1.5 hours prior to cooking put stone in oven and bring to temp....I am partial to 522 degrees (dont know why but I have good luck with this number, maybe cuz 47 is a lucky number and when you add 5/2 you get 7 and 2/2 you get 4, yeah I am wicked smart like that!). 15 min before baking I will turn oven to convect mode at same temp I shape pie at this time on floured surfaced, allow to rest 5 min and then get desired shape.
