Cooking Education:  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 Bistro 4343 Gas-Fired oven, although the concept can be adapted to a Bistro 3030.

Keep in mind that the smaller Bistro 3030 oven will have a smaller cooking surface, but the basic principles will remain the same.  For this example we keep the pizzas at approximately 10-12″. Here is a quick overview of Pizza Rotation for 1 pizza. Scroll down for more details. Please contact us with any questions: 1.800.578.6836.

1. Position Pizza in raw landing zone.

2 .Let pizza cook for 2-3 minutes.

4. Cook until crust is baked sufficiently on top and bottom,  then remove the finished pie.
