Trying a new set up for baking tonight
« on: April 09, 2021, 07:17:09 PM »
Ordered up some firebricks to make a pizza oven inside the
kitchen oven. First time playing with them.

Havenít had this much fun with building blocks since I was a kid.   ;D

Will post some more pics as the experiment proceeds later on.

So, first off bought a new peel.  :-D A bit huge for pizza in kitchen oven, but was luxurious having so much space compared to my ages old 12Ē peel. Will play with it a bit, and cut down if too unwieldy.

Worked pretty well for first time. Probably needed more preheat time, but got satisfactory results after an hour and lots of room for improvement next time.

That was my thought at first glimpse, that you would need to preheat for quite a while. I would guess 90 minutes at a minimum.
The top of the pie looks great, but the underside needs help. Thatís ok though. I think getting the underside done right is easier than if you were having the opposite problem.
I said to my little one, "come here so I can change you".
He said "change only comes from within".  :-/

Bottom deck was way too cool. Got such a late start that I only gave it 60 minutes preheat and then turned on top broiler for the last twenty minutes of preheat. Suspect that when I turned on the broiler it turned off the lower element. Started on the bottom deck, but once I realized my mistake, I transferred to the upper deck which helped get it to edible point. Will give it a couple hours warm up next time.

Just a follow up on fire bricks in the oven. Not worth the hassle. Just find biggest pizza stone you can 😉

Everything sounds better in latin.
Omnis pizza 'est bonum.
Every pizza is good.

Making good pizza is not that hard, unless we choose to make it that way.

Oh yeah, me too. Ate every bite. Even my so so results since discovering this site taste light years better than what passes for pizza locally. These bricks werenít worth the hassle. Might not have been the right type after all. Purchased a 15x16 rectangular stone and used my 14Ē stone to reflect heat down from above and results were much better.
