Making Pizza With a Pizza Stone and Pizza Peel

Making Pizza With a Pizza Stone and Pizza Peel: One way to ensure a really great pizza crust is to use a wood-burning oven that reaches a temperature of at least 600°F, a feature most home kitchens lack. Fortunately, you can transform your regular oven into a pizza oven by baking directly on a hot pizza stone.

Making an Omelet

Once you master the technique of making a simple, folded omelet you will be able to whip up a healthy, satisfying meal in minutes. Here are the basics:

Use 2 eggs to make an omelet for one serving, 4 eggs to make an omelet for two. Never make an omelet with more than 5 eggs. If you are serving four people, make two omelets back to back. They’re that fast.

You’ll need a heavy 7- to 10-inch nonstick or well-seasoned skillet with low, sloping sides and a comfortable sturdy handle that won’t get hot and a small flexible spatula, preferably a heat-resistant rubber spatula.
