Greasing a Deep Dish Pizza Stone? Bad for stone and egg?

Looking at the BGE Deep Dish recipe, it says to grease the stone with non-stick spray.  I was under the impression that 1. using sprays on a porous pizza stone was not a good idea and 2. using a spray was not good for the egg.  Am I wrong in thinking this?  Only had my egg for a few weeks now, and don't want to do anything to mess it up!

    i am not sure what recepie it is you are looking at. i do my deep dish in a spring form pan. they are jusgt easier to get the pie out of. i use crisco to grease it. if you have the  bge deep dish stone then dont worry use the grease it will not mess up the stone i have had enough grease on all of my egg componets that whatever you spray on it grease wise will burn off easily!

    happy eggin

    My neighbor has a "seasoned" pizza stone which is slick as glass. I don't think the spray hurts it.

  • IMHO I'd oil it, but not using a canned spray (pump mister is ok). My experience has been that sprays, like PAM, leave a residue that builds and is difficult to remove. Pizza is usually cooked at temps over 400, so Crisco or canola oil rubbed on with a paper towel are fine. They also seem to clean-up much better than a spray (They're cheaper to use as well)

  • Should have gone with Crisco...Canola didn't do the trick.  Guess I'll just have to make another pie

  • Your pizza pans should be black if they are used properly.  I just use olive oil and scrape the pans with a metal spatula.  Never wash them!  I wipe them out with a damp towel before each use.

    Simple ingredients, amazing results!
