This was built at the International Ceramics Festival 2015 at Aberystwyth by two potters...




(I took a photo of the instructions that they displayed for all..unfortunately that is 3mb...)

The pizzas were tasty

Me too. I just bought a really fancy pants new oven, but it doesn't do pizza as well as the old one. Also, it trips the gerry-rigged electric, so it's hopeless at the moment. I miss pizza!

Love our Bread Shed, it includes a raised yard, just about where grandma's ratridden privy used to be. ( Rats may have been in my imagination as a child, of course!). Designed and built by Jon, my OH.

I was thinking tonight, how does one get pizza into a pizza oven? I know you use those paddle thingies, but my pizzas are all floppy. I roll out the dough with a rolling pin, and roll it up onto the pin and put in on a baking tray, then top it and transfer to the oven on that. I think I'd make a horrible mess trying to transfer a topped, uncooked pizza to the oven without a tray. Presumably there is a knack to it?

The dough is very resilient. I tend to roll mine out and use coarse semolina to stop it sticking to the work surface, top it, and then quickly slide the peel under it. Move to the oven and quickly pull the peel out, leaving the pizza in situ. It's very easy and took about three goes to get it right.

I think well kneaded dough helps. It becomes much more resilient.

Yeah it's a bit like the tablecloth trick getting the peel out...

That is what started me off thinking about the transfer. Should have practiced on the old oven! Can you get shorter peels for normal kitchens, given that I may not get round to building the actual pizza oven for several (more) years?

Of course, actual electrics that will run the oven will also necessary.

Yeah, you can get very short peels.

That looks ideal, thanks. I shall arrange for Santa to deliver one. (Although a full-sized one would certainly be more entertaining in the kitchen....)

30 second google search. I offer no QC on it.
