The only thermometer I've ever had was an ordinary oven thermometer for retained heat baking. Five bucks at any housewares department. You only want to put it in after the fire is raked out and the oven has cooled. Experience and the amount of carbon on the inside of the dome will tell you a lot about the right temperature for pizza.

Sears and Harbor Freight both sell infrared thermometers as well. I think they can both beat the Overstock price.
