The $3 Pizza Stone

This week, if you couldn’t tell, I’m in a pizza-making mood. So today I present you with an article on how to make a $3 pizza stone. Experts will tell you that one of the most important steps of making a good pizza at home is ensuring it’s exposed to the correct amount of heat from your over (i.e a lot!). That’s why there is a huge market for pizza stones. Any aspiring home pizza maker needs a high quality pizza stone in order to maximize the amount of heat on which their pizzas are cooked. At a pizza-making class last weekend, I learned about how the thickness of the stone has an affect on how well the stone is able to maintain its temperature.

What I also know, though, is judging by the photo below, it appears that Home Depot’s tiles produced what looks like some quite appetizing pizza. It’d be interesting to do a taste test between a pizza made on an expensive stone and a pizza made on tiles from Home Depot.

But in the meantime, you should check out How To Make A $3 Pizza Stone on thepauperedchef.com.

About I Dream Of Pizza

Some guys dream about winning the Powerball jackpot, making love to Kate Upton, or scoring the winning touchdown in the Super Bowl. But personally, I spend most of my time dreaming about digging my face into a mouth watering slice of pizza. Fireworks are ignited. Music comes out of nowhere. And just like that, I’ve fallen in love once again. Since 2008, I've chronicled my pizza eating adventures in New York City and around the world on I Dream Of Pizza -- the web's most popular blog dedicated entirely to pizza.
