Baking a pizza on a pizza stone is a great way to get that crispy, crackly crust everyone loves, but transferring that pizza dough from a peel onto the stone can be tricky. Toppings tend to slide all over and you could end up with a big mess in your oven.

This “Better Way” reader tip involves parchment paper, something every baker has in her kitchen.

    OR... put COURSE grind cornmeal on the paddle before adding the dough. It acts like ball bearings and the dough slides onto the stone
