Ditto to no glazed side.

We have a Pizzazz Pizza Oven in our camper. It don't take up much room and works great. I never had any luck with pizza the regular oven.

The distribution is caused by the stone preheating inside the oven and because it acts as a barrier between the oven flame, which is intense, and your food. I don't see why glazed side up or down would have a significant impact.

So, in the absence of hard scientific data proving I should do otherwise, I would follow its instructions and use it with the glazed side down.

I bought a used ceramic kiln about a year ago. Along with the kiln came a few dozen rectangular ceramic "blanks" about 1/4" in thickness that were used to test glazes, etc. on. They fit perfectly in my TT oven. They're unglazed on all sides. I actually wrapped it in aluminum foil before putting it in the oven because I didn't want anything to drip on it. Been working fine....

This is a nice idea but we boondock most of the time and only have power when running the generator to charge the batteries. I make my own pizza sauce and dough but haven't tried making my own Mozzarella.

You can't make things idiot proof, you can only make them idiot resistant.

Yep - I don't think it matters glazed or not. The aluminum foil is a good idea.

For what its worth, the stone in my oven is unglazed, too.

Where in the oven does the stone go? On the bottom pan, blocking some of the holes? What about broiling?

My oven has two racks above the flame. I place the stone on the rack right above the burner.

Broiling is cooking by direct radiant heat and requires a burner on the top of the oven. Never had one that did have a top burner but maybe larger trailers have full ovens. Broiling is just upside down barbecue and I do that on my campfire or grill.

Thanks, thats what I thought.
I broil with my oven, using the broiler pan I got from Suburban. I place it below the burner.
My question is, if using the stone while broiling, has any effect one way or the other.

Pizza stones are great, but since I didn't have one I just used some 3"x3" unglazed stone tiles to cover the oven bottom. We tested it out making tater-tot casserole. It wasn't as baked like the home oven makes it, but we are still experimenting with it.

For those of you that do cook with your 1'x1' ovens, what are you cooking in there?
