Here's what Rebecca Richmond, our E-Commerce Culinary Coordinator, has to say:
“When this pizza stone arrived a few months ago at Milk Street, I was pretty excited to try it. It has a great-quality thick stone, a metal frame with handles to support the stone and it has a metal plate at the back of the frame to form what I’ve dubbed a ‘pizza backsplash.’ The backsplash solves a pizza problem of mine.
When making pizza at home, I’m overly ambitious with my pizza peel. Time after time, I shove my pizza in the oven, only to have the edge of it sag over the back of my pizza stone, dripping melted cheese, sauce and toppings onto the bottom of my oven, ruining my pizza and smoking up my kitchen. But this pizza stone’s metal frame—in addition to supporting the stone and providing handles for easy maneuverability—has a backsplash to prevent pizza spillover.”
