    Did you pre heat the stone? If you leave the stone in the egg and let it heat up to the temperature you want and then let it sit at that temperature for like 30 minutes then put the pizza on it shouldn't stick.

    First of all, welcome to the forum!

    It also helps to sprinkle some cornmeal on the stone too.

    Never eat anything passed through a window unless you're a seagull ... BGE Lg.

    Chance are if your pizza doesn't stick to the peel, it won't stick to the stone. But as Lit said, your stone should be hot.  I don't use cornmeal (a bit of flour when shaping) and I've never had a pizza stick to a stone.

    I personally use a pizza screen and cook the pizza right on it. Roll out the dough and put it on the screen and then build the pizza tight on it. Then just put the pizza screen right on the pre heated stone in the egg. The pizza screens are cheap and work great.

    You can also just start it on the screen and the put it directly on the stone after the bottom starts to brown.  This is the technique we used back in my pizza shop days....
