Nope. Kids make theirs right in the screen and then they can sit as long as it takes to get to the oven and nothing sticks terribly. No fuss no extra flour no pizza casualties. I use them for fries too on convection. Dough doesn’t have to be perfect either. Even if it’s too wet or thin you don’t have to worry.@PaulOinMA , that prime rib looks delicious! Chili, too.
@EbS-P, you really got my attention with your mention of pizza screens. I’ve heard mention of lots of paraphernalia: stones, steels, peels, perforated pans, and the like, but never screens. I had to look that up, and now I’m really intrigued. Do you still use a peel for transferring in and out of the oven?

After this we'll make an Italian Meatloaf that will end up in a spaghetti sauce with some cheese melted on top.old italian here i love gnocchi. that looks great. and yes dan freeman it always make me hungry too, but i'll keep looking
Sometime in December we ordered a red casserole dish (2.3 quarts) they sent yellow so when they ask how we liked the dish, we told them we received the wrong color, we sent them the picture and they said keep the dish and we'll send you the red dish at no charge, when the second dish came in it was yellow (picture 2674) we sent pictures of the two yellow dishes together along with some pictures of the shipping labels (they requested that) they said keep the second dish at no charge and we'll send the red dish, I didn't take a picture but we finally received the red dish we ordered.
The last four pictures are a gnocchi casserole I made in the yellow dish around Christmas time, the wife liked it so much that she wanted it again, in the red dish this time. Tomorrow I'll make the spaghetti sauce and either Sunday or Monday I'll make the gnocchi casserole .
We won't have any meatballs that I can put in so I'll brown some loose sausage and use that along with three different cheeses and the sauce.

By the end of the huge meal, my grandmother (and then my mother) would invariably forget they had also made artichokes. It seemed like everyone was so full that half of us took an artichoke home 😂it's hard to get good italian food anywhere. well at least italian/american. i grew up with a mother that could cook anything and the family even said she was the best cook in the family. i lost 25 almost 28 pounds just by stopping sugar. it depends on the time when the doc takes blood i float between pre diabetic and full diabetic so had to cut the sugar out. but when it comes to good italian food then i eat. i grew up at the time when my family would play frank sinatra, dean martin and louis prima. and would eat on holidays. soup then the main course then the salad then fruit and nuts then the coffee and pastrys everything homemade. i really miss those times when everybody was alive and cooking
