    Pretty cool day and the wind turned east off the ocean to make it feel even cooler. Fired the oven for four pizzas.


    Used white cedar splits to get it going. You can see the ember spits on the front of the brick floor. Then added cherry, beech and maple woodworking cutoffs.

    Put the angle iron in and pushed the fire back and switched to maple to brown the top. Ready to go.

    Regular cheese for starters.

    Pepperoni, nicely crisped.

    BBQ chicken. Hands down winner tonight.

    New one for us. Olive oil, fresh tomato, minced garlic and mozz cheese. Very fresh tasting. Almost like a Margherita.

    Looks better than my dinner, a Digiono frozen pizza (that I accidentally left the cardboard on the bottom of)!

    About last fall zap. I think Capt. on here was doing it with his oven to keep the crust from burning.

    MMMmmmm....good looking pizza.

    I don't have one of the fancy pants dome ovens, but I do grill pizza on occasion.
    If you are looking for a change up, try roasted red peppers (in place of the red sauce), fresh mozz, basil leaves,asparagus and prosciutto. Mmmmm good.

    It is doing good. A couple of internal cracks and one on the outside at the top of the opening. Nothing to be concerned about I think. It was pretty smooth until the blizzard, and snow caused the outer layer to spall a little and loose sand/clay. It is like sandpaper now on the outside.

    I don't cover it to let it breathe. I think covering it will trap moisture and lead to failure. Stupid blizzard.

    Looks great - we called that last one a "white pizza" or "Tomato pie" back in the day. Fresh basil /and or oregano will really make it pop.
