What is the best temperature for pizza baking?

The Words Best pizza school

What is the best temperature for pizza baking? Well, this can be a loaded question depending on who you ask. That being said I always feel that any pizza is better than no pizza.  Here are some observations based on using the same dough(which is a mixture of semolina and flour) baked in the same revolving brick oven at several different temperatures.

First: we baked at about 650 which takes about 4 minutes and allows the top of the pizza adequate time to dry while the dough has time to set up and bake slow and even. This allows for a very consistent crust with a chewy texture.  A softer consistency for your outer crust with a nice bottom cook,  similar to the smooth New York Style type of pizza .New York is usually baked in the 500-600 degree range. This temperature is ideal for heavy toppings ,  multiple toppings or heavy sauce pies since it allows for drying of the extra moisture associated with this type of pie.

 New York Style Brick Oven Pizza

Brick Oven PizzaSecond: We baked at our favorite temperature of about 770 degrees which takes about 2 and a half to 3 minutes bake time for a small standard pizza (12” 9 oz dough ball). This happens to be our choice for what we call a New York style Brick Oven Pizza.  New York Style Brick oven pizza is crispy and can be picked up by the slice . At this temperature your getting a consistently golden colored crust across the bottom of your pie and a slightly crisper outer crust that has time to rise and set up. The crust will rise even more if you move the pizza one time about one minute in. The extra heat from moving it boosts the crust higher and you get some nice bubbles too.

New York Style Brick Oven Pizza

 

This pizza is best when evenly topped without overloading the pie with toppings. This  allows for some drying of ingredients and the heat to penetrate the whole pie and crust.  .This temperature also creates a pie that is well suited for pick up and delivery. At this temperature, you can still make a well-done pie that is not burnt but slightly  covered with the black blisters.

Neapolitan Style Pizza

Neapolitan Pizza

Pizza Neapolitan Cooked in 90 seconds in the Inferno Series Brick Ovens

Third:This is the hottest Temperature category and the traditional Neapolitan pizza comes in this range  850 to 900f . Using the same dough with an extra 5% hydration .  We get a different style  of pizza!

Due to the High temperature,  you get a quick  “delicate’ puffy rise of the crust. The dough is airy due to the extra water and steam that creates air pockets. The traditional charring associated with Neapolitan Pizza occurs due to the high heat and expansive dough. This also creates  bottom with  dark spots “leopard spots” on the bottom as well as the top.

Toppings need to be very light and sparse,  due to the short cooking time the pie still needs to cook through. Also, the lighter crust structure  and lack of bake time can not  evaporate additional moister from the topping a cook them through. This style of pizza can have a tremendous flavor profile. But due to the moisture in this pizza, it’s  not well suited for pick up or delivery .

Traditionally Neapolitan style pizza is made from a very fine flour a double 00 Italian flour with  greater hydration content and result in a much lighter softer  pizza than the ones tested.  This type of pizza requires a knife and fork to eat.

Regardless of bake time each pie was very well received and enjoyed thoroughly by the participants in this project. Depending on your location you can visit many types of pizza places using many kinds of ovens and dough. Then begin to narrow down the type of pizza you would like to make and that  your customers will  enjoy.

 

Calzones  should be cooked at a range of 550 to 600f to cook all the way through you might like to pre heat some of the ingredients to get the center hot and have a great product !

Of course, you will have to experiment a bit to create your own recipe and see what temperature, moisture content, and toppings that  work best.  Or you can come to the pizza school of New York and learn all the styles.   You will also need a great oven like a revolving brick oven that can do it all. Happy Pizza to you.

Top 5 ways to succeed in the pizza industry.

There are several areas that are key to success and while all these areas are important any one is not the end all and be all to a successful formula. I’m sure you can think of that local chain that has the worst pizza in town and yet you see their delivery vehicles everywhere you go.
My own personal mystery was a pizza place in Brooklyn that was run by a guy with no personality that I am sure inspired the soup Nazi years later with his disrespect and rudeness to his customers. Aside from the pizza makers smoking while they made pizza, he would tell you to eat the unburnt part of the pie if you dared to complain.
How about the places that are so far off the beaten path you need a guide to find them or better yet they have no name on the joint? You can’t make this stuff up but it gives one hope that there is room for all of us to succeed.
I want to qualify this as my own personal opinion from working with, knowing and visiting with hundreds of pizza men and women all over the country. By no means is this THE BIBLE OF PIZZA or to be taken as law but it will give you a pretty good idea of what to concern yourself with if your new to the game, stale or in deep trouble.

  1. Location, Location, Location-the best way is to be the only game in town or be in a tourist location where there are no other options available or the ones available are of no consequence due to being very expensive or a different and specialized category like a fish house.  Some the most successful places specialized in malls, theme parks, schools, military bases or small town USA.

 

  1. Make the best pizza known to man or there about. If you are making a really top notch product people will find you and not only that, people will talk. Word of mouth is the best advertising it has been said. The reason for this is that people will trust the opinion of friends and family over silly unfounded claims of the best pizza in town and such advertised in the local paper.

 

  1. Be unique. Examples of this are everywhere but they may not seem apparent. Like making a Chicago pie where there never was one, having a wood burning brick oven, using insects as a topping or having a pizza drive through like OL Jose’s in Pineville West Virginia where they are using a revolving brick oven.

 

  1. Be a social maniac. Take pride in being part of your community. Before there was social media, there were social men and women. These wonderful people actually cared about the people they met and considered customers as friends to share joys and sorrows with. One very moving example of this is when people would come to Goodfella’s Pizza in Staten Island on their way home from work in the days after 911 just to get out of the house and be with people who cared in a friendly and safe environment. There are many examples I can think of; like the guy who coaches the local little league, the girl who hosts local heroes with pizza parties, the place that supports boy scouts, the place that sponsors Special Olympics or the guys that collect donations for slices to feed the homeless. There are so many ways to build good will in a community and give back while earning respect and loyalty that I could write a book about it but you get the idea.

 

  1. Service. Run a tight ship that gives service and shows genuine care for the customer’s experience. I don’t know about you but when I am ignored, the host is not pleasant, the server acts like he is doing me a favor, the table is dirty when I am seated or my unfamiliarity with ordering and the menu is treated with impatience, you have lost me, and more importantly, any future income my patronage may have brought. This may seem like a given but if you are not on top of this and setting a good example for your crew it will never happen. A little thing like a smile or help and directions can go a long way in building a relationship with your customers. One terrible example I won’t forget was having my little daughter with me in a new town when she had to use a bathroom so we walked into a place and we were treated so rudely I swore I would never visit that place. I understand the old “Bathrooms are for paying customers” routine but sometimes being human and having discretion can earn you a great deal of loyalty. In other words, if it isn’t costing you anything to be kind-always be kind. Believe it or not but this also includes salesmen wasting your time. Those salesmen are not only people but potential customers with family and friends that also eat.

While no list will guarantee your success, if you follow these points your odds will greatly be increased and if you earnestly follow point 5 you will contribute to a better world by treating your fellow citizens with courtesy. Happy pizza my friend and best wishes.

3 Essential Pizza Making Tools You Need

Essential Pizza-Making Tools You Need

Who doesn’t love pizza? We know we do! Sometimes, making pizza can be difficult. We’re here for you to help make it a little easier on you. We’re going to cover the  essential pizza-making tools that every pizza maker should have. 

 

The Tools

 Pizza Peels Metal 

When it comes to making, baking, and serving pizza, there is one tool that has to be there. It’s a pizza peel. The pizza peel is a critical tool for any serious pizza maker and should make the list. A wood pizza peel is the most traditional peel material, but you can also use a metal one. The only issue with a metal peel is that dough tends to stick to them more. Metal is easier to clean, but wood is more forgiving, so the decision is up to you, and it depends on what you want from your peel. Many traditional Italian places in Italy use the metal peel to pick up the pizza but the skill involved is a little more then the avg. employee  can handle in the Sates. That is why we tent to stick with the floured wooden peel.  For Great Peel Check Out The Bakers Board  Custom Wooden Pizza Peels

Pizza Prep Station. Lets Face it you need a great station to keep temperature. As a pizza professional for most of my life now. I really like working on a spacious counter made of marble or solid steel. It’s smooth cool and easy to clean as compared to the standard plastic counter tops   

Amazing Pizza Cutters . This is defiantly a tool and should be your pizza mans favorite something heavy duty and something he will love and take pride in cutting each pie I love a true Italian heavy duty cutter  . They really take it serious in Italy.

Discover Commercial Brick Ovens

Commercial brick ovens are evolving and now revolving.

Brick Façade Wood Gas Inferno

To be competitive in the brick oven pizza market you need a great commercial brick oven. What constitutes a great commercial brick oven you may wonder. Well there are only a few criteria when it comes to pizza equipment. Regardless if you have a fast casual pizza franchise, pizza chain, pub, bar, brewery, mom and pop, or mega entertainment center, the needs are same. 

First and foremost is durability.  The NY Brick oven Company has designed their ovens to be durable under tremendous production. Forged steel deck support and burner-not tin or a whole the oven floor. Heavy firebrick made of a specialty Italian Lava Stone with high thermal mass. Simple user friendly components such as American favorite-Honeywell.  

Second comes a world class product.  Champion pizza men from all over the US choose these ovens for their consistent and predictable baking quality. Even The Pizza School of NY trains future pizza champions on these ovens because they are that good! 

Third is consistency. This is achieved by several factors. The revolving or rotating deck allows the pizza to be  heated evenly and baked perfectly because it is constantly rotating at an even pace and the brick oven deck is being reheated as it goes. This virtually eliminated the inherent hot and cold spots of a fixed deck oven. Also in a conventional brick oven the surface of the deck around the fire or gas source is unusable because it gets too hot. This is does not happen with revolving deck brick oven. 

Fourth and equally important is the ease of operation and training involved in using the revolving or rotator brick oven. Because the pizza revolves you do not need to use long pizza peels to load or remove your pizza. You just place them in as it turns. You do not have to reach deep into a hot oven and you don’t have to constantly rotate and move your pizzas to get an even bake. This equates to an incredible amount of saving of both time and $$$ because you don’t need skilled labor to work the oven and your pizza man can place pies in the oven and get back to making more. 

Fifth is speed of delivery of your brick oven pizza. The NY Brick Oven Company set the world record at Pizza Expo with one of there ovens with an incredible 200 pizzas in 50 minutes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uoPRqNOYQ0U&t=11s

Brick Oven Pizza Training Made Easy

Brick oven pizza training made easy with the NY Brick Oven Company’s revolving brick ovens. Yes you can find a skilled and expensive pizza maker and hope that he can over come his own ego and train your staff to do it right. Another alternative is that you can learn the art of working a standard fixed deck brick oven yourself(which takes months) and then teach your staff yourself(which takes months).

Better yet you can get yourself a revolving or rotating brick oven that is either gas or gas and wood fired and save the time and headaches. It’s easy to train people on the revolving brick oven for several reasons.  Ease of operation, training, cost effectiveness and consistency are the main reasons for choosing an Inferno Revolving Brick oven when choosing your pizza equipment.

Let’s look at ease of operation. Having the cooking surface constantly revolving allows you to drop the pie right in front of you and pick it up right in front of you. No more long pizza peels and reaching into the oven for a good spot. No more hot spots and cold spots due to uneven heating. No more loss of cooking surface all around your fire.

Training is as easy as having  your new pizza oven man look a the pie and take it out when it is done. No more constant shuffling the pies around and spinning them to get an even bake.

Cost saving is simple-not having to be stuck to the oven your pizza man can make pizza while the pies bake.

Consistency comes from having a consistent baking temperature, not having to constantly rotate the pies in the oven and having a steady temperature to bake on because the stone is constantly turning and being heated.

Once you look at all these aspects, the reduced costs, the reduced complaints and a world class pizza you too will decide that is a life saver and the only way to go!
