PIZZAS

The directions below are for fresh (refrigerated/thawed) pizzas. If frozen, still bake at 500 degrees, but for 8-12 minutes.


I, the chef, personally like to cook my fresh pizzas for 6 minutes then 1 minute on broil, and if frozen, ~8 minutes then 1-2 minutes on broil. Look for bubbling/browning cheese and golden bottom to check for doneness. 


OVEN:

Preheat oven to 500 degrees

Keep pizza on parchment paper

Slide onto heated pizza stone or middle rack

Bake 6-8 minutes

Remove, slice, enjoy!


GRILL:

Place pizza stone on cold grill

Turn grill on high heat for ~10 minutes

Adjust to medium heat/flame

Keep pizza on parchment paper, slide onto stone

Cook 5-6 minutes

Remove when bottom of pizza is browned and cheese is bubbly 

Slice, enjoy!


*Pizza stone must heat at the same time as oven/grill. A cold stone placed in a hot oven/grill will crack. 

COOKIES

*For best results, thaw cookie dough before baking

WITH A PIZZA STONE:

Preheat oven and stone to 375 degrees

Place cookie dough balls 2" apart on a piece of parchment paper

on top of a pizza peal or cutting board, slide onto stone

Bake 9-10 minutes

Pull parchment paper and cookies back onto peel/board

Enjoy warm!


WITHOUT PIZZA STONE:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Place cookie dough balls 2" apart on parchment (or foil) lined cookie sheet

Bake 9-10 minutes

Remove and let rest on hot tray 2 minutes

Enjoy warm!
