Bialetti - 15" X 14" Square Pizza Stone With Rack - 7326
Bialetti bake stones are the ideal surface for cooking perfect pizzas, breads, biscuits, cookies or rolls. Made of ceramic, the stone absorbs excess moisture and distributes heat evenly while it bakes your crust light and crispy. You’ll also find it useful for heating and reheating ready-made or frozen pizzas, too. Because your baking stone retains its heat, bring it from your oven directly to the table and keep your foods warm while serving.
Clean baking stone before using. Rinse in warm water only; DO NOT USE SOAPY WATER as the stone will absorb the smell and taste of the detergent. Let dry thoroughly and season cornmeal for the first several uses.
Allow the stone to cool before cleaning. To remove baked on foods, scrape with a spatula and rinse in warm water. Do not soak or clean in dishwasher, or wash with detergent or soapy water. The stone may absorb the taste and smell of the detergent. Let the stone air dry completely before your next use.
Your baking stone will darken and retain some staining with continued use over time. This is normal and part of the stone’s natural seasoning process; it will not affect its cooking performance nor will it affect the taste of the food.
Pizza Dough Tip: Place dough on a lightly floured surface and pat into disk. Use a rolling pin or your hands to roll or stretch the dough into a circle that is 1/4 inch thick and 12-13 inches in diameter. Transfer to a cornmeal dusted pizza peel. Build up the edges slightly and lightly brush with olive oil.
