Pizza by A

My daughter A made Hawaiian pizza tonight. I had some purchased pre-baked pizza crusts in the freezer, and she added pizza sauce, cheese, ham and pineapple. Altogether, a quickly assembled Friday night dinner.

I've got a pizza stone which I bought at the Hunter Hill Fete last year. This is a posh neighborhood in Sydney where the Fetes are out of this world! Pizza stones are heavy round flat ceramic tiles that you preheat in the oven at a high temperature. Initially I made the mistake of putting pizzas directly on them, thus staining and burning the surface as they cooked. Tonight I tried these flat metal trays which worked fine. Next time I'll try using baking paper which I read about in a bread baking cookbook.
