Both of your latest bakes look fantastic, I like the colour and the cornichone size for the size of the pie - another inspiration.

Todays fave: Chives from the garden with Buffalo Mozz. Whoever invented this Pie - it's a to die for topping in its perfectly balanced simplicity.

That was member John Della Vecchia's creation.  He doesn't post much anymore.  He does/did the most lovely pies.  I miss his work!

Here is the original: http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=21400.0

IMO, possibly the all-time best original pie ever posted in this forum.

Pizza on a beautiful summer day in Germany! Nothing special, just my usual Pies but delicious whatsoever. 65%/Caputo Pizzeria/4%Dolcedo SD/2.9%Salt. Very soft, beautifully fermented dough. Nice!

Don!
Beautiful pies! I made my first pies in my oven last night. Im going to start a thread for progress reports! What do you use for you're tomato sauce? I used tinned San marzanos with fresh basil then added salt to taste and roughly blended with my hand blender. My wife thinks it's too runny.
This was my first pie. I didn't have time for a long slow ferment so I just did a recipe off of forno bravo website.
Do you have problems with soot? I used a mix of kiln-dried Birch and heat logs. But when I add the Birch it creates alot of soot. So when I add a Birch log o have to wait for a few minutes for it to burn off. Then cook a pie. The heat logs I can't recommend enough!

Don, once again beautiful pies, once again jealousy !

Once again, questions to selfishly wring out your knowledge to help my pursuit of your pizza quality and consistency.  I have difficulty still with consistent baking unrelated to wine consumption . . . My last bake was first pie just about where I wanted it, the second was blonde, though I had added some wood after the first bake. Perhaps, grasping at straws, the size of the wood I am using has a bearing. The pieces I cut range from 3-4 cm and less and are about 30 cm long. I am using Garry Oak and it is very dry and burns well and cleanly. I wonder if larger section makes for more consistent heat. Yes, now that I pose the question, I can change that in a couple of days to try it out, but ask for your experience.

Cheers, Thanks for your time

Tomatoe Sauce. I use different kinds of italian Pelati. San Marzanos are great but I had the biggest success so far with Delmonte brand. I add a pinch of salt and sugar to taste and carefully blend them with a stick blender.
Your Pie looks good but a little pale. I think you need to preheat longer/hotter and you need more flame atop the Pie. I don't think Birch is a good wood for Pizza. It has this oily sootiness to it. I can't recommend beech enough if you can find it. It grows everywhere here and burns very hot and clean if dry.

Icelandr, thanks for the nice comments. I am using beech wood, it is known here for burning very hot and clean. The logs I use these days are about 20-30cm in length and about 3-6cm in diameter too. Usually when I finish a pie I put one or two on and reduce the air flow with the door so they are burning but are not done already when I am launching the next pie. When they are burning with alot of flane and the front thermometer is in the 420-450 range I am good to go. If not I add smaller pieces before launch and quickly add some air with the PP Blow pipe. Actually the worst pie is usually the first I do if I haven't waited long enough. They get better bake by bake as the oven heats up and is saturated more with heat.

Thanks for your advice. This was my last pie, the flames were rolling for the rest . I only did a 4hour dough ferment, my son decided he wanted pizza when I got in from work at 2pm. So made the dough at 2 and by 7 the pizza was cooking. I lit the oven for half hour in the middle then half hour at the back. My oven is 70cm deep by 40cm wide. Im waiting for my IR thermometer to arrive so I was guessing temps. I think the oven was around 450 because my thermometer on the Door was off the scale! I don't know Wether to try the fire at the side rather than across the back wall.
Thanks for your advice man.

New pies today. Great dough. 67% hydrated Caputo Pizzeria. 3% Dolcedo SD, 26 Hour ferment at about 21-22*C.
Super hot oven. These were about 40 second bakes. Creamy, moist and tender.
