Bakers pride convection oven
« on: August 06, 2013, 11:27:48 PM »
There is a full sheet pan convection oven in my area for sale. The oven holds 5 sheet pans. What are the thoughts in using to cook multi pizza at once? I want a some what crisp bottom when the top finishes? Anyone ever try? I assume cook on screens?

I have a stack of southbend convection ovens (we use a stack of blodgett 1000's for pizzas).   They are terrible for pizza.  We use them for baked goods like cookies, brownies, pies, etc.  Out of curiosity I tried to do pizzas in them using perforated pizza pans, a baking stone, and regular sheet pan.   All came out terrible.  Walter

Convection ovens are not pizza ovens as they provide little bottom heat that is required to properly bake a pizza. In a home setting you can make them work by using a heat sink under the pizza, but in a commercial application this will not work. Like Walter said, leave that oven to what it was designed for, baking cakes, cookies and some breads.
