Any ovens that will hit high (600+ or more) temperatures?
I make pizza and we are in the market for an oven. Is there anything out there that will do this. Looking for 24" or 30" oven with range, gas only.

There are no domestic range the will reach above 550 degrees other then in the self-clean mode.

You would have to go with a commercial oven.

If you ever need appliance parts here is a good place to get them.

Commercial is fine but what about an oven that isn't a pizza deck oven. Looking for someting that has traditional oven below, burners on top and 24-30" wide or so. 36" is too big. Any commercial oven/range combos I've found still only do 500-550.:(

I have made pizza in my oven at 475 degrees and the pizza comes out really good.

Are you trying to make a lot of pizzas at a time?

High heat allows for something you just can't get with low heat. That is essentually a super tender moist inside and a slightly crunchy but not cracker dry outside. This is an example of what you can get with hot hot heat.

This is cheaper than a new oven, and works fairly well from what I have read. As Im sure you know by now even a pizza stone in a oven doesnt get hot enough.

I thought about the 2 stone. I know Willard from over at :)

Is that a picture of a pizza that you made?

You are right, the higher the heat the better.

I think I will increase my heat next time for 550 degrees.
It will probably be better.

Ha ha you know I was going to post after that a disclaimer saying that I did NOT make that.

I bet your pizzas look just as good.

Just you knowing that a higher heat produces a better crust and better pizza overall, tells me that you know something about pizzas.

(I'm Italian, we know our pizzas) :)

Not to give any ideas and I personally would not do this, but that particular pizza was made in an electric oven on "self clean" mode (800+ F) now we are officially off topic :)

yummy mummy 03-16-2008 09:51 AM


I don't think I would try it, because I would probably blow the house up. :laughing:

My only thought would be if the crust is stretched really thin, then maybe the highest temp. on our ovens would produce a better pizza?
