@rkrider- Thanks for sharing your pics even though they weren't up to your standard of perfect. You're the first person to post chicago thin I believe. They still look good. Only thing that was strange was the pie where the heat was so uneven.
I am guessing it was not centered on the stone?
I centered it on the stone pretty well. Before putting the pizza on the stone, I was trying to get some reliable benchmarks, like what temp the pizza stone was actually at. Holding the IR gun at a steady spot on the stone as it rotated, the temp fluctuated from 530-590. Not sure why. Maybe the rotating disk under the stone isn't uniform and transferring the same amount of heat to the stone. Possibly the stone isn't uniform and isn't picking up the heat from the flame.
Could have been a couple of other things. I don't have a sheeter, so I roll it out by hand, and I am not the best at making sure it's all that uniform. I'm thinking the thinner sides got done a little faster than the thicker sides. Actually gives me a chance to see what the difference a 64th of an inch will make on the dough when cooking.
Another observation, while the first 2" of crust was cracker like, as it moved toward the center, it became very soft and almost gummy. It was cooked, and I didn't detect any raw taste to the dough, I would have liked it to be cooked more in the middle, which would have led to the outside being more burned than it was.
I do use a bit of sugar in the dough, and I'll probably try it without any sugar in future tries. I'm also thinking may be trying the perforated pan that I've always used in the oven. Sort of lifts the edge of the pizza a half inch off the stone. Let the middle cook first.
Where does everyone have their rotating disk set at? Mine was laying on the front ledge when I received it, where it wouldn't spin, so I moved it up so it was about a 1/4 inch above the ledge, where it would spin freely. In some of the pictures on other setups, it looks like i could put it up to more like a 1/2" or higher.
So much to try, and so little time...
