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.
|1. Position pizzas P1, P2, and P3 in the Raw Landing Zone. P1 will go in first.|
|2. Let pizzas bake until the leading edge is sufficiently colored and caramelized.|
|3. Rotate each pizza’s less-baked side towards the burner flame while positioning in the Finishing Zone as shown.|
|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.|
|5. After rotating P1, P2 and P3 into the Finishing Zone, place P4, P5 and P6 in the Raw Landing Zone.|
|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.
