PIZZA or BREAD STONE where can I buy one from in Switzerland

Hi,

trying to buy a pizza or bread stone, found loads of online shops all over the word except here in Switzerland

Can anyone point me in the right direction please, even if it is an online Swiss shop ?

Many thanks

Re: PIZZA or BREAD STONE where can I buy one from in Switzerland

We just discussed this today on the 'Pizza in Switzerland' thread. I took a tip from another EFer and went to Coop Bau+Hobby and bought two pieces of "schamotte" or fire bricks to put in the oven...basically, terra cotta tiles. About 40cmx10cmx1cm each. Cost me 15chf. Seemed to do the job well.

Coop Bau+Hobby sells a pizza stone in the grill area for 129CHF, but that seemed a bit much. You can get them on Amazon for 30-50.

But I like my home made one just fine so far.

Thanks for the Info
I havnt seen them in Coop but will look again, but yes, very pricey from what you say,
Yes seen them on Amazon but really expensive to send due to the weight

I bought a big round one from Migros for my BBQ grill. Makes cooking a pizza on the BBQ easier now that the pizza doesn't fall through the metal bars...

Not sure about regular Coop, but Coop Bau+Hobby in Oerlikon has them. 2 minutes from train station.

Backing Stone: Where to find or cheap alternatives?

Baking is a passion and my kitchen is being overrun by enough stuff as is, but I'm on the search for a baking stone for my oven. In German, they're called Brotbacksteine and are amazing for pizza and breads with the extra bit of crispiness. However, I can't seem to find any for the oven here. I've found a few (that are somewhat overpriced) for the grill, but this is meant for indoor, not outdoor use.

Any fellow baker out there have alternatives? I'd like to buy one in country, because they are heavy and somewhat expensive already, so the customs fees are going to be a fright.

There are some alternatives by using unglazed quarry tiles, but I have no idea where to find them.

Any clue?

Hello,

is this what you are looking for?
At 35.-chf I hope it's not too expensive for you.

They really are very good aren't they, I don't have one myself but a good friend of ours does, so when it's time for a really good home-made pizza, I invite us to theirs


Here is the link, in German only though.
