Went to a local granite shop and asked for a scrap piece from a sink cutout (was trying to get round but they do almost every bathroom sink as oval).

The color is apparently called "green butterfly" or something like that since I will simply call it "Pizza stone", but I decided to go dark since I have seen things about dark pans cooking better than light pans.
It is 16 x 13.5 and cost me $10.



Now I just need to get to making a pizza! Unfortunately, it probably won't be anytime soon...

Nice score. I bet that will hold up better than the run of the mill pizza stones you get at the local home store.

Congrats on the score.
My friend works at a place that cuts them and we barter, as in FREE. Very Happy
I've got an 18" oval, 3-15" ovals and a 24x15 rectangle.
That sucker is heavy.
All 1" thick.

Yeah, I could have grabbed more, but had not figured out how much they were going to charge me yet, so I figured I would start with the one. I can always go back since it's only a few miles from home.

Nice! I should have kept my sink cut outs a bit longer. I just threw them out this spring. I have a rule, I will only trip over stuff in my garage for 10 years, then it's to the dump!

I just made a pizza stone last night. Had some flagstone cut for planter tops (2 years ago) Laughing and kept the center cut outs from them. They were 2" thick so I split 'em in half. Use it last night on the grill, and it worked perfect.
