Emile Henry Original 'Smooth' Pizza Stone

$139.00

Our smooth Pizza Stone is a unique cooking tray made from refractory ceramic. It allows you to make delicious pizzas with a golden, crispy crust. Dimensions: 37cmØ. Your pizza will be perfectly cooked, just like in a traditional pizza oven. The smooth surface is ideal to knead and stretch the dough, as well as for garnishing the pizza. All that's left to do is to place it in the oven to get a nice crispy crust. The large handles make the Pizza Stone easy to remove from the oven and serve on the table. The special formula ceramic will keep your pizza hot right through the meal. You can cut your portions directly on the ceramic surface. If using on the BBQ place the stone on the plate or grill when cold and allow it to heat up as your BBQ heats up


Care Instructions:
Allow to cool down completely before cleaning. Do not pour cold water onto a hot dish or it may break from the thermal shock.
Dishwasher safe but we recommend washing by hand
For stubborn residue, soak in hot water and white vinegar before placing in the dishwasher


Material:
* Extremely resistant to heat, the Emile Henry BBQ ceramic can reach 500°C/930°F
* It heats as much as cast iron, but diffuses the heat more gently so the ingredients do not burn as quickly
* Designed for use in ovens both conventional and convection; and can also be used under the grill.
* Use on BBQs; gas, charcoal and natural wood.
* Do not use on stove top elements
* For best results heat gently from cold before adding the pizza base

Preparation and cooking
For best results and for a crispy crust, pre-heat your Pizza Stone in the oven at 240°C / 475°F / Gas Mark 9 for 10 minutes. 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. Roll out your dough, put the toppings on your pizza and, using a pizza peel, place it directly on your Pizza Stone in the oven. Cook for 10-12 minutes at 240°C / 475°F / Gas Mark 9.
The thinner the dough, the higher you should set the oven temperature: up to 250°C / 480°F / Gas Mark 9 for very thin dough.
You can also use it to cook thin-crust tarts, appetizers etc.

Use & Care

Instruction for use
Before using it for the first time, remove all the labels from the product, if necessary using a mild detergent, then clean carefully.
Never use your Pizza Stone directly on a source of heat (gas, electric etc.). You can, however, use it on the barbeque grill, which diffuses heat evenly all over the surface of the dish. For best results, make sure you close the barbeque lid during cooking.
You can cut directly onto the surface of your Pizza Stone, as the glaze is very resistant.
When you take it out of the oven, it will be extremely hot so do not place it in direct contact with anything cold, such as cold water or a cold surface. Place it on a neutral surface, such as a wooden board or cloth
If, when cleaning it, you find that some residue will not come off, soak it in hot water and white vinegar before placing in the dishwasher.
