The Grilled Pizza Stone: A Review

I always get excited when I’m trying out a new product for the first time.

I’ve usually done my homework. I know how the product works and what to expect. Over the years, I’ve reviewed dozens of pizza related products.

I eagerly anticipated using the The Grilled Pizza Stone by Red Sky Grilling Products.

According to the website: “By taking advantage of your grill’s high heat and ability to control natural wood smoke, in combination with the Grilled Pizza Stone’s unique shape and material, anyone is able to make great-tasting, wood-smoked, thin-crust pizzas at home.”

I had done all of my prep work for the pizza. I had invited select friends and family to the pizza party.

As a matter of fact (true story), I had a lawyer and a doctor doing all of my prep work, as well as helping with the clean up. They worked for less than minimum wage. They were “paid” with slices of pizza.

I used a commercial gas grill and I pre-heated the stone to the highest possible temperature for almost an hour. This was a mistake, as the first pizza cooked from the bottom and was a little over-done.

I discovered that for this grill, the highest possible temperature was not the best.

I turned down the heat a bit and found the sweet spot for the pizza stone.
All grills vary so you may have to experiment a bit. The rest of the pizzas turned out well. The crust was cooked perfectly. I was amazed at how well the stone performed in spite of my trying to over-heat the stone.

The stone was able to retain the heat and was able to do a good job of getting the pizza crusts cooked.

The verdict? This is a well made product which gives excellent results. I recommend The Pizza Grill Pizza Stone. I feel that in spite of my over-heating the stone, it still performed well.

It is made to be used with either a charcoal grill (like a weber) or a gas grill. It seems it will work equally well in a home oven. If you plan on doing a lot of outdoor grilling, this stone will hold up to the extremely high heat.

i used it right out of the box. No seasoning was needed. I was surprised that for a thin stone, it really held the heat well.

Great review, Albert!  I think that it's so neat that you can use this on a grill because I didn't know that pizza could be prepared in such a way, so thanks for sharing!

By the way, since you're reviewing The Grilled Pizza Stone, I created a topic for it specifically and moved your review over from the general pizza stone topic over to this one.  If you're trying to review a product on Amazon, you should check out the Lunch This tool (which is what I used).  It helps create the topic and compile all the information.  Let me know if you have any questions, I'd be more than happy to answer them :)

I invested in a pizza stone about a year ago. I love using it on the BBQ in the summer! Great review.

Introducing the Grilled Pizza Stone. Changing the Way You Make Pizza at Home! The Grilled Pizza Stone is here! Specifically designed for a 22 ½ kettle grill (like a Weber) this pizza stone works great on gas grills too. By taking advantage of your grills high heat and ability to control natural wood smoke, in combination with the Grilled Pizza Stones unique shape and material, anyone is able to make great-tasting, wood-smoked, thin-crust pizzas at home. Outdoor grills can reach temperatures up to 1000°F; the Grilled Pizza Stone is designed to perform without cracking at temperatures approaching 2300°F. The Grilled Pizza Stone is not only thicker than conventional oven pizza stones, it is made from an exclusive and unique heat resistant compound. Its ideal for the super high heat conditions in your backyard grill. The unique D shape allows for maximum cooking area while allowing enough oxygen to fuel the coals and wood chunk below. Just like an old-world clay or brick oven, the Grilled Pizza Stones material draws moisture from your pizzas dough as it cooks, resulting in a crispy, crunchy crust. Not only does it crisp the crust, it allows the pizzas to cook long enough without burning so the cheese gets bubbling hot, and your toppings are heated through. The last key element to making authentic old-world style pizza is the wood smoke flavor. When used in conjunction with a hinged grill grate, adding a wood chunk to your grill is a breeze.
