Picture of the Day – April 27, 2012
838 degrees fahrenheit! Now that’s hot, but it’s not hot enough. Whenever I want to fire up my mud oven I’ll crank it up past a 1000 degrees. It takes about three hours for the oven to get nice and saturated with heat. Once the coals are brushed aside, the floor of the oven will be about 750 and once it drops down to 650 I’ll start tossing in pizzas. At this temperature I can crank out a thin crust pizza in 90 seconds; I kid you not. Once you start eating pizza from a wood fired oven, you’ll never want to go back.
