Pizza stones

I'd like to know whether the terracotta (Hastings) or the "marbley" (Stevens & wherever) type pizza stones are best.

I'm seriously tempted on the terracotta, just cause it looks cool, but thought maybe some of you lovely people have tried them out? ? ?

Thanks in advance for your answers (if you've got a pizza oven, would you be able to answer Cottagerose's question about them - I didn't want to jump in there, but did think the two are possibly related questions).

My old terracotta one got dirty from the cheese spills but it was good to cook with, never had a marbly one

terracotta? I take it you mean the matt stone ones? They are the more traditional style rather than marble.

Cookessentials, I did look to see if you had any stones :)
We have a friend who has an outside (built) pizza oven, but can't justify that, hence me thinking about a stone :) (don't need more appliances in the kitchen) :)

Pizza stone as per the Stevens complete with cutter at around $32. 95. I have not seen terracotta ones, you could ask what sort of warranty they have. Being NZ made is good. I see the Stevens one is their own brand which i would hazard a guess is made in China like all their own brand stuff. We aso get the American "Best" brand, however for those ( they are square) you would be looking at approx $133 and the European beech pizza peel is just under $100

Someone told me that you can buy the teracotta plant stand. You know the type I mean. It's from the garden center and they go underneath your pland pots. Said they work just the same and are much cheaper.
