Hello, BakerStone team!
I live in Russia and recently purchased Baker Stone Box from local Metro (Macro) store. I had to go with smaller Basics model as manager said they were lucky to get at least this one since your company is not presented in Russian market. I was very satisfied with overall quality of your product and so my quest for home qrill pizza making has begun. I have Weber Summit e470 6 burner grill which took me only 7 minutes to get temperature indicator on Stone box to pizza baking position with lid closed (all 6 on high). Tried it with open lid but it takes much more time and since Weber summit is designed to work with temperatures more than 800 F I decided to close lid at my own risk leaving necessary spaces as mentioned in manual. Ambient temperature inside my grill reading lid temperature gauge was 550 F with flavorizer bars presented and the thermometer on pizza oven was at max. I cooked 4 pizzas from fresh dough with mozzarella peperoni and pizza sauce topping. It took less then 2 min for each pizza to melt mozzarella. I decided to wait till top of the base be little brown and crispy. Result was disappointing. The bottom of the base burnt to black while upper part become slightly brown. So I ended up with constantly checking the bottom of other pizzas while turning and as soon as it got a little burn marks taking pizza out of the oven leaving top of the base almost white. So I need your advise and answers on this:
1. What is the cooking temperature for oven box on maximum reading of inside gauge?
2. What is the recommended temperature for thin pizza cooking?
3. Should I leave those gas burners that are directly under the oven on high after the preheating phase ends or turn them down leaving only side ones when cooking starts?
4. Should I use aluminum pizza net on baker stone to prevent bottom burning?
Your answers will be greatly appreciated and if it is possible also give me a recipe of the dough you are using to cook pizza from your advertisement picture.
Thanks for you attention, anxiously waiting for your answer,
