This ceramic pizza stone makes brick-oven style pizzas and can likewise be used on barbeque grills for barbecuing meats, poultry, fish, and vegetables or in the oven for baking breads, cookies, rolls, biscuits, and other baked products. The pizza stone is made of 100% natural materials, warms in 15 minutes in the oven, and can withstand high oven temperatures. The glaze is micro-crazed adding to crispy well-baked crusts, similar to a pizza oven. The ribbed surface area of the stone allows air to stream under the pizza, assisting to produce the crispy crust. The raised edge avoids the pizza from moving off the stone while placing or removing it with a pizza peel. When used on a grill, the pizza stone turns the grill into an outside pizza oven.
