Floor tiles for Pizza Stones
A friend says he uses Italian Unglazed ceramic tiles for Pizza \ Bread stones. He just lays them on a cookie sheet. He has been doing this for years without any problems, he claims. He even leaves them in the oven and turns on the self-cleaning cycle. Has anyone else had any experience doing this? I am a bit wary of trying it.
I had 4 unglazed ceramic tiles inside the oven in my apartment in New York for years. Yes I used it for pizza and always kept them inside the oven due to no storage space (did I mention a New York City kitchen?).
Yes they work. I think that a so-called pizza stone is nothing more than a ceramic tile although I believe it is thicker.
I have seen Alton Brown roast meat on a unglazed clay saucer, covered with an unglazed bell shaped pot from the home depot and they work well.
I am seriously thinking of getting a big unglazed clay saucer for my pizzas... why not? Besides they are cheap!
In fact I was thinking of getting them
