Note: The hotter you can make your oven, the better it is for cooking pizza. This is the major difference between Pizzaria Pizza and homemade pizza. The professional ovens in a Pizzaria will crank up many times hotter than the average home oven. There are a couple of things you can do to help make your oven cook pizza better:

1. Buy a good Pizza Stone. A Pizza Stone is a big piece of tile you stick on the bottom shelf of your oven and just leave there. It does several things to help with baking but mainly it holds and concentrates the heat, thus making the oven hotter and more efficient. This is especially good when cooking pizza.

2. Preheat your oven (with you Pizza Stone inside to absorb the heat) as hot as it will go for up to an hour before you cook the pizza.

Old Stone Oven Pizza Stone

Old Stone Oven Pizza StoneA baking stone for home oven use reminiscent of the stone baking ovens of earlier times. Over 30 years ago the Old Stone Oven Company first introduced the baking store for home use and it is still the best. Thicker than other stones available, it has a porosity and heat retention that is perfect for a good crust. The Old Stone Oven Pizza Stone duplicates crispy pizzeria quality pizza – crust and all- in a standard kitchen oven.
