Heat the barbecue until very hot. If you have a barbecue-safe pizza stone, so much the better — get that good and hot too. Slide the pizza onto the grill or pizza stone and cover with the lid. Cook for two- three minutes then lift the lid and use a couple of fish slices to swivel the pizza round a few degrees.

How do you season a pizza stone?

While you don't have to pre-season most stones these days, you can speed up the natural process by:
  1. Wipe the new pan with a wet cloth (no soap)
  2. Dry in oven (low heat)
  3. Apply a very light coat of neutral vegetable oil with an old towel (I find paper tends to snag on new stones)

Do you cook pizza directly on stone?

Baking time for a pizza baked directly on a stone is shorter than for pan pizza: allow 8 to 10 minutes. Assemble the second pizza on the peel with the remaining dough and toppings while the first one bakes. Remove the pizza from the oven with a wide metal spatula to slide the pizza onto a pizza peel or pizza pan.

What does a pizza stone do?

Compared to the metal of a baking sheet, the ceramic material of a pizza stone holds heat more evenly, and the porous surface draws water out of particularly wet areas of the dough as it cooks. Plus, when you preheat the stone, it gives the dough a strong burst of initial heat, puffing up the crust.

How long do you bake a pizza at 350?

One way to handle this is to cook the crust first for a short time, and then add the sauce and ingredients and finish cooking the pizza. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Bake the crust for 7-10 minutes. Keep the pizza in the middle of the oven, so the crust won't burn.
