The Gardeco 30cm diameter pizza stone is ideal for cooking your pizzas, either inside in a conventional oven or outside in the garden. Made of hard-wearing heat-resistant fire clay, the pizza stone allows a more evenly distributed heat during cooking, and because it is slightly porous, cooking juices are absorbed, giving a superb crispy result. Simply place the pizza on the stone (you can use a pizza peel if your stone is already in the oven or chimenea) and take out when cooked. You may wish to put some cornflour or flour on the stone to avoid sticking. Other baked food can also be cooked on the pizza stone. The pizza stone can also be used to warm up rolls, croissants, etc...
For best results and also in order to avoid thermal shock, it is advised to heat the pizza stone slowly, as soon as you light the oven/ fire. That way, the clay has time to expand slowly and cooking will be improved as it will be more rapid, better capturing flavours. Fire clay being slightly porous, it is advisable to wash the pizza stone with water only and not with detergent. Handle with care, the pizza stone will break if dropped, chip or crack if knocked. After use, it may develop stains due to its porosity, but you can still continue to use it. If the pizza stone is in direct contact with the flames of a real fire, it may stay brown underneath, even after washing. The pizza stone may become very hot, and stay hot for longer than conventional baking trays.
