Pizza stones, or baking stones, are a great tool to have in the kitchen for baking breads and pizzas. They’re large, flat stones that you put into your oven before baking. The stones, which can be made out of a variety of materials, retain a lot of heat and help give your pizza that perfect crispy crust in any home oven. Pizza stones tend to be quite large and difficult to handle. Some are designed with handles to go from oven-to-table for serving, while others are simply too heavy and bulky to pull out of the oven when they’re still hot.
Emile Henri’s Mini Pizza Stones are a set of smaller pizza stones that deliver the same baking power as their larger counterparts, but in a much easier to handle format. They’re made of very durable Burgundian clay, which is fairly lightweight, and are finished with Emile Henri’s proprietary Flame glaze, which gives the stones a beautiful look and easy to clean surface. Each stone is just 10-inches in diameter, which allows you to make pizzas to serve one or two very easily, and the molded handles will give you a good grip when you take them out to serve. The set of two will fit easily into most ovens, although they can also be used one at a time as long as you leave them in the oven to preheat before using them.
