Hi there,
          I used my Jamie Oliver fire pit/ pizza oven for the first time yesterday. I followed instructions, heated the pizza stone for about 30 mins, the charcoal was white and I felt that it was really hot. The pizza did not cook properly and I was really disappointed. What am I doing wrong please.
                                 Thanks

Welcome to the forum sheilajay

What sort of topping did you have on the pizza (, I am assuming that it was homemade)
There are a few things that cold affect he way the pizza cooks , I think I'm right in saying that a thin crust is best for cooking in a wood fired pizza oven .(really quite thin )
If you put too much passata on the top of the pizza it makes it. Bit wet and the dough would then take longer to cook.
If you over top the pizza then this would also take longer for it to cook.
The best pizzas are topped sparingly.

Did you heat the oven with the front closed ( door on) I'm not an expert at cooking in one of these ovens by any manner of means but as far as I know the door needs to be on in order for the oven to get to the correct temperature.

What sort of mozzarella cheese did you use ?
The balls of mozzarella are very wet and this also affects the way the pizza cooks , I mainly use the firm mozzarella for pizza that can be cut into cubes or grated , if I use the balls of mozzarella that come in bags with fluid I ensure that they are very well drained .

We do have a forum member who builds wood fired ovens may be he might have some ideas as well as to why your pizza wasn't fully cooked .

Welcome to the forum She Looshka smile

What television show were you watching at the time this recipe was given ?
It might be easier for someone to help you if we knew as different television shows get shown in different parts of the. World at different times.

I'm looking for a recipe that you published in The Herald Sun with lamb, rice and sour cherries all in the one pot.  I made it for my family and they loved it but I have lost the paper and I can't find the same recipe anywhere.

Welcome to the forum SUMMER01 smile

What country are you in and how long ago was the recipe published ?

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi all

Was wondering if someone could enlighten me on some alternative  to watermelon in the 15min sticky kickin chicken recipe?  Its a cracking recipe but timing here in NZ heading into winter is not good for watermelon availability and I can't think what to substitute it with.

Any help and advice gratefully appreciated

Cheers
Nick

Re: Ask me a cooking question

I really love your Rhubarb and sticky stem ginger crumble recipe but wonder what other fruits could be used instead of the rhubarb but also goes with the stem ginger topping.

Peaches, pears, apricots all go well with ginger.
