so the wife found this awesome pizza stone at a garage sale. Never used a pizza stone any secrets? Have fresh basil,pepperoni, buffalo mozzarella, sauce, shrooms, any tips would be awesome.

Mine works on the grill. Awesome. Make crust day before. Lightly oil, cover with plastic wrap, and rest in fridge overnight. Increases gluten and makes a much better crust. Chicken and ranch. Mac and cheese pizza. Careful with cheese. Too much insulates too much and makes proper cpoking tough.

Burrito shells or sandwich wraps make great pizza crusts.

Wife used a stone for a few years but went to an air bake pan a while ago, cooks an outstanding crust

Make sure your stone is preheated for 1/2 hour minimum,45 min to 1 hour ideal. For sticking until it is seasoned use corn meal on the stone. eventually the stone will not allow anything to stick. just scrape clean as stated below.

Make sure it's preheated...not just the oven. Piece of wax paper under the pie for a min or two keeps it from sticking and scorching. Try to keep non pizza stuff off it. Don't wash it just scrape off what's left on it. Don't be afraid to try different dough recipes. It takes a bit of trial and error sometimes to dial in your recipe, stone and oven.

Place stone into oven "indoors or out" at time of start up,place pie onto stone at desired temperature.

found that a combination of farmers cheese and mozzarella is a nice combination, can add some cheddar too

sometimes, just plain burger meat is a nice option

Don't have a stone but would like one so it will be interesting to see what others have to say. With that, when we make pizza we pre-cook the crust for a few minutes to get a crispier crust in the end.
