I have built a square WFO of similar size and having trouble with the pie being too close to the fire/coals. This is causing the cornice to burn before the top is cooked, even though the dome is white hot
No, I don't think I have any photos of pizza cooking in action, I'm usually too busy shovelling them in and out.
We usually find that cooking 9" pizzas works pretty well and sometimes I remove half the coals before cooking and maintain a fire on the side.

My dome is 28" and I have the same problem sometimes; a fire brick or two between the coals and pizza as a shield works well.

After one minute or so you should rotate the pizza 180 degrees. But this applies for all WFO's too, not just small ones.

I put a little wall of firebrick between the fire and roasting meat when I am cooking without the oven being heated to the degree where it will maintain the cooking without a fire. It is only used when the timing is out but it works (along with a bit of alfoil). Never for pizza though, just keep it moving.
