Long Pizza Pans - For Double Frico Edge Squares

A few weeks back, I saw in Adam Kuban's Instagram Stories (he's the "OG pizza blogger" that I've posted about from time-to-time) that he had purchased some new pans from Lloyd's Pans that included a long/thin pan that had a pretty unique shape.  I think...he then included a 'repost' (is that what we call them on Instagram?) of a story from TheKitchenWhisperer.Pizza where she was talking about how she was using similar pans.  Here's one of her posts.  And if you look at her feed, there are a bunchThis one appears to be when she first acquired the pans.    Here's one of a full topped pie below:

Thanks to Adam's story - and the fact that he bought these long pans tooo - I first went and followed TheKitchenWhisperer.Pizza on Instagram...and *then* went to Lloyd's to look for pans.  I have bought my "Chicago Thin" pans from Lloyd's - with their PSTK finish (Pre-Seasoned Tuff-Kote) and have been really happy with them.  Here's a post from 2016 showing off my new (back then) circular pans.   Peep this 'about us' page to learn more about Llyod's - who manufacturers their pans in Spokane, Washington.

It didn't take me long to find these "Long Pans" as Lloyd's Pans calls them.  My brain goes right to thinking of a frico edge on two sides of EVERY piece - and that seems like it would be a crowd pleaser.  Everytime I make my Detroit-style pizza, people glom-on to the frico edges/corners.

They call that out in the product description:
Ideally suited for mouth-watering Sicilian or Detroit style crust recipes, Long Pan Pizzas are meant to be shared with those whom you love.
Lloyd's Pans sells three sizes:  12" x 4".  18" x 4".  And 27" x 4".  The 18's were the best fit for our oven.
And, Nat and The Babe have been getting into bread baking.  I think that these could be nice baguette pans, no?  Either on their own or by stacking one on top of the other to make a quasi-dutch oven?

When these arrive, I'll put them through their paces.  I'm thinking of a bake-off between my quarantine pizza (butter crust) and my more traditional Detroit-style pizza with pan lube.
