Saputo stones are handmade by Italian artisans in Naples Italy, the birth place of the Neapolitan pizza. The majority of pizzerias in Naples use these same stones inside their pizza ovens. Saputo stones ('Biscotto') are the only stones available that have the unique quality of being able to cook a pizza at 850°F for 60-90 seconds, without burning the bottom of the pizza. These stones are able to do this because of the unique mineral content of the alluvial clay that is used to construct the stone. Each stone is fired in a wood-fired kiln to exact specifications. All of this imparts the stone with exceptional heat retention and moisture absorption. No other material performs like Saputo biscotto from Naples. We are proud to partner with Saputo, as the sole North American distributor, to bring their renown quality to the United States & Canada.
Saputo is an Italian family business that has been making pizza stones for generations in Naples. Each Saputo Biscotto pizza stone is made by hand using a type of clay that exclusive to the region. This specific clay coupled with Saputo's old world construction method is the key to producing the world's best pizza stone.
After the forms are air dried, they are loaded in a wood-fired kiln for firing. Once the stones are removed from the kiln, they will display their signature terracotta color. Saputo is dedicated to the old world tradition in the manufacturing of their stones because this process continues to yield the best results, as it has for generations dating back to the origin of pizza.
