Decided to practice on my pizza today. Just a basic cheese pie with wet mozzarella, but tried a couple different techniques.

First thing that was different was I tried using a pizza stone. I preheated the oven to 500 and let the stone sit for 20 minutes when it got up to temp.

Meanwhile, I formed a nice thin crust and applied the sauce and a little olive oil, then in to the oven to par bake for 5 minutes.

Then I put the fresh mozzarella on, and switched the oven to broil. Then the pizza went in for 2 minutes to to melt the cheese and crisp the crust.

I was very happy with how it came out. The crust was nice and crisp, but still a little fluffy inside, and the the outer ring of the crust got some nice color. Not quite what you would get in a wood fired oven, but much better than I’ve achieved up to this point.

And now for the pics:
