Pizza Rotation - Bistro/Phoenix
Cooking Education Part II: Pizza Rotation for 3-6 Pizzas
The next challenge is to manage several pizzas at once. The first time you're in front of an oven with a few pizzas this may seem like a daunting task. Good news! By learning to Rotate 1 Pizza you already have all the basic skills you'll need to manage 3 pies, 6 pies, even more! Just follow the steps below to pick up the basics of how to sequence the pizzas.
Again, the following example represents a Bistro 4343 Gas-Fired oven. Keep in mind that the smaller Bistro 3030 oven will have a smaller cooking surface, but the basic principles will remain the same.
For this example we keep the pizzas at approximately 10-12". More details about our pizzas can be found in the Recipe Library.
Here is a quick overview of Pizza Rotation for 3-6 pizzas.

Position pizzas P1, P2, and P3 in raw landing zone. P1 should go in first.
Let pizzas cook for 2-3 minutes.
As sides of pizzas toward burner flame finish, rotate the less baked side towards the burner flame. Position the pizzas in the finishing zone.
"Let's Keep It Simple" Tip: Pizzas in the raw landing zone can move to any position in the finishing zone when ready. As Pizza 1 was the first pie in the oven, it should be the first to come out.
With Pizzas 1-3 in the Finishing Zone, the Raw Landing Zone is ready for Pizzas 4-6.
As your first 3 pizzas complete baking, rotate P4, P5 and P6 into the finishing zone. Repeat Steps 3-5 to place Pizzas 7-9 and so on.
