Set your timer: With steam ovens, simply place your food on a sheet pan or baking pan inside the oven cavity, set the timer, touch start, and watch as your food cooks itself. There’s no need to keep an eye on things (as with stovetop cooking) or worry you’ll forget to turn the heat off (as with a conventional oven).
A pizza stone is a subset of what is commonly known as baking stones. The biggest difference is that a pizza stone is typically round, whereas a baking stone is rectangular. But essentially, a pizza stone is a baking stone. But its possible to use a rectangular stone for pizza if you choose.
If you want to prevent your dough from sticking, then your two best friends are flour and cornmeal. These will help form a barrier between the pizza stone and your crust, which will prevent it from sticking! If you’re really having issues, you can always cheat and use parchment paper!
Bake: Bake pizza in the 475F oven, one at a time, until the crust is browned and the cheese is golden, about 10 to 15 minutes. If you want, toward the end of the cooking time you can sprinkle on a little more cheese.
You should not oil your pizza stone because the stone’s porous surface does not season as a cast-iron skillet does. In fact, seasoning a pizza stone does not offer any benefits.
If you do not cook the pizza for long enough it will retain a lot of moisture and there is no chance that the base will become crispy. Thicker dough will also mean that it is harder for the heat of the oven to permeate the dough. This could potentially result in your dough being raw or undercooked in the center.
Generally, the hotter the oven, the better the pizza will be. The best oven temperature for pizza is between 450 and 500 degrees F (250 to 260 degrees C).
It’s simply not getting hot enough. When you put the cold baking sheet in the oven, it needs time to heat up, before it reaches a temperature where it bakes the bottom of the pizza. Baking sheets are also pretty thin and are often made from aluminum. They, therefore, don’t retain heat very well.
While this will vary based on personal preference, the best temperature for cooking homemade pizza is usually between 350 and 450 degrees Fahrenheit. If you want a crispy crust, set your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
Roll out your dough, put the toppings on your pizza and, using a pizza peel, place it directly on your Pizza Stone in the oven. Cook for 10-12 minutes at 240C / 475F / Gas Mark 9.
