PizzaParty widen door opening
« on: January 04, 2021, 08:06:12 AM »
I would like to widen the opening of my PizzaParty to Better fit a 33 cm peel.

The new ovens come with a wider front, but it seems that it can only be retrofitted at the factory.

I considered taking an anglegrinder to remove most of the back edge from the lower part of the opening. Has anyone tried something similar, or have an idea whether it would work?

There was someone who did this with his Bollore somewhere, made a thread on his new oven. He took an angle grinder to the front.

yes, deep down in some pizza party thread there were some pictures, some from a forum member that did it themselves and even some from Simone, showing a similar custom order they made at the factory

Looks good. Thanks a lot.

I am surprised that cutting away the inner rim left a gap at the side of the door.

I have the wood fired one. I think that the gap would make it difficult to manage the airflow and the fire.
