One of the most important accessories you need for baking pizzas and breads is a baking stone.
Because you want your Big Green Egg to act like a hearth oven. The BGE provides all the ceramic surfaces you need except for the surface the pizza or bread sits on.
It’s nearly impossible to find good baking stone in the stores today. If they do carry a stone, its usually so thin and small that it’s most likely going to break sooner or later due to the high heat needed for baking pizzas.
Not only that, but they don’t retain heat well because they are thin. This particularly shows up when you bake more than one pizza, one right after the other The heat required to bake a pizza will cool the stone down, so you need to wait a while for it to re-heat.
You also want a stone that can retain the heat because that is what makes for a crispy crust and well baked interior. the heat from the stone needs to be sufficent enough to penetrate the pizza or bread. The stone needs enough mass in order to meet this requirement.
I went hunting for the ‘perfect’ baking stone. It’s not easy since you can’t walk into a local store, whether it’s a kitchen and bath store, a big box store, or a store that sells grills and cookers, and see but one choice if they even carry the product…and that one you really don’t want to buy.
I decided I needed to do some research. One product stood out above the others. For one thing, the company that manufactures these baking stones also supplies pizzarias with their baking stones. For another, some manufactures of fancy pizza ovens include this company’s stones with their ovens.
The name of this baking stone is called Fibrament-D. I bought one that fit my larg BGE. It’s 15 1/2 inches in diameter and is 3/4″ thick.
After you heat it up for about 45 minutes to an hour, it retains the heat even if you make multiple pies or breads in one baking session.
It’s really a great product whether you bake pizzas or artisan breads. You’ll be very happy with the finished product just like I am.
