and pizza pans. What brands do you use and have good luck with?

I like plain aluminum half sheet pans and cookie sheets.

Right now I have AirBake cookie sheets and they are nice but sometimes a pain to clean since they cant be immersed in water. My pizza pans, I would be embarrassed to let anyone see!

We have 2 huge commercial pizza pans we bought at a restaurant supply place about 25 years ago. Love 'em and they have been USED. If they could talk.

I also have a pizza screen, also from a restaurant supply store.

Another way we cook pizza is on a "stone," which is a giant (about 14 inches in diameter) clay flowerpot underplate that I turn upside down, dust with cornmeal and use. Got it at the garden store.

Have a deep-dish pizza pan, too.

We make a variety of pizzas here. Can you tell?

Great ideas, thank you! We are in the beginning stages of making our own pizzas and they taste so much better and fresher! Do you have pizza recipes posted here?

For the last couple years I have been using baking sheets that I got at Sam's - a three pack for about $10.

They are heavy duty/restaurant quality and work for cookies, roasting veggies, baking chicken and chops etc. I love 'em!

Wow that was a great deal! I never thought about checking to see what our local Sam's has in stock.

I don't think I have, lovetocook07. I'll have to check, but there you can use your imagination and your taste buds to guide you to a wonderful pizza. Just think of what you like best in pizza and go from there.

We bought some American Metalcraft pans from a restaurant store.

Heavy weight and not too costly. We use the 14" pizza pans for most of out baking needs.

If you can find a Pampered Chef rep in your area, I strongly recommend their products. I use large bar pans for cookie sheets, baking chicken and a trillion other things. Clean up is a breeze once you get them seasoned and they are very forgiving when you leave things in the oven just a bit too long. They are nothing short of amazing in my view.

Oh...and I have no affiliation with Pampered Chef. Just a very satisfied customer.
