Hi folks..Hope you dont mind me making a new topic away from my 5 minute pie/Broiler thread.I just did not feel like it belonged there after I broke into the 4 minute range the other day,and was aiming even lower.I did not expect to be able to make a pie this fast.
I manage to get a 3 minute and 20 second pie out of my old electric oven,using the broiler to aid me in the quest of lower baked times.Stone temps were 620 degrees on the bottom rack,and would not rise anymore,even after an hour or heat up time.
I used a digital kitchen timer,that counts down from 4 minutes that I set it to when I launched the pie onto the stone.I let the pie cook on the stone for 2:10 seconds,and the rest cooked 1:10 seconds under the broiler.
When the timer hit 3:20,I removed the pie from under the broiler.It was a bit done again,so I believe I can have a pie done in the high 2's or a bit lower 3 minute range.I wished I had took the pie out at 3 minutes flat,but I just went by gut feel it would be done under the broiler by the 3:20 second mark.
Earlier,while cooking,There was a few seconds of time,I removed the pie from the oven,placed on a screen and put it back under the broiler to finish.I let the clock run during that time.So it was out of the oven a good 10 seconds at the most.
Here are some more pics.They look a lot like my other pies,since I'm doing the same recipes of dough,sauce,cheese,etc.
