Pizza Ovens / Re: Pellet ovens - softwood VS hardwood pellets

Though you'd hope that it's set up for a gasifying / secondary burn, you don't really want the products of the resins in your food.

I didn't see whether you are in the US or what region before i hit reply - as a pellet grill guy my advice is to check the dealer locator at bbqlumberjack.com to see if there is somewhere near you that sells Lumberjack bbq pellets and pick up a bag of their 100% oak. The 20lb bag is sold at $10 several places near me, and I've not seen it advertised higher than $13. And these are premium grade pellets - they are just a smaller operation without major distribution deals.

Also check craigslist / fb marketplace / etc -- there are a large number of pellet smoker enthusiasts who buy the stuff by the pallet and sell out of their own sheds.

I specifically don't recommend Traeger pellets. They are among the worst available.

Most other brands are fine.

I'm with you on Traeger being bad.  They use flavored oils.
I get Lumberjack by the pallet.  Last one was 1.2 tons. Split with my son and a friend.
Would be overkill for a pizza oven.
I have not seen Lumberjack locally, but Lowes sells Bear Mountain pellets and Walmart sells Pit Boss pellets.  I think Home Depot is even getting into pellet grill market.

When I have leftover pizza (yes it happens here... small family  :-D), I freeze it with the sauce, and then add cheese and bake it in my electric oven (must be around 3 minutes). The rim is hard and chewy. Maybe by arranging some things it could work (adding oil...), but my first goal is usually to enjoy the pizza evening, not the leftovers.

Is there anything that anyone wants me to test for them on this? it's the 12" version I have and I can try and get some GIFS sorted of the oven as videos won't post right? Couldn't seem to get the GIF to work as it was still to large, unless I post a link to Giphy if allowed? I don't have a youtube account but do have tiktok so could send a link if needed.

I plan to make 4 or 5 pizzas this weekend so let me know if you have specifics and I'll try and get some images/videos to answer the questions.

Dough Clinic / Re: Incorporating palm oil in the dough

Thank you! Good info there, especially the flour-on-a-plate test, to see if it melts.

However i'm finding two types of palm oil, one that's liquid at room temperature and another that's solid, they both come in pretty big batches, like 5 liters or more, i dont know if i should risk it and buy such a huge ammount for a few tests, i'm just curious, how can the same oil be in two different states at the same temp? And which one is better for pizza?

If you want a crispy crust, donít make a Neapolitan. The entire point with a Neapolitan is a fast bake for a soft pie.

If you want a 5-minute pie, just bake it for five minutes. You can get an airy cornicione without making a Neapolitan.

Baking a Neapolitan at high heat at eating immediately can give you some crispiness, but it quickly softens up. You can also try baking 3-minute pies at a lower temperature for more crisp.

It works, some pizzabakers do this and sell the pizza's cold to people with normal ovens. They add the mozzarella at home and finish baking the pizza in a preheated oven for 5 minutes at full power.

Hi Mike,

Did you use the Famag to mix this dough?


Hey Jim,

For this one, yes.

I'm using the Famag for large batches. This batch was 15 pizzas total. It's an awesome mixer but I'm still learning in regards to optimal mixing times for the flour combo I'm using.

For small batches the BOSCH comes out.
