Baking steel using broiler only
Correct me if I'm wrong but a broiler in the US is the same as a grill in the UK right? typically a electric heating element or flame at the top of the oven that gets very hot.
My oven has a separate grill compartment about 16" at the top and I had an idea of using it to cook pizza's using a baking steel.
Has anyone ever tried this? I don't see why it wouldn't work.
The surface will obviously get nice and hot, and I imagine it would also heat the entire piece of steel. My only concern is being electric grill, it's not like you can just switch it on and off like a flame it stays hot for a long time. At highest temp I think it will be too much for the top of the pizza.
