I'm not sure what they used for pepper in one of them.  I'm guessing habanero or something eqjivalent.  No heat at first but it built over time, and eventually gave me a coughing fit.  I'm pretty heat tolerant.  This stuff had some zip.  And some real nice ginger flavors too.

Gochugaru - Korean dried red pepper flakes, are my guess.  You can guy them at Wegmans (McCormick no less) but absolutely at an asian grocery as well.  They are spicy and tasty..

You can get it in a paste as well, I use it when I make Dak Galbi, a delicious Korean dish, sweet potato, cabbage, rice cakes yummmm

In my dream of spending my end years touring with Dark Star Orchestra making pizza in the parking lot, I've taken the task of creating a woodburning pizza oven that I can drag around behind a truck. So this is what I came up with. It's the 4 inch fan that gets the fire hot enough to make pizza.

Forgot what I was going to ask. Anyone know how you get pepperoni to curl like it does in Buffalo?

Thinly sliced and greasy. At least that’s what Bocce told me a long long time ago ?. Oh and high heat. Like 550-600° area.

The cup and char is thick, though.  If you look at heathen NYC pizza, the pepperoni is really thin and flat.  I don't know how it's done, but it isn't because it's thin.  And Bocce is the best pizza on Earth.

It's the kind of pepperoni. Google "cup and char" and your prayers shall be answered.

All I learned from googling that is that NYC will call it their own in five years.

My next house WILL have an outdoor wood fired pizza oven. Rakish, I like the fan idea.  I hadn't seen a fan in the plans I've seen online.

Get that oven up to at least 650 degrees or just call take out. 700-750 is better still.

And, what LTS said about cup and char 'roni.

Mine's not a traditional design because I want to be able to move it. One of my family members made the traditional pizza oven, it takes him a long time to get hot enough, and he has to burn a fire to get the crust to brown. That said, he really likes his oven.

I don't have a thermometer, but it still takes a bit too long to cook the pizza, so I'm not up to a good temperature yet. Still working on it.

I’m sure you know about most of this ... but maybe one or two tips here will help you. ??

Most of those I do, it's funny, I've been putting done pizzas (I know there's a real word, pizzi?) in the oven rack only because I let the fruit flies get out of hand. I had hoped I could live without a peel, I couldn't.

The other great thing about the traditional backyard pizza oven is that it's so pretty. Mine has no aesthetics going for it.

NYC could never adopt that pepperoni.  They barely like cheese on their paper crusts.  That pepperoni would destroy them.. how do you fold a slice when the grease will run all over your hands?  Not a chance..

I continue to have that desire to build an oven... or buy one..

And this is why.. even your "non-aesthetic" pizza looked amazing.  It also tastes incredible.

My friend who's a rather big foodie in Buffalo has a Ooni or something like it. https://ooni.com/  - he loves it.

A buddy of mine has one.  He takes it camping with him.  Very credible pizzas come out of it.

If I don't build a pizza oven I'll buy a Big Green Egg or equivalent.  They will get hot enough for good pizza.

There is a top I could put on my weber smokey mountain that is designed for it, but I'm not sold on the quality yet.  In THEORY it could work, but I really think you need the closeness of the heat source and the weber is better suited for long, slow, burns over short, hot ones.

Now I want the damn wood fired pizza... at 10:20am.. awesome.

Yet, when I google "cup and char," the results are all about how it's becoming a trend in NYC.

I'd buy an Ooni in a heart beat.  They use surprisingly little wood to get up to temp, and they get up to temp fast, but I don't need another gadget, so I am going to be patient and either do the outdoor oven or Egg style grill/oven.

And, when is it ever not appropriate to crave good pizza?

Search results are often tainted by your other searches. I don't see much in the way of NYC when I searched it.  As such, I am inclined to believe that you've been looking at other things related to NYC. ?

Yea.. another gadget is the problem.

It's never not appropriate.  But I would crave a wood fired pizza over a traditional pizza oven pizza every moment of every day. that's all.. and now I want wood fired pizza again.  ARGH!

I never knew about Ooni. My world has gotten brighter knowing that exists. It clicks the checkmarks for me. I’ll be getting the $250 one next spring. Fantastic.

My latest late night indulgence, cottage cheese with Sriracha (the real, green cap stuff.) Love it.

I cannot imagine cottage cheese without canned fruit.

Anyway.  You, and @Weave are being involuntarily drafted into this:  https://www.sabrespace.com/community/topic/28511-hard-luck-league-fantasy-football-aka-taros-league/

Just do it.  It won't cost you anything and it will make people happy.

@PASabreFan I wouldn't mind seeing your acumen.  Goes double for @LGR4GM

I will name my team "Cottage Cheese Swamp" if all of you join.
