Burnt a Pizza in the Oven

Others have suggested a pizza stone to moderate the direct flame from burning things in the oven and Iím thinking this Click image for larger version

Size:	406.5 KB
ID:	253327 Air Bake sheet placed on the lower part of the oven might also work. Am not thinking I would place the pizza on the sheet but just place it between the bottom of the oven and item Iím trying to bake. Thoughts???

Cook my pizza's on my Traeger Pellet Grill, even when home. They are so much better. Wood fired pizza is the best.

YUP!!

I cook my pizzas on my Cookshack PG500 pellet smoker. They turn out perfect every time.

Cause sometimes we live in them for months, not just weekends.

Sometimes it's raining, sometimes the mosquitoes are swarming outside, sometimes it's cold. A few years ago on the way to Alaska the mosquitoes were so thick at a campground east of Edmonton that it was a struggle just to get the shore power cord hooked up. At Cantwell near Denali Park it snowed one night, and then on the 4th of July at Homer it was raining. Most of the time we can be outside but not always.

Not sure that'd be a great idea, Montana. That non-stick coating alone is in danger of being overcooked and offgassing. IF you are trying to spread heat around and protect against hot spots, a regular (if thick) aluminum cookie sheet would likely diffuse heat very well. The pizza stone is there to not only diffuse, but also regulate heat. There's so little room in these ovens, so little ability to recoup heat loss and too many opportunities for hotspots: a pizza stone (or even a nice big piece of steel) helps heat be evenly diffused, and retains heat so your food isn't bothered by an opened oven door.

My nephew is a Boy Scout and looks at our TT with scorn and says, "That's not camping!" I guess he's right. As for the O.P., check out the other thread. That baking sheet does not have 'thermal mass' to stabilize and diffuse heat.

Speaking as an Eagle Scout, I'd say your nephew has yet to understand that ANY camping is camping (some is just more comfortable than others). Granted, my wife had to persuade me that car camping was legitimate, so I am a slow learner myself.

That first cup of hot coffee (especially when the rest of the camp is asleep) is a really great motivator for enjoying the better parts of being in the outdoors.

Amen to the first cup of coffee! Weather allowing, I perc the coffee outside so as not to wake up sleeping beauty. As far as 'camping', we would mainly backpack when we were young, I kind of had a disdain for 'car camping', mainly because I didn't like crowds and noise. I kind of agree with my nephew, when you are in a climate controlled bubble with a bed, electricity, running water, toilet and shower, you ain't camping no matter how many s'mores you make, lol. Living the sissified RV life now, no apologies! I'm too old to sleep on the ground!

Same, same, NJKris! Perc'd coffee over the old coleman stove was what won me over to car camping. I do fondly remember the luxuries of backpacking... but really appreciate the differences of the Camper life.

While I still hike, I'm afraid I wouldn't be outside near as much if it meant still sleeping on the ground (or even a self-inflating mattress pad). Maybe the camper can serve as base-camp, from which to launch a high adventure backpacking excursion (and provide a comfortable return for when they get back).

Anyway, cheers from another old guy looking back on those lovely - if a little uncomfortable - glory days.

I have an air bake that lives in our camper oven. It seems to work well to help with "hot spots". We don't do pizza when we camp but we do eat VERY well with our dutch ovens!

My friend who lives in AK calls mosquitos there the "State Bird".

I can remember being out in the bush with him and not being able to see his face clearly due to the clouds of mosquitos around our faces. You need to use DEET for aftershave, cologne, and deodorant just to keep them at bay.

Eating outside can be a challenge there as if it's not mosquito's, it's flies which are often huge as well. They bite too.

Jeeze, I'm scratching at myself just reading this. What a nightmare! I can't stand the thought of all those mosquitoes. Maddening.

I hope youíre able to get some answers from this thread. I use a pizza stone that seems to help a bunch. Iíd love it if youíd try the airbake pan and report back.

Anti-Burn

We use a Air-Bake large cache sheet. Works fine and lighter w/o chance of breaking VS pizza stone. We have used both, also raising your top shelf as much as possible helps. Extra bonus, if we take the Air-Bake and I can occasionally talk my DW into Pride of Iowa or CC cookies.
