What temperature do you cook pizza on a pizza stone?
Preheat the stone until it reaches 550° F (Pizzacraft stones can withstand 900° F) The correct oven temp for a pizza stone should exceed 500° F if possible.

Do you have to preheat a pizza stone?
You want the stone to preheat for at least 15 minutes before you try to cook the pizza to ensure the stone is good and hot and will cook the crust properly.

Can you use parchment paper on a pizza stone?
Simply place a piece of parchment paper on top of your pizza peel and assemble your pizza. Then, transfer the pizza (parchment paper and all) onto your preheated pizza stone (I usually heat the oven to about 475°) and bake until the crust is golden and the cheese is bubbly.
Should I oil my pizza stone?
You should NEVER apply oil to a pizza stone. A stone is a porous ceramic surface, unlike the smooth surface of cast iron and it will not season like cast iron. Back the temperature down to the temperature needed 10 minutes before you put the bread/pizza in. Do not put it in water and don’t apply oil to it, EVER!
Why is my pizza sticking to the stone?
Pizzas sticking to the Stone Baking Board or peel can be the result of a few variables: The dough is too wet. If your dough has a hole in it, the toppings will fall into the oven and can cause the pizza to stick. Be careful to check this while your pizza is still on the peel.
Why did my pizza stone crack?
The moisture can cause it to crack. Use only dough that is room temperature or warmer. (Some have even suggested warming it slightly on the stove top before placing it on the stone.) Wait until stone is completely cold before removing it from oven.
Should I flour my pizza stone?
Do not flour the Pizza Stone (as the flour might burn) and place it on the lowest shelf of the oven. During this time, sprinkle flour or very fine couscous over your work surface. The couscous will help you remove your pizza easily afterwards.
What do you put on a pizza stone to keep pizza from sticking?
Avoid lifting or handling the stone when it is hot. To prevent the dough from sticking then it may be better to use fine polenta, cornmeal or semolina rather than flour. These are slightly coarser than flour so won’t turn into a gluey paste as quickly if they come into contact with water.
