Pizza night!

We usually do pizza once a week on Friday nights. When its not 100 degrees outside we like to make it from scratch (sauce and dough). Well, we’re in need of a grocery store run as options are running thin around here so I made some homemade pie’s and use what I had on hand.

I have a real easy pizza dough recipe, I can make it in the KitchenAid in about ten minutes. So I mixed up the dough got it rising while the wife and I took a run.

When we got back, I opened up a cold one started the sauce and hopped in the shower. :cheers2:

Then while the oven was warming up to 500 degrees, the pizza stone cracked and camera battery died! :censored2: Oh well, I used a pan instead and took some shots with my phone.

Bread sticks

Half sausage and half sweet banna peppers (garden fresh), onions, black and green olives.

Had a little dough left over so I made stuffed bread with garden fresh husky cherry tomatoes, basil, onions, with feta and shaved sharp provolone and parmesan cheese.

That is the second stone that cracked on me in about a years time:shrug: The wife said she's got a pampered chef party to go to next week so we'll give that brand a try! Come on over! I am thinking a pulled pork pizza is going to be in the works next time!:woohoo:

I wonder if they are heating up too fast causing em to crack?

I wonder if a piece of counter top granite wouldn't make a good pizza stone. HAs anyone ever tried it? I wouldn't think that it would be easy to crack, and I wouldn't think they would want much $ for it either.

I was wondering the same thing, mybe after they get some miles on them they cant take the fast heat up. I'll have to try bringing up to 400 then on up to 500.

I'll have to look into that as it sure would be more durable than terra cotta.

My Pampered Chef stone is in 2 pieces as well. I have a 50 pound chunk of smooth marble in the garage that is 20x30x1 I should try someday.
