If you are a fan of pizza you’ve probably at least seen an increase in the number of pizzerias and restaurants offering ‘stone cooked pizzas.’ You may have also noticed that a number of TV chefs and food bloggers are regularly touting stone cooked pizza as well. The Pizza Stone is increasing in popularity, and for the home cook, the good news is that you don’t have to go out to enjoy it, you can make it home yourself, using our stainless steel and high temperature ceramic 15″ Pizza Stone.
What’s the big deal about stone cooked pizza? One of the reasons that the pizza usually tastes better at your local pizzeria is that their oven is hotter and the pizza is cooked directly on the oven floor. A pizza stone can mimic this effect in a home oven, as it gets very hot and then transmits that heat to your pizza quickly and evenly. It’s this high, fast heat that crisps the pizza crust and quickly melts the sauce and cheese and creates that delicious taste.
Chefs don’t just use their pizza stones for pizza either. They can be used to create crispy cookies, flatbreads, quesadillas and even healthier french fries. You can even use a pizza stone to cook kid friendly convenience foods like chicken nuggets to give them that ‘restaurant edge’ that no microwave ever could.
Our Pizza Stone measures a generous 15″ in diameter, the perfect size for pizza. It’s durable, easy to use and easy to clean and, as an added bonus, is attractive enough to be used to serve tableside at get togethers, especially if you also make use of the included stainless steel rack and pizza wheel. You can serve up your food in style knowing it’s cooked great, tastes great and everyone else will be at at least a little bit jealous of your apparent culinary expertise!
