Better picture. Oh by the way. I forgot to say I added 8 bags of 4 cubic feet of vermiculite once the wonder board was up. I covered the entire inside. I can't wait to see how much heat this holds now.

Final coat of stucco is on!!!! I'm dying to make pizzas in here! I may have to go for it this Sunday! Stay tuned.  I'm going to eventually paint the stucco the same color as my house and stone the bottom portion of the oven base concrete blocks. But I am done for a while. Now it's time to get cooking!

Made pizzas the first time in the new oven! Only picture I could take was the last two pieces of the Nutella banana and powdered sugar. This oven rocks!

Well I actually got to paint it due to the weather warming up
this year.  Next year stone or brick, haven't decided yet.

The first one was goat cheese, sea salt, cracked black pepper, olive oil and prosciutto. And of course you know the second one  ;D

Great job on the pies and the oven looks super!

Can you tell me a little about your heat up and cooking temperatures?

How long was your heat up?
What did the FGM thermometer indicate as the core temperature?
What was the floor temperature, etc?

thanks,
Mitch

Thank you Mitch! The heat up time is about two hours. I didn't install the thermometer. I actually have gotten to the point that when my oven goes clear (no black spots) I know it's ready to cook. I think I have only used my infrared once since I have had the oven. I will check the next time and let you know the floor and dome temps. Please ask me any questions you may have.
