I have been playing around with my cooking times and temperatures lately. Normally we cook our pies at 500-525 for about 4-5 minutes on a screen and then 1 minute off the screen. This was how I was taught to cook them.
The other day I cooked a pizza at about 450 for 5 minutes on the screen and 1 minute off the screen (lower temp, longer cook time).
What I noticed is that at the lower temperature, the pie was just as good looking and tasty, but the crust seemed to come out crispier.
I was wondering what temperature others cook at and for how long? And fyi, we are cooking on an electric oven on stone (ceramic) decks.
