Nice looking pies. I just fired up a Sunjoy last weekend that I purchased a few weeks back. Seemed to work well for me. Now I am just trying to figure out my dough recipe since it has been 20 years since I was baking for a living. Are you using a NY style dough or Neo?

I think you would have to use neo dough at these temps.  When I was just starting out with my WFO, I used a regular dough in it and the bottom became carmelized and extremely burnt, which later I found out was due to the malt that it's those flours.  The caputo 00 pizza flour (or those like it) does just fine in my WFO at those temps, no scorching but nice charring. 
My friends say I am the best pizza maker there is.  But I know better.

I've been using King Arthur bread flour mostly. Just started experimenting with adding some Whole wheat and buckwheat flour.

I have only been using the Caputo 00 flour lately. Working on a cracker crust using KAAP where I pre bake in the oven, load on the goodies and finish bake in the WFO. Have a Christmas party coming up and am not sure I want to be doing Neo pies for 40+ people. Thinking the half way done dough would make my life easier so I an enjoy the people.

Interesting idea about cooking halfway. I just figure people socialize with me while I'm cooking. I've had 18 people over and fed them pretty smoothly.
This next bit is not really wfo related, but I used my sourdough starter to make sourdough boules in the oven for the first time!

Nice looking bread. I did the same this week with some extra starter. Baguette's, two rounds and sourdough pancakes this morning.

Very nice!  I love look of that brioche too, from the last pic on reply #24 (that is a brioche right?)

Not sure which photo you're talking about, but I've never made a brioche. They're all sourdough. We actually have a Wolf steam convection oven, and it's great for making bread. It's kind of funny cause we put it in when we renovated our kitchen four years ago on recommendation from a chef friend, and barely used it cause we didn't know how. Then I read about how steam helps get a nice crust on bread and we gave it a whirl.

Another sourdough, this was my best one so far. Great crust!

I think I got this thing dialed in now. Made three pies tonight. Son ate his usual red pie with pineapple and black olives by himself. Daughter had a red pie with pepperoni. Ate the whole thing minus half a slice. Wife and I had a white pie which is pictured below and I fired a NY steak in a cast iron skillet in the WFO. Crusty on the outside and medium rare in the middle. Came out perfect. Now, to figure out how to get the fire to kick off faster and reduce the smoke that the wife hates.....

Looks great!!

I just figured out that Bialys have very similar dough to pizza! Just made a batch and they are pretty easy and delicious.

Looks like stuffed bread. What is it?

They’re called Bialys, and it’s a relative to the bagel. It’s a soft breakfast roll with a bit of onion and poppy seed in the middle. Dough is very similar to pizza dough. They’re delicious and lighter than a bagel (no fat or sugar).
