Finally found the perfect pizza solution for me.

Medium with large stone, spacers, then medium stone. Heated to 625 for an hour.

Did six pies, had good melt when the crust was done on all six. A little burnt where the pizzas overhung the stone, but very good overall.

Partial raws:


Pepperoni, onion, and jalapeno


Nice crust


This one had green olives on half






  • dude, spectacular, love the combination of toppings there, I never have tried that, will do next Sunday, thanks for the idea, Marc

    It really tasted good. I managed to stop at 5 pieces (12 inch pie). My goal is 3 pieces, but I overshot this time :woohoo:

    My bride made the dough. She said it was from The Joy of Cooking. It did come out great. Much better than Publix or Trader Joe's dough.

    Yeah, me too.

    Last few had been sub-par. These turned out great. Key for me is using a clean egg, and making sure the stone the pizza sits on is not exposed to direct heat. Even the medium stone overhangs the medium PS, and therefore got too hot and burnt the crust. Using the large stone as a heat shield, spacers, and then the medium stone, crust came out perfect. YMMV.

  • I've been using my oven with a stone for years and have learned to bake a very good pizza. Tried my egg for the first time with a ps and stone. Heated the stone at 525 for about 45 minutes, slid my home made creation on and checked after about 10 minutes. Bottom was burnt and top was barely cooked. Are these spacers the answer? What are you using for spacers?
  • Lots of people use the green feet that came with your egg. I didn't have an extra set, so I bought some tile pieces (raised decorative tile used in edging), just something to raise the stone off the PS by an inch or so. If stone is directly on the PS, it will get too hot.
  • Got it! Thanks for the help. I try it again.
