After our experience with the Orange and Olive Pizza at Osteria Pane e Salute, we were eager to try making pizza in our pizza oven with the lower temperatures suggested by Caleb. I did not go quite as low as he did (more like 550º vs. 465º). Since this was new and could possibly be a failure, I also prepared a small amount of pizza dough (a la Chris Bianco), rather than screw up the good 50% whole wheat crusts Barbara makes, so we could be sure of a good dinner, even if the experiment failed.

Here are the results of that effort:
