Cold oven to to Pizza in 60 minutes!

I wanted to find out how quickly I could make Pizza starting with a cold oven. I might need to do this in an emergency (yes, the need for Pizza is sometimes an emergency!)

So last night I made a large than normal initial fire and stoked it well for 45 minutes before pushing it to the side.

I was able to make the first pizza in less than 60 minutes! And it was good!

I also learned that this is not nearly enough time to saturate the bricks with heat, and by the time I made my last pizza (the fourth) the bricks had cooled quite a bit and it took about 4 minutes to cook instead of 1-1.5 minutes.

I won't be doing this often... but nice to know that I can!

Good to be prepared! But what about the cold beverages required for such an emergency???

Thanks KB and Eric!

Ok, next photo will have fire! Unfortunately it only gets dark at around 9.30pm right now in NorCal and by then all the pizza is eaten and I am thinking about bed!

Congratulations, it looks great. I am sure that you will enjoy the fruits of your labours and end up with the ultimate 'fire in the oven' picture as well.
