RE: parchment paper

That's how I bake my pizza at 500 degrees in my home oven. The parchment paper may darken and char around the edges, but it doesn't catch on fire - at least not for me. I try to have the square of paper measure just about the size of my round pizza - meaning no extra inches of paper hanging off the sides.

Sometimes I even trim the paper in a circle (er, not really a circle, more like an ameoba shape) around the pizza, and it does get dark and brittle around the edges, but no fires have happened.

I often cook "en pappilotte"....meaning wrapping food in parchment and baking. I cook bread and cookies on parchment....never a problem.
Much easier than greasing a pan....and easier to clean up too!

RE: parchment paper

Amen and amen, Lindac! I don't ever bake cookies or bread loaves on a sheet pan w/o using parchment paper anymore; life is too short to spend it greasing pans and washing them up after baking.

RE: parchment paper

This is a timely post for me. I have never used parchment paper. Recently I was visiting a friend and she was advising me to get with the program. Can you buy this at a regular grocery store - or do you have to buy it at a cooking store?

I think that now most of your larger grocery stores have parchment paper - usually in the aisle with Saran Wrap, aluminum foil, paper lunch bags, etc.

RE: parchment paper

I have bought it at the restaurant supply. The last box I bought was not like the parchment I had before. It came in sheets and was thinner than the regular parchement, so it did not work well for pizza dough. I use it for lots of other stuff though. I paid two dollars for 1,000 sheets of bakery sheet cake size so I have to cut it in half (at least!) to use it.

RE: parchment paper

The roll of parchment I have now says not to use with temps higher than 420... the one previous said not higher than 450.

Stacy, one of the Cooking forum members had parchment catch on fire in her oven. User beware!
