Pizza on a Hot Stone

Mushroom and Cheese Pizza on a Hot Stone

There is little to say about this pizza except that it was thrown together rather hurriedly, for two people, to nibble before they went off for yoga.  The dough was spread out on a stone that had just baked a bread, and so was very hot.  The oven didn't take long to preheat, as it was already very hot from the bread.
Homemade tomato sauce, tofu pepperoni, mushrooms, black olives, cheddar and mozzarella cheese

The failure came from leaving it in the oven a trifle too long.  The upper ingredients need about 25 minutes to bake at 500 degrees, but the crust on a hot stone does burn at that length of time.

It was nice and crispy, where it wasn't totally burnt.  I do like that in a pizza, but this was a bit too much.

Notes to Myself
  • Don't roll out your pizza dough on a hot stone.
