Maria, Safeway sells pizza stones for $9.99 right next to their Milena pizza display. You will need to season it when you get it home. (Do an advanced search on that as there are many threads here dedicated to seasoning) They are 15 inches at least. Is that big enough for you?

Target has the stones that will fit both your pizza and your pocketbook.

I'm sure you have Zehrs or Zehrs Superstore in Toronto and the GTA... I recall seeing pizza stones there in the $10-$12 range. I also believe that IKEA has them. All else fails, open up the yellow pages and look up the list of kitchen/restaurant supply stores in the GTA, I'm sure there are many!

I purchased my last one at a restaurant supply store here in Windsor about 5 years ago; it's 35cm square and cost roughly $10. BTW, I do suggest you get a square one rather than a round one, it gives you more surface area and more leeway when you slide the pizza on and off the heated stone. A pizza stone is also great for baking bread, and I can easily fit two loaves on my square stone.

Many people also recommend purchasing a large unglazed tile from a building or flooring centre, but I've yet to find one that sells tiles large enough here in Windsor, perhaps in the GTA you'd have better luck.

Hope this helps a bit.

licia: there are no Targets up here (wish there were)

Alix: I don't think there are Safeways in this area either

If you have a full size oven you want a large pizza stone. A toaster oven is a countertop appliance with a much smaller oven.

No Safeway? Weird. I thought they were all the way across Canada. Um...did you try Superstore (that would be Loblaws I think?) I know they have them too.

Seasoning is basically where you smear oil on your pizza stone and put it in your oven at the highest heat it will go to (with your hood fan on high too!) and get it smokin'. This will create a nice finish on the stone so your pizza just slides on and off.

Go to the hardware or garden center and get a large plant saucer and turn it upside down instant pizza stone and it is cheap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Failing that go to a flooring store and get unglazed quarry tile that what I use and have used them for years. I had them cut to fit a lipped cookie sheet that fills my oven so the do not move on me when I put my bread or pizza on them and I leave it in the oven and if one breakes it does not cost a fortune to replace it go for it.
