Pizza Oven Cranks up to 1000 F. +

Everybody knows that to cook great pizza, you need a hot oven. The hotter the better.
My electric stove at home is barely nudging up to 550 F. +, give or take a few degrees.

I recently got an email from someone who claims his pizza ovens will heat up to 1,000 F.
Now we're talking!

Now we're taking. His name is Willard Gustavsen and here is what he had to say"

Albert: Have you been making pizza long?

Willard: I started baking my own pizza 5-6 years ago, but I didn’t start making my own dough until a couple of years ago. I would buy the unbaked pizzas from the local pizzeria and bake it myself in a make shift wood-fired oven, and finally took the plunge a couple of years ago and started making my own dough and sauce.

Albert: How did you come about to develop your pizza grill?Tell me about the process...

Willard: As a kid growing up my dad would bring home pizza from an Italian pizzeria that had a wood-fired oven. It had that special taste that I came to associate with wood fired, hearth ovens. That’s what got me started. Early on I had some very ill-fated grill baking attempts. I quickly moved on to building myself a more traditional wood-fired oven.

The pizza I was able to bake was great. Nice puffed up edges and a little of the charred taste. At first I would fire up the oven more for special occasions. But gradually I would make one or two pizzas during the week also. With just the right wood (dry hardwood split thin) I could get the oven pre-heated in about 1-1/2 hr. Eventually I cut things down to the bare minimum so that finally with a dual chamber oven I was able to cut the heating time down to about 45 min.
