Thread: Pizza stone versus Pizza pan to make Naan in oven

    Default Pizza stone versus Pizza pan to make Naan in oven

    At target online store (http://tinyurl.com/mq8fqz), Pizza stone is
    available for $43.99 and Pizza pan is $9.99 (see left side of the page
    at the link). Pizza pan is available at the target store but not pizza
    pan.

    The recipe I will be using is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vow-kxTPatc

    Should I get the pizza stone or is pizza pan good enough? If I should
    Pizza stone, is there any that's less expensive but good quality
    neverthesless? Note: I will not be making pizza.

    Mandy - Didn't bother looking at your links.

    You can get quarry stones, or paving stones that are unfinished and
    untreated at 1/4 of the pizza stone cost or less.

    If you were to get a stone(s) large enough to use for pizza in your
    oven, why would you need a pizza pan? just use some corn meal and
    straight onto the stone with the pizza.

    You pretty much have to use a stone to make naan. I bought a somewhat thin,
    but adequate pizza stone at our local Walmart for about $15. Thanks for the
    video info. I would use twice as much yogurt, and reduce the water
    accordingly. The yogurt is what makes it. Use a rolling pin only as little
    as you have to. You want your oven temp to be as high as it will safely go
    and you should heat your pizza stone for at least 30 minutes before you
    bake. She may have used broil? The naan was browner on the top than it
    should be.

    My 13" diameter stone LIVES in my little tiny apartment size electric
    stove oven. It takes longer to pre-heat but it really helps keep the
    temp from dropping 50 degrees when I need to peek at baking stuff.

    I think the stone would be closer to how they bake it in restaurants
    (in the tandoori clay oven), so I would try that.

    I second that brick idea someone mentioned. I remember years ago that
    Julia Child instructed something similar for baking pizza in the oven
    in lieu of a stone.

    What do you mean by that? Reduce water as more yogurt is used?

    I think she switched to broil to bake Naan but preheated the oven by
    leaving at 500 degree for 20 minutes. At least that's what my friend
    said I didn't understand what the lady in the video said.

    What's the corn meal for? Naan is made with flour. You should havew
    watched the video at least to see the title.

    I don't think so. It would, however, give you a bit more heat at the top in
    the 2-3 minutes the naan is baking. If you get your oven as hot as it
    absolutely go, short of the cleaning cycle, and you heat your stone, I
    don't think you need to broil.

    RE: yogurt water ratio. If you're using more yogurt you should use less
    water. You want to keep your liquid/flour ratio the same with either. Naan,
    as the lady says, has a moist dough, somewhat like ciabatta.

    If she wants to make naan, why wouldn't a large cast iron skillet be

    I was thinking that if she already has a CI skillet, she could heat
    that in the oven and save herself $40. Some people go out and buy
    kitchen gadgets that they use once and never look at again.

    Delivery pizza lasts an hour in your house? It never has a chance to
    cool down here. ;-)

    I have a 16 inch square unglazed tile I bought at Home Depot for under
    $2 that works really well in the oven for any purpose of mine.

    Too thick for me because they are pavers. BTDT - takes way too long
    to heat up. Get 6 inch tiles if you can buy them separately anymore.
