How do I keep my pizza crusts from curling?

My pizza crust curls when I bake it. I tend to bake directly on my pizza stone in standard electric oven at 500F. How do I stop the crust from curling? Do I need one of those pizza screens? Pizza Screens - The WEBstaurant Store

I would expect the edges to puff up but not curl. When you stretch the dough, does it shrink back?

As a side note, I would stay away from the site in your link I had a less than satisfactory experience with them and a defective product.

Are you docking the crust before adding your toppings?

Can you post your recipe and maybe a picture of what is happening. Then it might be easier to sugest something.
You are what you eat.
