Before using the pizza maker I used a regular pizza stone. The new apartment I moved into does not have a broiler that works well, so the top of my pizzas did not brown nicely. On top of that, the stone is not easy to handle, picking it up and down is a pain, so making multiple pizzas one after another was not always convenient. The pizza maker has little handles; simply pick the stone up and down and slide the pizzas off. I LOVE the deep dish. I've made a stuffed pizza with the traditional toppings, and a quiche like dish as well. I love the versatility. I highly recommend this product
We normally ordered pizza once a week with about $25 out of pocket after tipping the driver, so this oven will have a payback after two more uses - not to mention we know the ingredients are fresh!
Both attempts were made using pre-made crusts, 8oz of sauce, and moderate toppings. Looking forward to experimenting with new recipes
Most recently I've used a sur la table metal stone in my gas oven, which has been good, but not exactly ecologically friendly with the instructions to heat the oven for an hour at the highest heat....to cook a 5 minute pizza.
Petite pizzeria is fantastic. THE best results I've ever had.
shape your pizza base, only put on tomatoe sauce, put on the two half pizza peels, ease onto the stone, THEN put on cheese etc.
I think pre heating it hotter than 1.5 is better for a browner bottom crust
The first time using it, I would let it cook for more than 10 mins at high heat to burn off the chemical smell.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
We are struggling with this seemingly easy to use device. We are using fresh dough from Trader Joes, but can't seem to transfer the pizza from the wooden paddles to the hot stone without incurring a huge mess. We flour both the wooden paddles and the stone, but the dough completely sticks to the paddles and the pizza refuses to budge. When flouring the stone the flour burns and the whole machine starts smoking (even on a low temp). What are we doing wrong? Are you guys starting with the dough on the stone? Everyone says this is the easiest thing to use - help!
I don't cook with non stick ... Don't think it's healthy so can the non stick part be removed?
I like to put on toppings that can be rather high, so how high can toppings be applied before hitting the top heating element? And does the crust get a nice char flavor
Our first two attempts were really wonderful. On this third attempt the pizza burnt horribly on the bottom and was not edible at all. So now it's got alot of built up crud on the stone. I have a scrubber but won't it get burnt the next time now? Also, any ideas of why it burnt so badly? We followed the same procedure as last time
Two places in the instruction booklet say the dough should be thawed if frozen pizza is used, and yet on 'Style of Pizza Bases' it says that frozen pizza can be put directly in the unit straight from the freezer. Which is it? I use gluten free frozen pizza as well as fresh GF dough, and I don't want to damage the unit
If there is a pizza pan out there that fits inside the unit, can it be used instead of just sliding the dough off the peel? I suppose there might be the problem of the pan warping while exposed to the heat but I don't know about that. How hot does the unit get
However I have an idea you might check... Last night we used ours and when I lifted the stone off to scrape off debris, I noticed that there were some completely charred tidbits inside the unit, near the heating elements. Have you checked there?
The pictures show a red pizza oven, but one of the users posting in the reviews showed a black oven. Like to order as a gift, but would like to know what I'm ordering (to coordinate with other items in the gift...). It doesn't state in the product description, that I can find. Thanks
I purchased one from another retailer and it had the fixed stone which is rather inconvenient for cleaning.
I will like to buy some pizza paddles
Do you sell it how much it cost?
It says not to use anything to clean the stone (water, soap, etc.) but just to scrape it with the paddle. After only 1 use, it has a lot of oil-type stains, dark spots, etc. Is this ok/normal? We did add toppings while on the stone, but were quite careful, so it's mostly from things falling off, I guess. Do I just keep using it, with it getting dirtier each time? Thanks in advance
I'm contemplating buying this product and am wondering how different the results really are from cooking a pizza in an oven. I make decent pizza as it is, but am really looking for slightly burnt and airy crust. Will this device achieve that
