Definition: Oven Stone

An oven stone is a flat, heat-resistant surface typically made of ceramic or natural stone that is used in a pizza oven to create a hot and even cooking surface. It helps to absorb and distribute heat, resulting in a crispy and evenly cooked crust for the pizza.


  • “The oven stone helps distribute heat evenly throughout the pizza, resulting in a perfectly crispy crust.”
  • “Before using the pizza oven, make sure to preheat the oven stone for at least 30 minutes to ensure a properly cooked pizza.”
