Plate setter w/o cooking stone

Can I use the plate setter to cook small pizza and/or quasadillas?  Or, do I need the cooking stone?  Thanks.


  • I have used my plate setter for 6 years to cook pizzas, quesadillas and better half just bought me a pizza stone.  The good thing about a pizza stone you can remove it from the grill with ease and thick gloves of course.

    I just use a thin pizza stone resting on the PS and it works just fine.
    Never eat anything passed through a window unless you're a seagull ... BGE Lg.
  • Sounds like forty-crk has made it work.  I have never tried it,  but I'd think the stone would be too hot, burning the crust before the cheese get bubbly.  Give it a shot and see how it works.  Pizza stone is not a huge chunk of change, but it might wrk well.  Let us know.

    I've never used a pizza stone and have had my Egg almost 6yrs. Keep your temp at about 450, your platesetter legs down (of course)  & that should suffice all your pizza needs. I make my dough thin crust from scratch and it takes about 15-20 min a pie depending on the amount of toppings/cheese. Key is to not burn your crust ergo low temp.
