A pizza stone can help distribute heat evenly across the pizza base and make the pizza’s dough crispy.
Step 1: Place pizza stone on lowest rack
Place pizza stone in a cold oven on the lowest rack.
Never put a cold pizza stone in a hot oven as it can crack the stone.
Step 2: Pre-heat oven
Pre-heat your oven to 450 degrees.
Step 3: Put cornmeal on paddle
Sprinkle cornmeal on pizza paddle.
Sprinkling cornmeal on pizza paddle helps prevent the pizza from sticking to the paddle and the pizza stone.
Step 4: Put dough, sauce, toppings on cornmeal
Put dough, sauce, and toppings on top of corn meal.
Step 5: Slide pizza onto stone in oven and cook
Slide pizza onto the hot stone and cook for 10 minutes.
Step 6: Slide cooked pizza onto paddle, slice, eat
Slide pizza back onto the paddle, slice the pizza, and eat.
Do not use a knife or pizza cutter on a pizza stone. Your knife or pizza cutter will likely be damaged.
Step 7: Cool stone, clean
Let the stone cool and clean with warm water and no soap.
