You can make a cheap durable pizza stone with a eight inch tile, some sterilized play sand, and a eight inch square shallow cake pan ( no more than about one and a quarter inches deep). Fill the cake pan with the sand up to where when you add the tile it is level with the top of the pan. You can add two tiles if you like, but one will work. [p]The play sand I am talking about is available at Lowes and is just silica. I washed it and then placed wet in the pan and cooked it at 400º for about one hour and then kicked up the temps to 500º+ until the fire died out. The sand is advertised as being washed and sterilized, but I wash it and sterilize it again. The eight inch square is a little over eleven inches diagonal, so it fits the small well.[p]I have played around with this for a couple of months with no breakage as of yet. If the tile you have breaks and you want another low price alternative, give the above a try. [p]Zip
