I've only made pizza twice but from reading posts on here I would make sure that you allow the stone to heat up. I think this is very important as it will give you the nice crust. I've have went with corn meal both times and like the product. If I can only get better at making more symmetrical pies! Luckily for me, an ugly looking pie is not necessarily a bad tasting one.
We cooked pizzas two nights ago and they were great. I was surprised with our pear/gorgonzola/walnut/brie pizza! It was awesome. I will post pics next time but I was in control of cooking multiple pies this time.
