Friday's Food for Thought

Kitchen Essentials - The Pizza Stone

There are some things that have made cooking so much easier or have made the end result so much better.  As I come to rely on items that have changed my life in the kitchen, I want to share them with you.  One such item is my pizza stone.  I just don't know how I enjoyed home-cooked pizzas without it!  The difference it makes in the crust is astounding.  The pizzas are evenly cooked and the entire crust is just the right amount of crispy throughout.  

You can also use your pizza stone for more than just traditional pizzas!  It is a great tool to bake artisan breads at home.  Most pizza stones are equally at home on your outdoor BBQ, so you can enjoy a warm summer dinner cooked outside.  They make a great surface to cook veggie burgers on the grill!

I purchased my pizza stone from William Sonoma and it is the only one I have ever used.  It has become a much loved cooking tool in my house.  What is a tool that has made your cooking life better?
