Love, love, love my pizza stone!!! Never was a big pizza fan, but since I've beenmaking my own and using my awesome pizza stone, I have a newfound affection for pizza. Who knew! A board scraper is a very helpful tool to use with your pizza stone, if you get oozing cheese stuck to it, as you don't want to wash it with soap. The stone stays very hot for a while after it comes out of the oven, so you can eat two hot pieces at the same sitting, a plus for me.
