jm,
I had to respond as soon as I saw your pics. Well done indeed. I like the nice brown tint to the dough. It means lots of heat must of been present. All that heat created nice oven spring as well.

Did it taste as good as it looked?

It was delicious! My best yet! I posted a pic of my modified oven. I currently bake at 550 degrees but will next time go down to 475 degrees.

Jim,

Nice job. I especially like the open and airy crumb in the rim. Would you mind sharing your recipe?

Hi Peter,
I will post my recipe at a later time....I should be working now.  I spend way too much time thinking about pizza!

Looks great!  Can you tell me the source of your oven tile?

Hi Guy,
I just went to a local tile outlet and baught 6" unglazed red clay quarry tiles. They were very cheap and work great.  My bottom pizza stone is from a Hearthkit that I bought a while back.  I like it because it is about 3/4 inch thick.  I use a smaller stone for the top shelf.

Jim,

What caused you to discard the HearthKit sides? :o

Hi Wayno,
I lost them...we remodeled our kitchen last summer and I haven't found them since.  The tiles were a cheaper remedy.

JM,

Thanks for the additional info.  I thought there might have been something you found lacking in the performance of the HearthKit.
