One important thing to remember when cooking with a pizza stone is to never place a cold pizza stone into a hot oven as this may cause it to crack.
Step by Step Guide
- Sprinkle the pizza stone with cornmeal and place in a cold oven. Heat to 230°C
- Prepare your pizza
- Once the pizza stone has heated up, open the oven and slide the pizza onto the stone. Cook for 10-12 minutes or until it is crisp and golden around the edges.
- Remove pizza from the oven using a spatula or something similar and transfer to a serving plate. Leave the pizza stone in the oven to cool.
- If you are serving your pizza on the stone, use an oven glove to remove them both from the oven and place the stone in the serving rack to bring to the table.
