Hey keith, I make pizza at home in the top smaller oven of my dbl oven stove. My oven max temp is 550F degrees. This works well for me cooking the pizza fast in about 7 minutes. I use a think gage heavy duty 1/2 sheet pan, this keeps the bottom from cooking to fast. My wife picks up a 1 lb ball of pizza dough at the supermarket. I would cut the 1lb ball in 1/2 to using 8oz for each pizza. This is just the quick and easy method to have a quick pizza lunch. In some of my employee cafes I would use Italian bread loves cut in 1/3 to make Calzones. Again, a fast and easy way for my employees to get this done. All that has to be done is thaw, cut and let rest until ready to roll over for the Calzones.
This is two pizzas from alb of pizza dough cooked in a 550 degree oven for 8 minutes.
Most people don't go from "never making pizza" to world class pizza. Start off slow and get the feel working with a pre made dough before you make your own. After you do this we can talk about making your own dough, proper oven temp, and so on. Always remember quality in quality out............I saw a good pizza making video on you tube I'll look for it later.........Take care........Chef Bill
