I had to translate Spartifiamma.... it translates to burner, so not sure what you mean. I think you're talking about the metal stand that holds the wood and the "L" shaped heat diffuser that sits between the fire and the pizza. No, I didn't like using those as it seemed to prevent the crust from charring around the edge. We made about 8 pizzas in the oven, after the first pizza we took out the diffuser and baked without it.

Steve, please share with us the dough you used with the Pizza Party.
Picked up some wood this AM, should be ready by delivery time, LOL.
Still have to make a pad, I was going to use some old bricks for a stand but they may go to a wishing well instead.

Mark, I used 100% Caputo, 62.5% hydration, 3% salt, and 1.5% IDY (essentially Craig's recipe).

454 grams (1 pound) Caputo Blue
284 grams (10 ounces) water
13.6 grams salt (about 2 teaspoons)
6.8 grams IDY (about 1 teaspoon)

That gives me enough dough to make 3 balls at 250 grams each.

Wow .... this looks really interesting.   I spent some time watching the videos on their website.  Any idea what is used for the insulation on the top?  How hot did the external aluminum skin get during cooking?  Did you get any feel if you could "dome" the pizza at the end of cooking to finish the top more if you needed?

Looking forward to your next report!!

look at reply #38 shows doming: http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=30871.20

I have read in the literature that the outside stays cool enough to touch.
The insulation question has been asked in the above thread and is discussed in the videos. Doesn't specifically say what the material is, at least I could not find it. Does describe it tho.

Lots of hidden info on the PP site.

Thanks Mark, I wasn't aware of the other thread on the 70x70.  Good info.

I'll certainly be excited to hear/see more hands on results from both you and Steve.

I'm also interested in the "Mobile" feature of using this oven.  Although I'm wondering how heavy it is with the brick floor inside?  How would a person go about packing up and going home when the oven and floor are still hot?

Hmmm. since I haven't received mine yet I can only tell you what I did when I had to move hot BBQ smokers. Better yet, drop Francesco an Email @banchi86@inwind.it
I am sure there have been many owners who have moved the oven after use. After all they made it lite to be portable.

My wife and I were easily able to carry the oven without the stones installed. I think the oven is 80 pounds without the stones and about 110 pounds with the stones. If you have a pickup truck, just fire up the oven in the bed of the truck. Also, I think the oven is pretty well insulated, so moving a hot oven won't be a problem... I'll take some temperature readings of the exterior this weekend.

Ok, I used the oven again last night, I'm really loving it.... oven was ready to cook pizza in 30 minutes.

During the initial firing, the exterior of the oven got up to 250 degrees. After the flames settled down and I was working with hot coals and low flames, the exterior of the oven dropped to about 160 degrees and stayed there for the remainder of my baking.

More photos. This is a great little oven. I think I used too much wood, I was getting 60 second bakes and the cheese was starting to burn a little. I'm still new at this, so I'll try less wood next time.

Pizza Margherita made with Caputo blue and Ischia starter, had a really nice flavor.

Nice pics Steve.   What diameter of pizza are you cooking?  What would you say the largest comfortable size of pizza you would go with in the 70x70?

12" pizzas. The door opening is 14" so you can't go much larger.
