Well, I am in the market for a new pizza stone. Mine is now in two pieces. I was stupid.

I had a pizza stone crack on me. Can't remember what brand. I just kept using it in two pieces until I moved into my house, and I bought a new one. That was 3 years ago. I just noticed the other day, I still have to original box for it. It is a Great Gatherings 15 Inch Pizza Stone, with Rack. I keep it in the oven all the time, unless I need to remove it to get more room in the oven.

I got a new pizza peel for Christmas (thank you Kathleen's parents). Of course I was excited to give it a go.

So I made up a pizza last night (for Kathleen) and when I tried to put it in the oven the toppings went but the dough didn't. Apparently I didn't use enough corm meal.

So I have cheese and mushrooms sizzling on the stone and a pizza that needs to get into the oven. I pulled the stone out of the oven and cleaned it up best I could with a spatula, put it back in and baked her pizza.

Before I put mine in I wanted to see if I could get anything else off the stone and when I went to move it only part of it moved.

So.. now I am looking at new stones.

I was less stressed about breaking the stone than I was about the pizza. It came out with a vague egg shape.

Don't feel too bad--sometimes the chickens lay eggs that have a vague pizza shape...

I have been looking at some stones and I found one that had the ugliest pizzas on it in the pictures. Made me laugh how bad the pies looked while trying to sell a stone.

But on the bright side you get to go shopping for a new stone, and maybe some other kitchenalia

Stone

I have a Pampered Chef stone a friend gave to me and it works great ,also I never put any oil on my stone and when it comes time to clean it I just put it under running water and scrape it with the edge of a spatula.
