First pizzas in new pizza oven!!!! (With pRon)
 
Hi everybody, and a Merry Christmas Eve to you all! When I last posted, I had just completed the dome of my new cob-style pizza oven:

I've been letting it dry out and have been building fires in it every day for almost a week now. There have been some cracks (which were expected), but it's holding up pretty well.

Anyhow, yesterday I got the temps up to almost 800 degrees, so I decided I would push it again today. Of course, I couldn't resist...so I had to try making a few pies while I had it fired up. I knew I would!

Burn baby, burn!

Swept out and ready for pizza!

First pie just in:

After about 20-30 seconds:

Done! This was an Italian sausage pie, my favorite:

Here's the second one...white pizza with olive oil, minced garlic cloves and mozzarella:

Here's the bottom of the white pizza:

Well, I'll call it a success! Both pies were delicious...although I need to work on my skills working at temperatures that high...I got over 1100 degrees at one point. I had to let it cool before I even started putting pizzas in. Not a bad Christmas Eve...I hope you all have a great Christmas. Thanks for looking!

Wow, looks awesome. In the first pic, is that a crack in the outside of the dome?

tom72 12-24-2012 09:28 PM

Yeah...there's a crack in the very front of the dome behind the brick arch. It goes almost halfway back across the oven. I had a seam there when I put the clay in that I didn't see, so when the dome shrunk (shrank?), that was the weak spot. Thankfully it's set now and not getting bigger. I'll be able to patch it, along with the other cracks I have, then go over it all with insulation and finishing plaster.

Glad you'll be able to repair. Those pie's look fabulous. I want about 10. What time can you deliver! Forget it, I'm on my way over!!!!

Awesome pies! And great job on the oven.

When I first stacked mine up, I thought you were supposed to cook at 1000F. Making pies used to be mad dash coz they would burn after a minute! Until I did some research and found out that things would be more manageable at a little lower temp.

Can't wait to see your finished oven. Would you care to share your dough recipe?

cool looking oven you got there. I am planning to build an outdoor kitchen and next year and may have to incorporate one of those in the build.

Very nice looking pies you got there.
