Thanks for the advise Rado and Richard,

Thursday night I fired up my oven using more smaller(3 to 4 inch Dia.)pieces of oak wood. I let the fire burn for an hour and a half. I then moved the very red hot coals around the outside of the oven. At this point the oven was reading 875 to 950 deg. F. The bricks where the hot coals were turned white, after about 5 to 10 minutes.
I put a pizza in and with in 30 seconds the cheese was bubbling and the crust was a dark brown. It was like watching a time laps movie, I had to hurry and get the pizza out before it turned black. I knew then that I needed to wait until the oven temperature went down.(TO MUCH HEAT IN MY OVEN!HA HA)I waited until the oven was between 750 and 800 deg. F. before I put another pizza in. The pizza, after about 90 seconds, was great.

Friday night we had some friends over. The pizzas were fantastic. Just as good, if not better than California Pizza Kitchen. We cooked 6 Gourmet pizzas in 15 minutes. Every one was very impressed with the pizza oven. One person even commented that if the power when out, the neighborhood would be over to cook in the pizza oven.
For desert we roasted some marshmellows and made S'mores. We put the gram cracker with the chocolate bar on the oven hearth and it melted the chocolate.
It was a little cold that night, but nobody wanted to go in the house. They wanted to stay by the oven, and talk about things to cook in the oven. We even baked some chocolate chip cookies, It took about 5 minutes.

The whole night was alot of fun.

Thanks again,
Shawn
