    Bleachedfan -- thanks! Just saw this. But I've already ordered that iron from Amazon. Appreciate the offer, though.

    I use a teaspoon... heated on the gas hotplates. I don't even have a special one, just grab one from the drawer... don't tell my wife! haha! I've done 8x10s using the clothes iron, works fine. Was making a toasted cheese sanger a while back and thought the sandwich press would work for up to 8x10's. Never got around to trying it though.

    Just get a full-sized 500T Seal press and you'll be able to make thin-crust pizza faster than the pizza joints. Just be sure to use silicone release paper so the melted cheese doesn't stick to the platen.
