Long time lurker, first time poster. I cannot thank the members of this forum with the help and information and i have silently received.
So here's my quandry: If one of the goals of pizza making is to get the oven as close to 830 F as possible, would using the broiler to preheat the oven and baking stone be a good idea? Could I bake off the pizza using the broiler? I know that the broiler generally produces a much more intense heat than the normal burner/elements. Could using the broiler to preheat the stone and heat the oven past its ~550 F mark really happen?
