Hello to all,
I´ve been lurking as a guest for quite a while getting ready to open a retail pizza outlet here in Iquitos, Peru. There are only two places to buy pizza here and both are terrible. Dough tastes like cardboard, lousy sauce, etc. Which is surprising because both places use a wood fired oven.
I´am having three ovens welded up patterned after the 2stone pizza oven. My problem, and the reason for this post, is stones.
There is nothing I can use here for a stone. No roads lead to Iquitos and somethings are impossible to buy here. Here, everything is glazed ceramic tile. No granite. No marble.
I checked at the local graveyards for granite used in headstones. They don´t use granite or marble for headstones. They are made from poured cement.
No pavers. No nada ...except for one item.
I can buy, very cheap, steel plate from 1/4 to 1 inch thick. I know it´s heavy. I can deal with that.
Question...can I use steel plate for a stone? If so, how thick should it be?
I´m thinking maybe 1 inch on the bottom and 1/2 on the top.
Thanks in advance to all replies.
