Making Stuff is Hard-The Pizza Stone

I know what you are thinking.  Wow I am an amazing chef to get that pizza in the shape of a triangle.  How neat. 


No, not neat. 
I finally attempted to use the pizza stone my mom bought for me.  What I did not realize was just how hard it is to transfer your pizza onto the stone once the stone is already in the oven (heating up).  I do not have one of those paddle things so I literally sat/stared/attempted to move my pizza dough (which was round and very pretty) onto the stone in the oven for about 20 minutes.  I almost cried.  Once I finally got it on, it was in this sort of triangular blob with sauce and cheese falling off the sides instead of the beautiful round pizza I had before I moved it.

It still tasted ok though.  (I mean who doesn't like the taste of fresh melted mozzarella?  Plus pizza is definitely one of my top 3 favorite foods.)

Have you ever used a pizza stone?

PS-Mo, this was not the craft fail attempt of your bday present.  I had many fails this weekend.

That pizza might not be round but it definitely looks delish. I guess B needs to buy you a paddle...lol

I do not have a pizza stone, but given my propensity for tears, Its probably a good idea that I don't get one.
Though I have heard that if you liberally sprinkle cornmeal on an upside-down cookie sheet, you can transfer the pizza easier...but I Have no idea where I heard that - I could've just pulled it out of my ass...

It's like abstract food art!

My pizza stone came with a paddle-thing. However, it's still pretty hard to get the pizza off it and onto the stone in a pretty, round shape.

It doesn't matter that your pizza was triangular. As long as it tasted good!

I wasn't even paying attention to the shape of the pizza, but rather the AMAZING CHEESE. Seriously, delish.
