Homemade Brick Oven Pizza

I am a big fan of pizza. Around these parts a heated discussion can arise out of asking someone what their favorite pizza place is (Rosas for life!!) but there is nothing like making a homemade pizza. Over the summer, Tommy and I love to make grilled pizza, but last week I tried out my pizza stone for the first time. I got the pizza stone for Christmas from my cousin Patricia, but it kind of got forgotten about until recently.

I honestly had never heard of a pizza stone before getting it gifted to me, but I am sooo happy that I got this. After reading up about it online, I found out that pizza stones are used to mimic the cooking that would occur in an earthenware oven – something like a brick oven, resulting in a crispy crust.  Let me tell you, it gives off phenomenal results.

I bought dough from my local pizzeria and made three pizza stone sized pizzas – two regular with mushroom and peppers and one BBQ chicken. I had some help in rolling out the dough.

All three pizzas were incredibly crispy and delicious. The crust was very much like a brick oven pizza. This was the first time that I attempted to bake a pizza in the oven and was surprised by how good the pizzas came out. Not to mention all three pizzas probably cost me less than $10. Try to get three brick oven pizzas for that price!

Do you ever make your own pizza? Thick crust or thin crust?

    Those pizzas look great! I've always wanted to use a pizza stone. We actually registered for one so I may get to try one out someday :) I love both thin and thick crust. Lately I'm more of a thick crust fan.
