    Pizza making

    I recently purchased a wood fired pizza oven which has the capability to reach 900 degrees. Since our june trip got canceled I am trying to duplicate the pizzas i have had in St barts in the past. The most memorable is Andys margarite pizza. I have experimented with a number of crusts but have not been able to duplicate it. I would be surprised if i got any response to this post but is there anyone out there there would have any input as to this pizza making dilemma and offer a recipe ? thanks

    I can't answer your question but what pizza oven did you buy?

    I'm considering the Ooni.

    Dennis, I got the Ooni , I was considering the Ooni pro for 599 but ended up getting the smaller one for 329. I want to see how much use it will get before I go larger. I'm also considering making a masonry unit if i find I get addicted!

    Andy, thanks for the recipe. Does the crust turnout similar to Andy's hidaway? What year did you get out of Villanova? I graduated in 68 with mechanical engineering.

    Andy could probably make a drink for you from memory, but I don't think he was the doughboy.

    Excellent. I never thought to look at my copy. That doesn’t look like anything different than most recipes tho.

    If you perfect it, you must invite us over! Much easier to get to Raleigh than St Barts at the moment!
