Pizza crust gets even crispier when cooked on a preheated stone. Our pizza stone (those purchased after Sept. 1, 2020) can be preheated in a 450°F (230°C) for up to 30 minutes. To easily transfer food on and off a preheated stone, use a pizza peel, like the pros do, for less mess and safe hands. Instead of dusting the peel with flour, Julie recommends using cornmeal. Flour sticks to the bottom of the crust but doesn’t bake in, so doesn’t always taste good. Place the folded dough on the peel, unfold, add your toppings, and transfer onto the preheated stone. Cook until the crust is browned and the cheese is melted, about 12–15 minutes. If you don’t have a pizza stone that can be preheated, add a few minutes to the overall cook time.
