Pizza Stone – This has to be the best purchase I have made in a while, totally worth it, but there are a few tricks to get your pizzas the way we all like, crispy and yummy. Notice that you ABSOLUTELY have to buy the pizza peel too, because the stones will be extremely hot and the peel will be the ONLY way to get the pizzas in and out of the oven.
First, you will need to put your stone inside the oven while it is still off. Once stone or stones are inside, turn on your oven to the maximum temperature, just make sure you read the stone instructions, some of them only survive to 475F only, so make sure your oven temperature is set up conforming to that.
You will need to preheat the pizza stone for about 30 minutes before adding your pizza.
I also like to pre bake my pizza dough only (without toppings) for about 5-8 minutes before, this will help achieve the crispiness without burning the toppings.
Sprinkle lots of corn meal over the pizza peel before adding the pizza to the oven, this way your pizza will come right off without any problems.
If you pre bake the dough, once you add toppings, your pizza should be in the oven for about 10-15 minutes using the pizza stone.
Also make sure, you don’t add too many wet ingredients, and choose a thicket type of tomato sauce, this will help your pizza to become super crispy.
To avoid your pizza being too dry, drizzle olive oil over the toppings, and spread tomato sauce over the edges, to give it a nice color before you bake it 🙂
I hope you enjoy the pizza stone as much as I do.

* Remember not to touch your stones after because they will be super hot, and never wash your stones with soap, water only and just when they are completely cold.
