Thanks Tex. It is cooking very well, I did six pies last night for family and five on saturday night for freinds. The dome is going white in about 90 mins-ish. then ive been letting temps stabilize where the floor is around 680-720* and start cooking.

Once the dome is white I am ending up with alot of coals which are taking up alot of room in the oven. Do people remove any or just spread around the interior more?

Isn't amazing how easy it is just think these pizzas would cost at least $20 a pop at a brick oven resturant. Just remember use good products cheese, sauce etc. and the pizzas will be delicious. Looks good!! Congrats

if you need the room, remove them in an ash bucket. I usually pile them up against the side wherever is convenient and keep a fire going as you cook. mainly cause it looks cool, oven doesn't really need the heat at that point. At that floor temp, it really cooks that crust quick i have found. takes about a minute to cook a pie i would guess. I haven't even tried to cook more that one at a time really so room on the floor has not been a problem.

Tex, I agree with the cooking one at a time, when they cook so quick it's nearly impossible to manage more than one. Mine seem to be done in about 2 to 3 min which during that time I'm turning them for even charring on the crust. I now need someone in my family to learn to stretch dough and help building pies.

Thanks Gianluca, I've been ten years making some darn good pizza in my home oven with a brick insert and a two hr preheat at 550* but does not compare to what's coming out of my new WFO. It's been a long road but now serving up some real rewards.

Progress: I have all the slates installed now thanks to my helper shown below. I am now just waiting to receive the ridge cap, soffit and fascia I have on order. Hopefully in time to install this coming weekend.
