I don't have oven racks in my oven. Don't ask. What I need is a pizza pan/oven rack in one to cook my pizzas on. I figured if I just had that one thing, I could finally eat like a human again. Basically, the idea is to make an oven rack but in a solid sheet of metal form instead of the normal way. Then, holes permeate the whole thing just like a pizza baking pan. Thus, you get the effects of the oven rack and pizza pan without having to shell out money for a new pan. This idea could be sold to the oven makers to be included in new models, or sold at retailers to add to an existing oven. The idea could also be applied to other types of baking as well.

       I want to know why there are no racks in [seank]'s oven.

I'm glad that's not ValSpeak: 'I could finally eat, like, a human again.'

       I've tried the telephone method, too, but I always end up having to use the oven to get the phone hot enough. And if I'm going to do that, I might as well put the pizza in the oven.

       I think Waugsqueke is right, a seperate piece would be better. Oven racks are as they are because it allows for maximum heat distribution in the oven, that's heated from below. If you block most of it off, even with the small holes, it's not going to work as well as a normal one.   

       Steve, seeing as how a real baking stone is solid granite, I don't think any normal kitchen's oven will be able to hurt it...900F degrees <the only solid number I was able to find in a desultory search> isn't anywhere near what granite melts at. As long as you don't yank it out and plunk it into cold water, anyway...   

       <net.rummage for the melting point of granite...> Hmm. I might actually be wrong. Again, in a simple search, the only numbers I could find were 1150-1650F, so it might be possible.

       <grin> No, not me. Steve DeGroof wondered if a pizza stone would survive a cleaning cycle in a self-cleaning oven <The type that heat up to 900 degrees to, in theory, burn everything off; in practice, they irrevocably bake it into place.>. I thought it was a silly question, granite is solidified lava, and no consumer oven is going to manage anywhere near enough heat to damage that. I discovered that the oven seems to heat up to 900F, and that under certain circumstances, granite <what type or circumstances were not specified in the website> can melt at 1150 degrees, which is close enough to 900 that it might be possible to reach by accident.
