I did a pizza on the Akorn, for the first time,tonite. Bought dough at Publix and added sauce and toppings. I put my stone in the cooker just after I lit it and got the cooker to 550*. Slid the pizza on parchment paper in on the stone with my peel and cooked it 8 minutes. Could have gone less cause the bottom was well done, but was awesome.
