    I've never done the thin and crispy variety but that's my son's favorite crust for pizza. Whether I make dough or not. 
    I raise my kids, cook and golf.  When work gets in the way I'm pissed, I'm pissed off 48 weeks a year.

    I used the thin before. I just threw it directly on grates with plate setter in and they turned out good.

  • I also have cooked these,I used the stone just as if it were fresh dough. They cook pretty fast being so thin.

    They are great.  You probably already know how to cook pizza your way, but I use these crusts with:
    • A regular pizza stone on top of cooking grid on top of plate setter.  
    • Get the temp high (450+) and make sure to monitor the pizza closely or you can burn it. 
    • I just put some corn meal on the wood peel under the pizza and it transfers over to the stone. 
    • Also pre-heat the stone. 
    Now that I got an AR for Christmas I may change this strategy but I know it works well as is.    Enjoy. 

    I feel a whole lot more like I do now than I did when I got here.

  • I'd maybe add some 1/2" copper tees under your pizza stone.  I plan on doing that next pizza cook.  I put our pizza stone right on top of PS and the bottom of the pizza was a little more burnt(black) than we wanted.  Others have suggested the copper tees in between PS and pizza stone gives some air circulation and less burning like I experienced.

    I use these crusts all the time.  Plate setter, legs up, grate, pizza stone on the grate.  Make sure to let the stone get hot.

    That's what I did, they are good crusts.  My wife and kids loved it and it was way easier than making my own dough.
