Who is This Pizza Screen For?

The American Metalcraft Rectangular Pizza Baking Screen is for anyone that enjoys making foods that go beyond pizza. The best part? The holes designed within the pan, give your food a greater circulation of air and heat retention. This, in turn, leads to perfectly crisp crusts. The rectangular shape also makes it perfect for baking breadsticks or warming up buns.

Why Should You Buy the American Metalcraft Pizza Screen?

The American Metalcraft Pizza Screen bakes pies evenly every time (homemade or frozen). The aluminum mesh pan allows air to circulate underneath the crust leading to a crispier crust and faster cooking times. 

You should also invest in this baking screen if you’re looking for a low-maintenance tool. The construction is sturdy, solid, and resists scratching, dents, and rust. We’ve only had it for a few weeks, but long-term users report their baking screen looks (and works) just as good as when they first bought it.

We will say that the shape is unique. If you’re looking for a round aluminum pan, consider the New Star Foodservice Screen. The American Metalcraft is often used within commercial pizza ovens to create family-sized rectangular pizzas. It’s a high-quality aluminum screen you’ll be able to reuse time and time again.

Our Verdict

The American Metalcraft Pizza Screen is one of the best rectangular baking screens we’ve tried. Its unique shape is great for pizzas, pastries, bread, and desserts. For ultimate longevity, make sure to hand wash as opposed to running it through your dishwasher.
