Ok so last night I had a pie at a trendy brick oven pizza joint. Being the pizza nerd that I am, I chose to sit near the pizza oven to observe the baking process. The head pizzaioli, who is quite proud of their product, claims they bake that their pies in a 800 degree oven. To me, that's along the lines of a Neopolitan. But when I looked at the thermostat on the outside of the oven, it was only at around 680 and fluctuated a few degrees here and there. Not being familiar with commercial ovens, I didn't know if that's the temperature of the deck, the dome, or the ambiant temperature in the oven. My pizza which was about 15" cooked in approximately 4 minutes (I timed it as it went in). To me that sounds like a little long of a bake time for a pie baking at 800. Shouldn't a pizza cook under 2 minutes in an oven that hot? At any given time, they had 3-4 pizzas in the oven so I don't know if that would account for the longer bake. Also, what does the temperature reading on the outside of commercial pizza ovens actually measure? Thanks.
