Neapolitan Pizza and G3 Ferrari (modified) electric oven.
« on: June 25, 2012, 11:00:29 AM »
Hello guys, first of all, sorry for my bad english  :-\
These are my pizzas and my little G3 Ferrari Pizza Express electric oven (with some important changes).

All pizzas were made by using Caputo Pizzeria flour, 65-66% water, salt 45-50 gr/L and 0.5-1 gr/L of fresh yeast.

"Puntata" (that's how we call in Italy the 1st fermentation in mass): from 15 to 20 hour at controlled room temperature;
"Appretto", or "apretto" (that's how we call in Italy the 2nd fermentation in balls): from 4 to 6 hours in wooden boxes.

Balls weight from 190 to 210 gr., diameter about 27-28 cm, bake time 50-70 seconds.

...and this is my little oven.


This is a short baking video. Note: the dough was just a test and the electric oven was not fully modified (pizza baking was not so good).

Hello! Yes, that's the oven we're talking about. The ovens were made in Italy in the early 80's till now from G3 Ferrari. I have 3 types of this oven. The 1st original model (made in italy), a more recent version of the original red colored "Pizza Express Napoli" (which I modified as well as the grey colored one), and the grey one. The grey colored version was made in P.R.C, the red version was made in Italy. They're similar.

The most important mods I made are:

1) double heat element on the top of the oven;
2) a "deflector", which protects the center of the pizza and distributes the heat on the edges of the pizza;
3) reflective aluminum on the back of the heat elements, which reflects the heat on the stone;
4) rotating stone.

I called this mod type "M8-R" (because you can mod these oven with basic and less invasive changes). The oven power is up to 2000-2100W, instead of the original 1200W. The "consolle" allows to manage separately top heat elements and bottom heat elements.

Here are some pics of my other 2 G3 Ferrari Pizza Express ovens:

Ha, that's cool!  I like all the tweaking you did and it looks factory.

It was about 17-18 C... but now in Italy (particularly in Rome) we have high temperature (minimum 20-22 C in the night and maximum 37-38 C) so I solve the problem just by adding more salt and less yeast.

Where did you get the second heat element to the top of the oven ? Maybe i should just buy another oven and use the heat element from that...

It's the hard part, 

You'll need a 220v one for the bottom, the two round on top are 110v connected in serial.

try the service center at Obh Nordica or in Holland ask Italia4you
