Since I moved out of NY I've been forced to make my own pizza. I'm getting pretty good at it, but I just CANNOT get a good crispy bottom crust. I'm using a round metal tray, good quality from a restaurant supply store, and still no crunch. I have a thermometer, and I can get my oven up to 500. I think it's time for a pizza stone.
Recommendations? I don't want to spend a lot, but I want something good. It'll be getting plenty of use!
