Welcome to Pie - home of the original Rome sandwich cooker
we make them several times a year.
we use pie dough, pizza dough, crescent rolls and all kinds of fillings. we like to do them with a group and everyone shares ingredients and of course samples of what you make. one year we did cinnamon rolls.

The pie iron is a VERY old tool (c.1900?).....when I was a kid.. way back in the late 50's... my mother had one.... and I think she had it when she was a kid! (mine is round)

It now resides on my kitchen wall!

Someone is making new pie irons now... (sometimes called Sandwich iron, Pudgy, mountain, or Hobo iron) you can also use meat and cheese fillings. We used two slices of bread and filling.... closed the pie iron and it trims off the crust... the FIRST Pop Tarts!

The best is making pizza with the pie irons.

2 slices of bread
Contadina Pizza Squeeze (easy to store and reuse)
Hormel pre-sliced pepperoni (convenience)
Feel free to experiment with any ingredients you might have.

Our favorites are pizza pies with all the fixin's (pepperoni, mushrooms, ham, and beef) and hot ham and cheese pies. We've been makin pies since I was a youngster. For us, pie irons and camping have always gone hand in hand. We are on our 3rd or 4th iron with the current one being a Lodge cast iron double iron. Now I cook double time! My father also has a cast iron hot dog cooker but in my opinion a good old stick works just as well.

I reccomend you buy the cast iron ones. We have hd both the aluminum and iron ones and the cast iron is much better. We use them quite often for making pizza, desert pies, hot dogs hamburgers, etc. in the mornings I even us one to toast a bagel.

Use pillsbury pizza crust - works so much better than bread. Yummy!
