How to Clean a Burnt Pizza Stone If you rely on your pizza stone for making pizza with an amazingly crisp crust you might be worried to find burnt food on the stone. Since you do not want to set off a smoke detector the next time you use it remove as much of the burnt food before you clean the surface of the stone. Although the stone might be stained it will be all set to use for your next pizza night. Let the pizza stone cool completely. You can easily burn yourself if you try to clean burnt food off of apizza stone. Instead just leave it in the turned offfor at least a few hours so it is cold to the touch.Use a scraper to remove as much of the burnt material as possible. Take a metal spatula or bench scraper and scrape it against the burnt on food to loosen it. Keep scraping and wipe the burnt bits into the trash.Scrub the stone with a bristle brush or scouring pad. Although a spatula or scraper can remove large pieces of burnt on food there might still be burnt spots that do not come off. Take the stone to your sink and runwater over it while you scrub with a sturdy bristle brush or scouring pad. Rinse the loosened bits away with thewater.Scrub on a baking soda paste to remove stains from burnt on foods. To naturally lighten the stains stir 1 tablespoon 14 g of baking soda with about 1 teaspoon 4.9 ml of water. Spread the paste on the stone and leave it for 5 to 10 minutes. Then scrub the stone with your bristle brush before rinsing the paste off withwater.Avoid using soap to clean the stone.
