Calling all pizza aficionados! Who owns a pizza stone? Who’s tried making cast iron skillet pizza? Same. I’ve tried basically every hack to try to achieve wood-fired pizza at home. Spoiler: None of them replicate it. And that’s not because my pie skills are lacking.
The number one issue is that home ovens don’t reach the same sky-high temperatures as wood-fired ovens. On average, their max temp is 450°F. For a tender but crisp crust—with an unmistakable leopard spot pattern of charring—you need a quick, intense heat.
