Progress photos, eh? I have had the privilege to have cooked with an Ooni well before anyone had heard of it. I think this one is the very very first pizza I cooked with a prototype Ooni in April 2012 (Ooni would only be launched on Kickstarter in November that year). Not a looker by today’s standards but revolutionary in many ways!

This one is the last pizza I made this weekend. A classic margherita. Can’t go wrong with that ;)

    Amazing to see the progress. That is one tasty looking pizza!

    Oh wow! Is that parchment/baking paper it was cooked on? Good example of the learning curve!

    I had a look through my photos and found a pizza from March in 2012!

    It sure was :)
    But the oven, inc cooking surface, was made of aerated concrete blocks so a bit of baking paper was good call!

    My first pizza made on my first day working at Ooni HQ! I have been working tirelessly on my dough stretching skills since then, so hopefully now I can produce a pizza big enough to share...

    @Will - that's a brilliant first effort!

    If you squint enough that picture of Will looks like he's wearing a green kilt with pizza sporran.

    @Kristian Tapaninaho - any photos you could share of the early development? I'd love to see how the product evolved (pretty sure I wouldn't be alone in that)

    @Kristian what's the recipe of the dough used on Classic Margherita? Is it the Uuni signature dough? :smile:

    Hey, it's pretty much the normal Ooni recipe, only yeast amount has been messed with. I wrote about it in a comment on Instagram here:

    Absolutely! Here's a little photo of it:

    I prefer the modern ones :)

    My first ever pizza! Was quite impressed for the first time - I half expected to burn it or end up with a accidental calzone!

    Looking very, very tasty! What's changed? Your dough recipe?

    Actually, my dough recipe was the same. 15+ years in the making. It was a matter of getting the right mix/type of charcoal and wood and not being afraid to let the oven crank up to that 1,000 degree range.

    I now use Blackwood charcoal. It's a pain to light, but it burns hot and long. I can usually get at least 4 pizza's done before I have to throw another log on because the charcoal base stays hot!

    The difference a super hot oven makes!
