Just got a pizza stone and have been playing around makin' pizzas and things, Kitchen logistics prevent the use of a peel and in my eagerness to make a pizzarightnow! I improvised a few options before remembering that parchment paper exists...so it's gotten a bit grungy with very baked on cheese (also forgot to take it out of the oven for a few days so it's really baked on) . Question is what's best way to clean it? Will it absorb soap, do I just heat it again and chip away at the bits? or How about the color it is now kind of tan with splotches...does that count as seasoning?
(It's Oneida brand and came with limited instructions)
