A hot oven is one of the secrets to a great pizza; a pizza stone is another. Preheating the stone in the hot oven means the crust will be crisp and flaky, and the toppings will be perfectly heated and blended. If you don't have a stone, bake the pizza directly on the rack so the heat reaches it without a barrier.
Now go read Tips for Making the Best Pizza, then enjoy these recipes for quick and easy pizzas.
Start With Pizza Crust
