What Kind of Pizza Stones Would You Recommend For a Home Electric Oven?

What kind of pizza stones would you recommend for a home electric oven? 

 

 

I was thinking about getting this Dough Joe 5 piece set.            http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GH0R7TY/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_3?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A15JEFR7YO4F7O

 

I never made pizza at home before.    I used to make it at Picco Lisimo's restaurant in Fort Lee, NJ, where we had a regular real pizza oven, fired by gas.

Pizza stone

There is a post in this thread to make a sort of oven inside a oven by placing stones on the deck and again on an upper rack.
The idea was to stabilize the temp but I think it may be a good solution for your problem.

About the Lego type stone you linked to......I immediately thought of the hassle cleaning up the cornmeal or Durham wheat that will sift thru the cracks between the pieces.

I use a cast iron pizza pan as a stone but those look nice.parchment paper beats corn meal for ease of pizza in and out of oven.

Should you get something made of man-made material, make certain that it's rectangular shaped and not round.  Round limits your baking possibilities.  I get my baking stone for both bread and pizza from Fibrament.

when cooking things like this in my oven i use regular half thickness firebricks from the hardware store. they are something like 4"x8"x1". I have two wood fired ovens on the property and am used to how they cook, one is cob and one is brick. i have used pizza stones in the past that were built for pizza supposedly but the 1$ firebricks perform the best for me. they are cheap and easily replaceable also.
