Soapstone Pizza Stones
People have been using soapstone to cook for centuries, and with good reason. While not only being durable and aesthetically pleasing, soapstone is a nonporous natural stone with amazing thermal properties. Unlike many other kinds of stone, soapstone is able to maintain heat for long periods of time. When taken out of the oven, it will keep your pizza hot, fresh, and ready to serve. If you never made a pizza on a soapstone pizza stone, you will notice a difference.
Using our soapstone pizza stones will not only cut your cooking time by nearly half, but will also give your pizza a unique browning and crisping that cannot be achieved with other pizza stones. Because it is made of stone, when put in the oven, it will heat up evenly and consistently throughout. Since the stone is also nonporous, it will not foster bacteria growth, making it ideal for cooking use. Another great quality of soapstone is that it has no taste, and will not add undesired flavors to your pizza.
"Oh my goodness it was the best pizza we have ever cooked on the big green egg. The crust was so crispy. Far better than any other pizza we have ever cooked on the grill." -Linda H.
"I bought one of the 14" x 3/4" round pizza stones. I make my own dough from wheat and oats that I grind myself. Before using the stone, the dough was too moist; sometimes, the pizza would fall apart. After I started using the stone, the dough was crisp on the bottom, yet still moist on top, which to me makes for a perfect pizza. I then bought another 14" x 3/4" round pizza stone to use outside on my grill. Both of my stones work fabulously. The stones were, perhaps, the one key ingredient for a perfect pizza that I was missing before I got them." -Matthew
