Why buy pizza out when you can make it like the pros at home!

  • Jun 5, 2009
I've always wanted to make pizza at home.  I tried using a baking pan but that caused my pizza to turn out undercooked.  Low and behold, I discovered the secret to making pizza at home is to use a pizza stone.  A pizza stone really does wonders to keep the oven at a nice even temperature. It applies direct hit to the bottom of the pizza baking the crust to a crispy finish.  You can use pizza stones for all types of baking related things. I'm not quite there yet though.  I'm content just making pizza on it.  Needless to say, my pizza turned out excellent.  The picture attached to my review was my second attempt.  FYI, the key to making easy pizza is buying premade dough from Trader Joe's for $.99!  They have all the ingredients there, it's so easy.  I'll save my recipe for another post.  I bought this particular pizza stone from Sur La Table but you can buy them anywhere.  The other things is cheap stones work just as well as expensive stone so really can't go wrong.  Keep in mind, pizza stones are pourous and so you need want to wash it with any dish soap.  This will get absorbed and leak into the flavoring of the food. Just a clean wash and dry with water works best.   All the caked on food adds seasoning to the stone just like a cast-iron pan.

I couldn't agree more, the next best thing to an actual wood burning pizza oven is the pizza stone. TIP: Make sure to let the stone get to temp, and it might take awhile (550 F - 650F) depending on your liking. I have heard pizzas on the grill are fantastic but I don't see any reason to mess with perfection!

I have one of these and it makes pizza night much more fun than just calling the local pizza joint.

I agree. Pizza stones make the best crust. I had forgotten how good home made pizza can be. Thanks for the reminder.

C'mon Hayes...I thought you were better than that. Make your own crust. It is easy and fun. My daughter and I made pizza from scratch last weekend, and I actually couldn't find our pizza stone so the dough came out a bit soft, but it was still great and mixing, kneading and rolling out dough is a stress relieving activity. I used the Joy of Cooking recipe
