I don't think there is a hot/cold issue if you start with a small fire and gradually build... it takes 3 hours or so to get the oven ready and the cooling process takes 24 hours or more after you are done. Others can weigh in on this, but I say enjoy it..
Winter time firing still sounds a bit scary. I think if I do I will maybe warm it up with a light bulb during the week then day before a small fire and then the day of the party I'll fire slowly.

I appreciate you guys weighing in, and any other input is welcome.

It requires some prep, but it is worth it.

First I shave some good aged parm very thin, quite a bit actually; there is no sauce, so you can't see it on the pie, but it is well covered. Shave some red onion and sweat it with salt a bit. Roast some fresh pistachios (I break them up as I do so) in garlic oil.

Cover the dough with a liberal dose of EVOO, then the cheese, the pistachios, the onions and some fresh rosemary. Cook then give it a swirl of good truffle oil.

Try it!

That looks like an awesome pie, very interesting. I'm not sure if I made it if there would be any pistachios left for the pie!
