“Thin crust lovers you are in for a treat. For exceptional pizza, go to your local Home Depot or Lowes store and buy unglazed quarry tiles. They are very inexpensive. Position your oven rack as low as it will go in your oven. Line oven rack with unglazed quarry tiles (I use about 6 in my oven). Preheat oven at 500 for about 1/2 hour.”
