Stoneware is perfect for baking pizza and Polish pottery IS stoneware. If you haven't baked pizza with a Polish pottery plate before, give it a try. You will be pleased.
We know of at least three large Polish pottery plate forms that are perfect for a traditionally sized pizza: a 14" round Ceramika Artystyczna plate, a 13" round Zaklady plate and a 12.8" round Manufaktura plate. Also try one of those large rectangular trays - they are super for baking a huge pizza and then serving squares of pizza to a crowd. And, if you enjoy a deep dish pizza, consider a rectangular baker. Finally, try using a 10" or 11" dinner plate or even smaller dessert plates to make smaller pizzas. Dinner Plate Pizza Pan or Dessert Plate Size Pizza Pan
At home we have a giant round 13" Zaklady pizza plate that we use about once a week for pizza (and have for years) - it is just as beautiful as it was when we got it. It gets a real work out - but this is Polish Pottery and it's durable and cleans up nicely. When not used for pizza, it becomes a handsome serving tray! Polish Pottery Pizza Pan
Pizza is a very subjective matter, so we won't give you a specific pizza recipe. But here are some general guidelines for making a large round pizza from the perspective of the care and use of Polish pottery:
VERY Lightly coat a large (approximately 13") Polish pottery plate with cooking spray. Place 1 half-baked packaged 10" pizza shell on this large plate (or use a dinner roll crust prebaked until it is half done). Lightly brush the pizza shell with olive oil and spread evenly with your favorite pasta or pizza sauce. Sprinkle with grated Mozzarella cheese and arrange your favorite toppings evenly on top. Sprinkle with basil, oregano & Parmesan cheese and whatever else pleases you. Place pizza and pizza plate in COLD oven. Turn on oven and gradually bring pizza and plate together up to 375 degrees F. Bake at 375 degrees for 12-18 min. until brown and bubbly. This will serve four reasonably hungry folks or two very hungry folks. Enjoy!
