    Anyone here into making pizza? 

    I'm trying to find the best baking stone available, and specifically would like a large rectangular style which can accomidate a *large* round pizza or a couple smaller sized ones, as well as be good for bread loaves.

    I know some folks use actual bricks ("firebricks"?) to line their stove, if anyone's knowledgeable about that I'm all ears as well...

    Hey- I use the pampered chef large round baking stone (pre-heated in a 500 degree oven for an hour) and it works great. That's the only stone I have any experience w/ so don't know how it compares to others. It works well for me. Cooks pizza's in under 15 min, evenly, no sticking once its seasoned.

    Over on The Fresh Loaf, Fibrament and Cordierite stones seem to be the most highly regarded. I've had a custom fit Fibrament-D stone for about a year and it's done a great job.
