Pizza Stone?

...well the lack of one. I was looking through recipes on cooks country and want to try thier St.Louis style pizza. They say to use a pizza stone, OR an inverted baking pan. Has anyone tried using the inverted pan? Im going to give it a shot and hope it goes well. But I was just wondering. I love looking at the cooks country site, but get frustrated because there are so many that I cant view because Im not a paying member. Oh well. At least I can see some, lol.

So yeah...just curious.

I have one. Registered for it with our wedding because of how much DH likes pizza. Haven't used it yet, lol. We've been married 3.5-ish years. I have had a couple opportunities if we had purchased a smaller pizza. Its a 14 in stone and we had gotten a 16 inch pizza, oopsie.

Im wondering if my pizzas may taste any better by using something like a stone. But I dont see myself actually going out and buying one. So its the pan or nothing, lol.

I love Cook's Country too, and America's Test Kitchen, so I know the recipe you are talking about.

I have not tried the baking pan method for lack of a peel.

Incidentally, I have been reading a lot about making crispier breads (actually looking for a great cracker recipe) and I am about to try grinding some rice in my grain mill to add to the flour for pizzas.

It's not cheap, but I HIGHLY recommend Pampered Chef's stones. I think they have to sizes, and I have the bigger size. It's AWESOME!!! It's great for pizzas and cookies, rolls, biscuits, anything you would use a pizza stone or baking sheet for. My cookies used to be pretty funny looking, and almost always too dark on the bottom, but when I use the stone, they are always perfect. My niece got one at a garage sale, didn't think she'd ever use it and gave it to me. Now I say HAH!!! lol

Really, it's TOTALLY worth the price. I'm not sure what what is though, I'd say between 40 nd $50 for the big one.

I agree with Misty! I have a PC pizza stone & use it for all kinds of stuff...pizza, biscuits, cookies, chicken nuggets, cheese sticks, pretty much anything that is not juicy or greasy...those things I put in my PC bar stones.
