Baking stones were used in ovens long before oven racks were invented, in order to keep food from burning or being directly on the heat. Flat bread is a dish that's made on a heavy, thick stone. Corn is spread on the stone in order to produce a tortilla like product. Nowadays, the baking stone is associated with baking pizzas, although the baking stone has many applications. Baking stones come in numerous materials, and are either round or rectangular. Baking stones are made of ceramic, clay or even marble.

Baking stones tend to produce desirable qualities in your pizza and bread. Bottom crusts turn out light and crunchy because the stone obsorbs more moisture than a metal cookie sheet. Baking stones are also superior for distributing heat evenly which means there is less chance of burning your food. It's recommended to prepare a pizza and then place it on the heated stone in the oven, as this tends to be the most effective. We also recommend using a cooking spray of some kind in order to prevent food from sticking to the stone. Foodservice Superstore is your one-stop-shop for all baking supplies.
