I wanted to make a pizza modeled after my favorite and 2nd favorite pizza places, Pepe’s Pizza in New Haven, CT and Vic and Angelo’s in Palm Beach Gardens, Fl. The key to a great pizza is heat heat and more heat. My oven can only get up to 500 degrees, I wanted to try to hit the 700 degree ballpark. To do so I would use wood (which burns hotter than charcoal) and charcoal. I would also cook my pizza on the grill on a pizza stone.
