Pizza sheets and silicon baking paper offer a multitude of uses and benefits compared to metal foils. Although both have their individual purposes, only silicone baking paper is actually designed to be used with food. While many people still use metal foils to line making sheets and for other cooking uses, research in the International Journal of Electrochemical Science discovered that the use of aluminum foil during cooking causes some aluminum leaches into food. Leaching increases with higher heat (roasting and broiling) and acidity (tomatoes, vinegar, vitamin C–rich produce).
Benefits of Pizza Sheets
Pizza sheets allow you to save time and money on cleanup, are a healthy alternative to metal foils and silicon baking papers help to eliminate sticking to the pan and allow food to peel off easily. Other key benefits of Pizza Sheets and Silicon Paper include:
- Reduces waste and prevents burn.
- Heat and grease resistant with excellent release.
- Doesn’t contain metal and is heat resistant.
- Allows more air and moisture to escape.
- Versatile; works to roll out pastry dough and great for freezing or storing.
Overall although Foil has its uses, like for wrapping food, cover bowls to hold in heat and to prevent messes around the stove; foil really shouldn’t be used to cook with at a high temperature.
