first time using a WFO
« on: May 08, 2012, 02:41:50 AM »
I haven't posted anything since my initial post so I thought I'd post a pic of my first pie using a WFO. I have been baking in a home oven for a few years now and finally got a chance to use a WFO through the in laws. I have got to say, you WFO owners have it easy  :-D.

Since I use always use a starter, the bakes turned out great. I just upped the hydration to compensate for the higher heat. The owner didn't let the WFO get too hot because he said higher temps burn his pizzas(low hydrated dough I guess), so the floor temp of this bake was about 700 or so. I'm going to talk him into higher temps for our next bake.

That's a great first pizza there! What style or brand of oven is this? Maybe next time you could take a couple pictures of the oven too.
Oh, and EASY? Whats easier about lugging and splitting fire wood and shoveling and disposing of ashes all the time? ;) 
Of course, I'm just kidding. I love that stuff! ;D

Looks great, and fairly charred for 700F... What did the bottom look like?

What starter and flour...?

Thanks for posting...!
