Hi all - Can't wait to learn more about Neapolitan pizza. Specifically looking to find and develop recipes to cook at home in a gas oven -- and determine how far / what quality that will get you before you have to move to a wood fired oven to build the perfect Neapolitan pizza.

If your favorite wood fired restaurant is a 10/10 score, what do you think is the max score you can get baking one at home in a conventional (convection) gas oven - 6? 7?

Can't wait to learn more from you all on the site.

All the best,
Dave

I love pigs. They convert vegetables into bacon.

Dave, Welcome to the forum. If you have a highly modified home oven it is possible to bake true Neapolitan pizzas at home.See the oven description here;

http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,14506.0.html

Most folks are not going to modify their home oven to that degree and will not be able to achieve temps in the 800-900F range.

There are some great looking pies being done in home ovens using various cooking surfaces and other oven tricks, make the best pie you can with what you have and then if you want other styles that need more or different heat take an alternate approach.
Many possibilities out there. All of them discussed here.
