From classic pepperoni to rich béchamel to polarizing pineapple, we all have a favorite topping or sauce for our pies. But no matter how you slice it, everyone knows the most important pizza component is the crust. To get a restaurant-level crispy, chewy crust at home, you need a pizza stone. Made from ceramic or steel, the surface absorbs and concentrates your oven’s heat, resulting in the gold-bottomed crusts of your dreams. And Amazon Prime Day is just the time to snag your own: This shopper-loved pizza stone is only $40.
To buy: $40 (originally $50); amazon.com
The Heritage Black Ceramic Pizza Stone has more than 1,000 perfect ratings and is one of Amazon’s best-selling pizza pans. Its 15-inch ceramic stone surface is wide enough to accommodate your biggest pies and features a nonstick coating for easy cleaning. Just a simple scrub with soap and water will remove the toughest baked-on cheeses.
Shoppers confirm the Heritage Pizza Stone is the easiest way to pizzeria-worthy pies, with many calling it a “game-changer.”
“Wow. Perfect crust, golden brown, slightly crisp,” one said. “My wife commented that our pizza tasted like it just came out of a professional restaurant where they cook with an open-fire oven.”

Others rave about how well made the tool is, with several commenting that it’s incredibly durable. “It can stand high heat and not crack,” a user wrote. “The pan I purchased before this one only lasted in the oven twice before it cracked.”
Plus, this stone comes with an extra-sharp cutter for slicing up your pie. The duo would make an excellent holiday gift for your favorite home chef.
While the Heritage Pizza Stone typically costs a reasonable $50, right now it’s just $40 thanks to Prime Day. But the price slice won’t last—add it to your cart now before the sale ends tonight!
