You can make your own cheap pizza stones. We have heard that people are simply think a travertine stone can be used as a pizza stone. We have tested this idea. And we want to say, it works. We are not sure if it is completely food save yet. We are investigating this aspect. But travertine stone is not glazed and does retain heat. We have used it for the last week. And found that it works great. We created a video demonstrating our use. The stone takes just 30 minutes to heat up and does retain heat well. On Saturday we left the stone in our oven and left it on for most of the day (making pizza after pizza) and it did not crack. It is also easy to clean. We bought ours at a local tile shop (Best Tile Buffalo at 2800 Walden Avenue, Cheektowaga, NY 14225) for $8.98 plus tax. It was in their closeout section. We do not think that a travertine stone will work well on the grill. We are going to test that next! When we bought the stone, the saleperson that assisted me said that customers on occasion come into her store and buy these stones for the purpose of using it as a pizza stone. I replied, "Oh, Really." She did say that it probably will not last for long. Well we are going to see and will let you know . . .
