Pizza Stones are for More Than Homemade Pizza

Making homemade pizza starts with a great crust. A pizza stone is one of the best options for getting a crust that’s crispy, chewy, and puffy all at the same time. But it doesn’t stop there. How about an easy chicken recipe, a breakfast ring that can be dinner, too, and the best nachos for an easy taco night? Or you can make personal-sized pizzas and let the kids add their own freshly chopped veggies. 

Here are five recipes for simple dinner wins for your pizza stone every night of the week. (Yes, two of them are pizzas. We couldn’t help ourselves!)

Pizza Stone Meal Set
This recipe goes from the fridge to the table in about 30 minutes. Our take on North African harissa sauce has tons of flavor with simple spices. And, you can bake and then broil the chicken all on one unglazed pizza stone made on our StoneFusion stoneware. Finishing the chicken under the broiler gets the skin nice and crispy.

Breakfast for dinner is one of our favorite menu themes. And this breakfast ring makes enough for a big family to have seconds! You can arrange the crescent rolls easily on a round pizza stone, and the stoneware’s density keeps an even temperature for baking that perfectly flaky, golden crust that’s never soggy.

This recipe is a great option for shaking up your typical taco night. Your pizza stone will keep the tortilla chips crunchy and crispy so they can hold up under layers of melty cheese, pinto beans, pickled jalapeños, and diced tomatoes.
Mile High Nachos

Of course, you have to use your pizza stone for pizza! But rather than your gold-standard cheese and pepperoni pie, why not try a white pizza? Instead of marinara, opt for flavorful sun-dried tomatoes on layers of Parmesan, mozzarella, and ricotta cheeses. Hello, perfect pizza.

Free-Style Pizzas

Try this no-recipe recipe. Turn leftovers into pizza. Use pitas, flour tortillas, English muffins—anything that’ll hold sauce, cheese, and toppings. Then use whatever you have on hand for toppings. Think pesto, cooked chicken, and mozzarella or a taco pizza with nacho cheese sauce, leftover taco meat, and salsa. Bake on your stone in a 425°F (215°C) oven for 8–10 minutes. The kids will love it!

    Those “rings” bake up beautifully on the stone as do the chicken bites you featured years ago. Almost anything bakes wonderfully on the stone; cinnamon rolls, baking powder biscuits, calzones, Homemade pockets using the the stuffed sandwich maker, and I could go on and on. Every kitchen needs this stone!
