Pizza Rotation – Fire Deck

 

Cooking Education: Pizza Rotation for Multiple Pizzas

With a basic understanding of a few key points, cooking pizzas in a Wood Stone Fire Deck Series stone hearth oven is easy.

The following example represents a Fire Deck 8645 gas-fired oven, although the concept can be adapted to any Fire Deck Series oven. Pizzas shown are approximately ten to twelve inches in diameter.

4. While pizzas from the Raw Landing Zone can move to any position in the Finishing Zone, we recommend placing P3 towards the back and P1 towards the front. As 1 was the first pie in the oven, it should be the first to come out.
