Second bake in new wfo
« on: April 20, 2013, 04:01:44 PM »
Hi fellow pizza enthusiasts!

Last weekend I baked for the first time in my new oven: http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=24542.0
Its a cheap oven I bought directly from a factory in Portugal, its around 800 USD including shipment to Denmark where I live. The edge of the walls are around 15 cm - did'nt measure exactly.

Today I used all the advise I got in http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=24542.0
-I fired up the oven 8 hours prior to use.
-2 hours before baketime, I removed all the small coals and ashes, in order to prevent too much insulation as last time I had issuses with floor temperature.
I then build a new coal deck with "large" wood pieces, and during bake I put on smaller bits.


No temp problems today  :) My floor was 850F - 930F during the bakes. The walls were even hotter.

The dough was as last time the same as Craigs, with one little change; I did double the amount of ischia, and fermented the dough in 24 hours total (balled up right away). I placed the doughballs in boxes and left them our in my outhouse. Day temp around 60F and night temp around 40F. It prooved all right.

Baketime: the first on the picture was 44 seconds(!) - it went so quick it almost overrumpled me. The rest around 1 minute or so.

Enough talk - here are some pictures, including our appetizers:

And more pictures..

Overall I am really happy with my result today. This is why I changed my iron oven to a brick one.
Even though I have a long way yet, this was way better than last weekend, where I was pretty disappointed really.

What do you think?

PS: Thank you ALL for the great advice I have gotten at this forum  :D

Thanks! What was the model of your oven, there seems to be many different variations available. Do you remember how much the oven cost and what was the
shipping charge ?

Damn, one of those could be mine 8)

Morgan: The oven itself was not more than 190 euro plus vat in total.
Freigt to Denmark was more.
We were a bunch of people who bought a whole container. I Think only one is much more expensive.

Csafranek: dough recipe was of tx Craig with little changes witten above.

All: i also shot a little video

Awesome!! That pie in the video looked so soft and tasty! Nicely done, p.elkjaer. What kind of tomato are you using? It has a deeper, darker red color than what I get around here. And how's the taste?

EDIT: Oh, and you gotta get one of these. So much easier to use that the big peel.

I guess you haven't made a stand just yet :-D Seems to be working very nicely. Only concern i have is the time you have to heat it before baking a pizza. Small pizzaoven like forno piccolo classico is ready less than one hour.

Mr P.

You have clearly wasted your money on that oven! As we can all see from the pictures you have posted it is NOT designed to cook pizzas!

You clearly have too much perfect leoparding on your pizzas, and the undercrust is too uniformly cooked with no excessive char. Additionally, your cornicione are too puffy and light...

I'm sorry that you are so disappointed.   :-D

Kudos, my European Pizza Colleague, on the auspicious start to your WFO pizza journey!

Really man, why don't you just quit right now and save yourself all that frustration of trying to learn how to cook NP pie in a WFO....sheeesh!  ::)

I am simply overrumpled by your pizza cooking rig.  8)
