Thanks for the info on the oven. I partially modified mine this weekend. There is a spring that when heated locks the door in place. I removed that but have not taken your step to allow the oven to not shut off when the latch is unlocked. But for the first pizza, I made with the a preheat of 80 min on 'oven clean' mode (man was this thing hot!!!!), it turned out amazingly well except for one thing...the crust burned a bit too much on the bottom (I didn't mind but my wife wasn't diggin it). We're tallking only about 2 min in the oven! I had put the pizza stone directly on the floor of my gas oven. Do you have any other suggestions on how to get the heat but not burn the crust.
The pizza I made - which I will post here soon - is called the "Green Lantern' and is famous at a pizza place here in Cincinnati called Deweys.
1. Tomato sauce base
2. Roasted Garlic
3. Mozz Cheese
4. Artichoke Hearts
6. Pesto drizzled
7. Goat Cheese
This is by far the best gourmet pizza I've ever had. Pics soon.
