A baking stone is a cooking surface specially designed for baking pizzas and so it is called a pizza stone. It can be made of ceramic or stone. Usually, baking stones are used for making cookie sheets, bread, pizza, etc.
The raw materials used in the baking stone have poor heat conductivity that prevents the food from burning. So instead of using metal bakeware, a baking stone is the best cooking option. The porous surface of the stone absorbs moisture from the food that is placed on the stone and creates a crispy crust.
How to use a Baking Stone?
First, preheat the baking stone. This will heat up all over the stone surface and allows the food to bake at an even temperature. Since the stone retains heat very well, it can maintain an even temperature inside the oven. So it is safe for you to use a baking stone.
Note: The preheating time for the oven and baking stone is different. So keep the oven cold when you preheat the baking stone. This can help you prevent thermal shock, cracking, or other damages.
