3) Olive Oil in My Dough
I have already download the The Pizza Therapy Pizza Book and I am still reading it.
I have discovered many interesting tips. The book is very good!.
I have a question: Do I use olive oil in the dough if I am using a standard oven with a stone pizza? I read some recipes without olive oil in the dough.
Using olive oil in your dough is totally optional.
The last few batches of dough I completely omitted olive oil and the dough was great. If you do omit olive oil use a bit more water.
Using dough made with olive oil is no problem for a pizza stone. Make sure you put some cornmeal or flour on your pizza peel so the dough will slide easily.
You do NOT want to put olive oil on a pizza stone. That is a no no. For more pizza stone tips, go here.
And don't over do the toppings. For pizza, less is always more.

4) How to Use A Pizza Peel
I have a pizza stone but I need to get a peel. I am a
bit leary of them though as I don't know if I will be coordinated enough
to get the pizza on to the stone without sending it flying in to the
depths of my oven!
Also, can I put the stone on my grill? will it damage
it or should i buy a stone for the grill and one for the oven? I would
appreciate your thoughts.
Thanks and Pizza on Earth. . .
Learning to use a peel is like anything else,
it takes practice.
I make my dough on the counter. After I stretch it out, I make sure it
has enough flour or cornmeal underneath it.. It needs to be able to
slide so I can put the peel under the dough.
Then I put my toppings on the dough. I sprinkle a little corn meal or
flour on the peel so it will slide underneath the pizza.
You need to use a quick jerking motion to get the pizza on the peel.
It's kind of like "Newton's Law of Pizza " an object at
rest tends to stay at rest"
You want your pizza dough to "stay at rest" when you slide the peel
Practice with a lightly topped pizza. Practice again. You will get the
hang of it before you know it...
As far as putting your pizza stone on the grill...it should be OK as
pizza stones are made to withstand high amounts of heat. I would check
with the manufacturer.
There are some stones that are specifically made for a grill.
I hope this helps... Let me know how you make out using a peel...
