If you are looking for an all around great kitchen item to cook with, either in the oven or on a grill, you will be surprised at how versatile a pizza stone can be.
Pizza stones can either be round or square, and come in a different array of sizes, and are made of a slightly rough surface. As it cooks, it heats up and disperses heat evenly allowing you to cook breads, pizzas, quesadillas, cookies and even meats on the stone with less burning or scorching and creates a fantastic crispy crust.
With the popularity of more foods being cooked on a grill, a pizza stone allows a great smoke flavor to be added to any homemade recipe. The stones are "grill-to-table ready", they fit most charcoal and all gas grills and after seasoning your pizza stone a few times, they are basically non-stick. The more you season the stone, the better the flavor is added to each meal!
Besides using your pizza stone for baking foods, you can always warm the pizza stone to the desired heat and use it as a warming tray during holiday parties and get-togethers.
One great thing about the pizza stone, the clean up! You do not want to use soap on the stone. When it cools to room temperature, the stone can be rinsed with water. Do not try to remove oils that build up from using the stone as it is unnecessary and actually helps season the stone into a slicker, more easy to use item.
