A member of Peter Reinhart's bread forum posted a link to an article on how to make your oven capable of producing a great pizza published in the LA Times today. Read it here.
Forgot to include that. --Pamela
Seems to me a pair of large rectangular pizza stones will accomplish the same thing, or pretty close.
Thanks for such a cool idea.....and thrifty too! I use a round pizza stone, but I can see how the surrounding bricks could bring more radiant heat, especially close to the pizza. thanks.
Good article about the pizza method. Mine are getting better. I have the dough down, now it's a matter of getting better at the baking method. Thanks for the original article - it's a great help in understanding what needs to happen here.
My husband just sighed when I mentioned going on a fire brick hunt.... but he's used to my "crazy schemes" by now.... Plus he loves homemade pizza!
