Flipping Pizza!

  • I wonder if it would be possible to cook a pizza on both sides if you were using a brick oven and used those wooden slab thingies to slide them in and out, and you cooked it on the bottom first, but then put another slab on top, held them together, swiveled to flip the pizza, then pulled the slab previously on the bottom out so both sides of the pizza get cooked. When it was done cooking, you would repeat the process in reverse to remove the pizza from the oven onto the correct side with possibly minimal topping spillage. The question would be whether the toppings would cook onto and stick against the slab part touching them while they cooked, but maybe since it cooked a little beforehand before that part it wouldn't? Or maybe you could use some other material that wouldn't stick the same? I imagine you could also improve your odds depending on the specific toppings used, the amount of cheese used, and by having the cheese under the toppings. All very complicated and theoretical, but I'm sure there's a way to make it work that actually does more evenly cook the entire pizza. Especially if this works:

  • I think perhaps the best solution is to develop a gyro-like matrix that spins in the oven in such a manner that the toppings of the pizza never fly off, thus ensuring an evenly cooked pizza that was, in essence, flipped.

  • Perhaps the creation of a gyro-like pizza oven device to flip pizza while cooking to retroactively make Don correct is the will of the universe. Get on it, science (after COVID, please).

  • It's not "a bit". Don is legitimately confused about pizzas, and everybody who's perpetrating this is only adding to it. You're essentially picking on Don.

  • @tokyoslim Nah, you definitely have the wrong read on this. Ian talked just the other day about famously all the silly debates he's gotten in with Don. You're not giving Don enough credit.

  • Ian and I had a very different conversation. Is it a silly debate? Yeah, but that has nothing to do with it.

    Don was led astray and he never questioned it. It happens - but then people draw it out because they find it amusing that somebody is confused, so they continue perpetrating or obfuscating the issue, when it's a simple answer. Just for their own lulz. It's a stupid thing. My reading of it is fine.

    I mean, you can believe whatever you want - you can have fun with it - but the answer is simply no, you don't flip a pizza when you're cooking it. That's it. There's no "joke" there.

  • For the record, an oven already cooks things on all sides. In a traditional brick oven, or when you use a pizza stone, one side is cooked by convection and radiation, and the other side is cooked by conduction.

  • This is the weirdest thread in the history of the forum. I thought it was just a fun pizza joke. Don't know what the fuck is going on anymore.

  • I bet I could find a weirder thread.

    It is. Ignore the dude having a meltdown over literally nothing. Picking on Don? EZA wouldn't have made a meme of it if that was the case. We all wouldn't be bringing it up if that was the case. Dude doesn't want to admit he got the wrong read on something. Honestly, he never seems to do well admitting he's wrong about anything it seems. Prideful? Pigheaded? Whatever you want to call it, I know better now than trying to even respond anymore.

  • lol meltdown. You really do love gaslighting people, don't you?

    It was an hour-long discussion about Don's crazy ideas about how pizza is made. Didn't seem like a bit or a joke to me, just Don things.

    Sounds more like Don about pizza than @TokyoSlim about Don's take on pizza.
