Having just got my pizza stone, I am rushing around trying to find pizzas that are really well suited to 'the stone'.

This one uses the grill, a pizza stone and the oven so it's as close to a proper pizza oven as you can get.

Chef's note

If you don't have a pizza peel use an upturned plate, dusted with cornmeal and some deft handwork to slide the dough onto the stone.
