Pizza Stone Selection and Tips

Pizza Stone
Use & Care

Pizza stones may crack or deteriorate with sudden changes in temperature.

So place your pizza stones in your oven before you turn it on.

Then preheat to maximum temperature for about an hour to get your stones to maximum heat.

Open the oven door as little as possible while pizza bakes.

When you’ve removed the finished pizza, close the oven door as soon as possible and leave it closed till your oven has cooled. Overnight, if possible.

Don't worry about "cleaning" a pizza stone. Pizza stones are beautiful when they're ugly. Anything that bakes to the surface of your stone should be wiped or very gently scraped off.

Avoid soaking or washing.

Every stain and streak is a mark of distinction, a badge of honor that proves you've served in the pizza-making trenches!

      2-Stone Pizza Technique

      I've discovered that using two pizza stones on two oven shelves, even if I'm only making one pizza, gives me professional results. The perfect pizza-baking heat radiating from above and below your pizza gives your pizza a fantastic brick oven effect.


      My 2-stone technique gets consistent rave reviews!
