With the wife out of town for the summer, the kitchen is essentially undefended, so, I am baking my own meals from scratch for the first time in my life: https://c1.staticflickr.com/3/2902/14662162576_e8acbbbba2_b.jpg
But, the breads aren't coming out the way I want them to: https://c1.staticflickr.com/3/2903/14685124395_7b8346e3a8_b.jpg
They're not being cooked evenly it seems, even at 425°F: https://c1.staticflickr.com/3/2920/14662116166_1d15dfbd30_b.jpg
Neither are the pizzas, even at 550°F in the electric oven: https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5594/14498661247_f4fedcfe12_b.jpg
But, mainly, the pizza crust isn't cooking like I want it to: https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5568/14498515859_cfc0be4c0a_b.jpg
While, the pumpkin breads seem to be coming out just fine: https://c2.staticflickr.com/4/3882/14498516069_238b8df40b_b.jpg
Of course, I could blame either the recipe or the cook: https://c2.staticflickr.com/4/3904/14684823122_a46ba5cd5d_b.jpg
But, first, I want to see what happens with a pizza/baking stone: https://c2.staticflickr.com/4/3905/14684691032_1e04f447d7_b.jpg
Problem is, I don't have a 15x17" stone & these need to be cut: https://c2.staticflickr.com/4/3835/14682739504_599cbf9d99_b.jpg
It's not a big deal to cut what I have, but, they're kind'a thin to start with. And, a single slab would fit right on the bottom without having to fit on a rack.
So, while I was baking, I was just wondering if you had any good ideas for a cheap thick 15"x17" baking stone?
