For Christmas I received the pizza stone and wooden peel that I had requested and I couldn't wait to get them home and try them out. Here's the sleepy eyed Christmas morning picture of me opening it. (Thanks TKO!)
Upon our return, Thai Veggie Pizza was among the first things on the menu. Brett carefully read the directions for the stone and I made the dough. Regular readers will find it no surprise that Brett wielded the pizza peel. I can just imagine what a horrible doughy mess would be in the bottom of our oven if I had done it. We covered both the stone and the peel with cornmeal to prevent sticking.
We also made the executive decision to not try and take the pizza out of the oven with the peel. We just removed the whole stone. I did goof around with the peel once the pizza and stone were safely out of the oven and it is pretty clear that I would have shoved the whole thing off onto the rack.
As advertised, the crust was light and crisp and pretty darn delicious.
