    As the tittle suggests
    lately I have been baking bread and things

    Any way when cooking the bread
    it seemed wherever I placed it in the oven
    The bottom seemed slightly undercooked/soft
    With the top overcooked/hard

    Got me to thinking
    if I place a thickish 1/2to1inch floor tile
    On the oven shelf
    bring it up to temperature
    place the bread dough on the tile
    will that aid the cooking process
    And firm up the base of the loaf

    I have had the same thing with pizzas
    Why this very evening missmanagement
    had a thin crust pizza
    The centre was soggy and outside firm
    Cooked as the instructions required
    But I still had a complaint :Eeek:

    I am on a fasting day and was [STRIKE]forced[/STRIKE] asked
    To try it for my opinion which obviously counts for nuffing
    And yes the centre was soggy

    So what's the opinion will a floor tile give me a stone bake as such
    And do you think the tile will break

    As always thanks for your replies

    They had pizza stones in Aldi on offer not long ago. Am not sure if a tile would stand the heat, but for it to work it would need to be a fairly thick one.

    My fave bread book suggests measuring your oven then buying a paving stone that will fit !!

    It WILL be heavy but it will do the job.

    To help stop the top overcooking place a pan of boiled water in the bottom of your oven when cooking bread and also spray the dough with water just before baking

    We use a pizza baking tray to get a nice crisp bottom on our loaves.
