    which oven is the best choice for Neapolitan pizza . is the casa the lowest internal dome ? does the opening meet the needs of pizza or is it to big?

    Re: lowest dome height

    I'm a novice, just beginning my oven...but my understanding is that a low, flat ceiling is slightly better for pizza and a high, round ceiling is better for everything else: bread, roast, turkey, whatever.

    Again, as a novice, my understanding on the opening is to shoot for an opening height 63% of the interior dome height. Width is relatively unimportant from a thermal point of view, you just want it wide enough to manipulate tools in the oven without being so wide that you are wastefully evacuating heat.

      I'd say the Casa will cook pizzas pretty well. I don't have one, but maybe someone with one will chime in. Or James will swoop in with some info.
