to cook the top. When top is bubbling, pizza is done (about 10 - 15minutes),

The tools: The pizza stone approximates the radiant heat of the brick-lined ovens in professional bakeries. It is preheated so that the pizza is immediately cooking without rising. The peel is that long-handled spatula (a very large one!) that professionals use to slide the unbaked dough onto the preheated pizza stone. Both a pizza peel and the stone are excellent tools.
