We did our first non-family pizza night last night, with COVID restrictions lifting a little in the past few weeks, and having not seen my team from work in over a year...

 

Stupidly didn't take any photos, but having read the past few pages, I thought I'd post some of my experiences...

 

I cheaped out on an infrared thermometer as I bought the Ooni (Koda 12) for my wife's Xmas, and was already well over budget, but actually, I'm really happy with my choice.  I bought one of these:

for about 4 quid from China prior to Brexit, but still available for 7 quid or so (plus a square battery).

Stick the probe through the hole in the bottom of the Ooni so it's sitting around the middle of the stone, and then use a mobile phone holder to hold it up, then you can see the temperature all of the time, hands free, and from across the garden.

 

As per this thread, we've been using corn meal (Tesco) to stop the base sticking to worktop and peels, wooden peels to launch, and in fact to prep too. I bought a triple pack of plywood ones on Amazon for about 20 quid.

 

Pizza sauce... Someone mentioned forgetting to make sauce.  We managed this too somehow, so simply used some passata with some added garlic paste, salt, pepper, herbs, no cooking, just stuck it on the pizza after mixing it up. I'm not saying it was proper amazing, but for the time required and simplicity, and for a pizza emergency, it was ideal, and not too watery.

This tends to get decent comments in the Ooni UK facebook group:

I've never tried it, we make our own using the Ooni recipe.

Next time you're making your own, try and use tinned Pomodoro tomatoes. They work well in pizza sauces.

Yes, it's a bit salty, but I like this stuff. Also available in 12 cans bulk buy from Amazon for a bit cheaper if you're feeling brave - they've got a decent expiry date (probably 2024), and a can makes two decent-sized pizzas.


They do Classic and Aromatic versions - the latter with basil and herbs.
