Pizza Rotation - Mountain Series
Cooking Education Part I: Pizza Rotation for 1 Pizza
With a basic understanding of a few key points cooking pizzas in a stone-hearth oven is easy. The first lesson is Pizza Rotation for 1 pizza. (Then we will move on to Pizza Rotation for 3-6 pizzas.)
Equipment note: The following example represents a Mt. Adams 5' Gas-Fired oven, although the concept can be adapted to any of the other Mountain Series ovens.
For this example we keep the pizzas at approximately 10-12". More details about our pizzas can be found in the Recipe Library.

As the side of pie towards burner flame finishes, rotate the less baked side towards the burner flame. Position in the finishing zone.
Important Note On Rotation:
When ready to turn, the pizza can move from any position in the raw landing zone to any position in the finishing zone.
Cook until crust is baked sufficiently on top and bottom, then remove the finished pie. (click on image to zoom)
