This Himalayan salt block pizza recipe was created because I received a package of Flatout Pizza Crust and was at a loss what to do with it besides make a regular oven baked pizza.

I had just purchased the salt block and really wanted to try it out.

I figured one of the easiest possible recipes would be pizza and I was right.

Here is a short video that shows you what I did.

Temper The Salt Block Before You Cook The Himalayan Salt Block Pizza

As for the salt block (affiliate link) – well – it took some doing because I had to temper it.

I tried to temper it on my stove top but it started to crack.

I moved it into the oven and set the oven on the lowest setting for 30 minutes, then I turned the oven up to 350 degrees F for 15 minutes, then I turned it up again to 400 degrees F.

I did sit my salt block on a cookie sheet, just in case it broke.

The salt block was fine.

Once it began to sizzle you could see the water (affiliate link) bubbling up.

After an hour, I went ahead and cooked the pizza on top of the salt block.

I then turned off my oven and the salt block (affiliate link) is sitting in it cooling.

I will take it out tomorrow.

I really do love my new salt block and am enjoying the difference in the ways foods I cook everyday taste.

My First Himalayan Salt Block Pizza Using Flatout Pizza Crust

I made my first pizza on a Himalayan salt block (affiliate link) tonight.

Once the salt block was tempered, I turned the oven up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

Once the oven came up to temperature, I checked the temperature of the salt block using a laser surface thermometer (affiliate link) to make sure it was also 450 degrees.

I then laid the pizza on top of the salt block and cooked it until the cheese melted, approximately 10 to 15  minutes.

The crust was oh so crispy – like a cracker – which is the way I like it.

I used the Flatout Thin Crust Flatbread Artisan Pizza (affiliate link) crust – and this was the first time I made pizza using it.

Cooked on the salt block, I liked it.

When I cooked the pizza in the oven, it was not crisp enough to suit me.

The salt block put a crispy edge on the pizza crust almost as quickly as I laid the crust on top of the salt block (affiliate link).

I really enjoyed the pizza cooked that way. 

The second pizza that I cooked in the oven was not as crisp as the first one and I did not enjoy it as much.

I really like thin, crispy pizza crust.

I Used Frozen Flatout Pizza Crust For The Himalayan Salt Block Pizza

The Flatout Thin Crust Flatbread Artisan Pizza crust in Rustic White was good, but had a very distinctive taste that I couldn’t quite identify.

I had froze my Flatout Thin Crust Flatbread Artisan Pizza (affiliate link) crust for a little over a month, so maybe that was the issue.

I’m not sure since this was the first time I tried it.

The product thawed very nicely.

I was pleased.

It was not mushy once it thawed and the size of each crust makes it an ideal item to make a quick snack or a meal for just one person with.

Keep some on hand in the freezer (affiliate link) and make yourself an after work snack or your kids an after school snack.

I put cheese, sauce and pepperoni on mine but you could make a veggie pizza or whatever kind you liked.

I keep shredded cheese and mini pepperoni in the freezer (affiliate link) as well.

It only takes a few minutes for these items to thaw enough to use.
