Default My first try at pizza, HUGE success!

Well, after a curing fire program, today was the day for me to fire my oven up for real. Took about 45 mins for the dome to start going white, then about another 15 minutes for me to put my first pizza in.
Getting it in in one piece wasn't nearly as difficult as I feared. And i seemed to manage not to burn any.
Even gave a dessert one a try which was a huge hit with everyone.
All in all a happy result.
Paul

Well then, this is the first and the worst.
It only gets better from here on Paul!

Enjoy.

Most pizza makers find that keeping the fire on the side lets you keep an eye on the pizza edge as it browns. It's also a little easier sweeping sideways than backwards.

Putting the fire to the side will also help prevent shoving the pizza into the coals which has happened to at least one of us!

The pizzas look good but I am intrigued by the whiteness of the dough and the browning on the edges. Your hearth appears to be either right on or a bit hot and/or your dome too cool. The photo showing the fire shows no flames so I will bet on the latter. You actually want flames so they can radiate down and brown/caramelize the top of the pizza and crust.

A nice start...and, as Neill said, it will only get better!

Congratulations on getting it all up and running.

If you're worried about getting the pizza of the peel try dusting the peel with rice flour.
