Ciao Alberto,
How do you like this stone? Would you buy it again? How long does it take to get hot? Do you just use the bottom heating element? I some times lay a bit of wood over the lower heating element to make some smoke like a wood oven and it works pretty well.
Best, Ed



I guess I don't really need to answer since we talked about it on last week end, but just in case and for anyone who might be interested in the same questions:

-I use top and bottm heating (I have no other option unfortunately). A pizza oven would also have heat from top and bottom at the same time.

- Takes about 40-60 minutes to heat the stone up.

-I'd definitely buy it again but probably a bigger one (especially if I had a large enough oven). This one is only enough for a pizza at a a time.


Ciao Alberto,
In the meantime I ran across a 40x40 cm piece of granite at a do it yourself store for €4.50 it is quite thick and seems to make an excellent pizza.
