    We also just got a pizza stone! But we make our own pizza crust and sauce…it’s not very hard, especially if someone gave you a Kitchenaid Mixer for the wedding! Try it sometime, it’s fun!

    Some chef on a cooking show I watched said white dishes display food the best, so good choice for your photo’s πŸ™‚

    I have had my pizza stone for years! I love it! I feel like I used it a lot more when it was new, but Mark and I have busted it out a couple of times.

    Man, now I want pizza. πŸ™‚

    I love Public pizza dough as well! If you come across a secret pizza dough rolling method let me know. My tasty pizzas always look like crazy amebas. Odd, but yummy.

    The title of this post totally made me think of Mellow Mushroom, the pizza place. I don’t know about any you’ve been to, but that description def fits the atmosphere/ staf of the one near me haha.

    That pizza you guys made looks fantastic!

    I don’t have a pizza stone but it sounds amazing!! I love crispier crust. We don’t have Publix here but I’m obsessed with Trader Joe’s pizza dough!

    Pizza stone=love. We love Trader Joe’s dough for homemade pizza. We don’t make it as often as I’d like. πŸ™‚

    Agree, a pizza stone is wonderful! I received one as a gift and figured it would go in the pile of kitchen stuff I rarely used but I actually use it all the time. And your combination with the brussels sprouts sounds pretty great too!

    Use the pizza stone to reheat pizza as well. Heat the oven with the stone inside before you add the pizza it makes it nice and crispy.

    I make pizza dough with a recipe I found in bon appetit (http://www.bonappetit.com/recipes/2012/03/no-knead-pizza-dough). It may sound scary if you aren’t used to baking with yeast but I swear it is super easy! It just takes a little planning because you have to start it the day before. The recipe makes 6 pizzas so I usually freeze the left-over balls and thaw when I want to use them.
    I also really like Trader Joe’s dough when I’m feeling lazy because it is super cheap and delicious!

      I also never roll my dough out with a rolling pin. I always shape it with my hands in the air using gravity. I hold onto the edges and turn it in my hands to stretch it out before placing it on my stone or the grill.

        I always shape mine with my hands too. I’ve tried rolling it with a pin before, but it’s always a lost cause! πŸ™‚

    I use our pizza stone all the time. I bake biscuits or rolls on it. It is great to reheat pizza or anything bready like sandwiches. We just leave it in the oven.

    I love my pizza stone! Unfortunately when I moved to the city I had to leave it home because I don’t have enough room in my kitchen! Hopefully when I get my own place I can bring it back!

    LOVE my pizza stone!! I make pizza about once a week. I make my own dough, though, it’s really easy — you should try it! I like to make my dough half whole wheat with some ground flaxseed and even a little oat flour. Really adds some health to the whole pizza night thing πŸ™‚

      I’ve made my own dough before, but haven’t mastered the yeast part of it yet. We like a fluffy crust with a crispy bottom and my homemade dough never measures up to the Publix bakery dough in those aspects.

      • Kristy @ Kristy’s Health Revolution
        January 16, 2013

        It can be tricky!! My secret is to buy the packets of yeast rather than the jar, and store them in the refrigerator. If you have a good, fresh yeast it’s easier to get that texture. But buying it is fine, too!!

    Pizza stones are the best! Mine is old and browned and aged with love. You will love it for years to come.
    I’ve got to agree though, making your own pizza dough is suprisingly easy. You basically just make it and let it sit for several hours to rise. Check it out.

    • Meghann

      Yes, but remembering to make it ahead of time and letting it rise is the challenge. πŸ˜‰

    We got a pizza stone when we got married in November, and I LOVE it! It absolutely does make such a difference! It’s amazing! My next goal is to work on learning to make my own pizza dough!

    Just a reminder to all you new stoners…. (hehe) to not use soap on it when you clean it. (I usually just scrape off any food with the Pampered Chef plastic scraper ~ and wipe it off with a damp paper towel)

    My hubby and I have a pampered chef one that i have FINALLY mastered. πŸ™‚ next on our list is a pizza peel. they seem to have nice ones at williams sonoma.

    Pizza is definitely my favorite food so my stone is definitely well used, seasoned and aged. I keep it in the oven all the time and have been known to cook other food items on it in addition to pizza. Highly recommend a quality pizza peel as well like Emily N mentioned in her comments. And she is right, Williams Sonoma has really nice ones. Often, I bake my my pizza on a regular pizza pan for 10-12 minutes then put it on the stone for the remaining time. IDK, but the crust gets even more crispier doing it this way.
