Pizza Oven v Pizza Stone


Great Follow-ups

Actually this is about using a real pizza oven.  Awhile back I told you about being given this counter top Hobart oven   The problem with it was where to put it?  If it was up to me, I'd leave it on the counter, but MoSup is Miss Tidy so that was not an option.  I temporarily stored it on a little table against a far wall, and prepared for having to get rid of it.  She has been dropping a lot of "ahems" lately. 

Alternative.  I bought a pizza stone.

Even if it worked as well as the Hobart (and it does not), the requirement of heating the stone for an hour bugs me.  Not only is that a lot of power being consumed by an empty oven, but the results were not comparable.  Good, yes; but not as good.

The oven on the other hand reaches heat in about five minutes, and will finish up to 4 pizzas in 12 minutes  So
here's the plan.  Let's hope it works.

I have a bunch of these saved up and am collating now.  Will update later today.
