SY,

How do you bake your pizza? You have a special oven, or a pizza stone? Just curious since I got into DIY pizza recently...

How would I *like* to? With a wood-burning oven, of course!

First, it's essential to have a pro-quality pizza stone. Most of the cheap cooking store versions are not much more than toys. Second, gas oven. I've never gotten the best results from electric. Third, highest temperature possible. Most ovens only go to 550F. Consideration of safety would NEVER allow me to suggest bypassing the interlocks of your oven and using the self-clean cycle to get things up to 800F or so. No, I can't POSSIBLY suggest that- it would be WRONG. In any case, you want a long preheat, at least two hours.

We're already planning our woodburning oven project. That will go out on the back porch.

We used to a short walk to a VPN pizzeria, and we never got sick of it. It's about the only pizza I'll eat now. 90 seconds at 800F? Oh yeah.

Yup
You know it's done when the mozza just starts turning burned.
I like it better the next day if there's any left.

PS Some people in NY get the knives out when pineapple and pizza are in the same conversation.

The best pizza in the world was on Webster Avenue in the Bronx, across from the El Dorado Bar, the second best was the little stand under the 3rd Avenue El at Fordham Rd. in the Bronx, the third best was some little place in Sienna.

#3 son tried putting a pizza oven in the back yard, but the township didn't like the idea.

You need the best water to make the best pizza, that's why NJ pizza is inferior to NY pizza.

No, that's still pizza, though I wouldn't eat it.
