Adventures in pizza at Blake and Bull HQ!

At Blake and Bull HQ we tested our heavy duty baking trayswith pizza, like locusts the Blake and Bull men devoured the results, so I think it was a winner! 

Here is our top tip if you run a busy home, and need to produce a speedy supper after the children's school run, scout pick up, ballet lesson, & piano exam!!

Pop the trays in the roasting oven to pre-heat in advance. Have your pizzas ready for when you and your brood come home. On your return from being a parent taxi you can slide your supper right in and know that it will be done in minutes. 😀

We tested 4 trays in our HQ fully reconditioned electric Aga range cooker. You can easily fit 4 thin crust pizzas in, just allow a few extra mins than if you were doing three or two. Four cooked nicely in 22 mins, I think 3 would be 18, 2 would be 15 and one probably only 10 or so mins.

The cast iron trays sit beautifully on the runners, and they have a lip to the front which made me feel more secure in lifting the tray in and out. Easy to look after, the baking trays need an occasional seasoning with natural flax oil, to keep them at their best.

The trays also retain heat brilliantly, so if like me you struggle to get your kids to the table because they are too busy making their room into a lego encrusted, cuddly toy covered den of disaster, the pizza will not cool quickly! Also great for more sophisticated meals when you want to serve hot and with style at the table!

Let us know how you get on! And please share any pics of your family baking successes or e-mail them to me katy@blakeandbull.co.uk

Katy is a rural girl at heart. She loves long walks, home cooking, paddling in rivers, warm fires and socks and stomping in leaves with her children. After studying ‘drawing stuff’ at university in Bath, Katy spent 10 years selling wares and managing folk at Habitat in Bath. Welcoming children into her world prompted her to return to drawing things, people and places from home. This led her to us at Blake & Bull and the rest is history. She draws our stuff, provides cuddles for the office dog, and is here to chat to you lovely lot.
