Roccbox--First pizza

Received Roccbox recently. Fired it up using gas. Got to around 900 F in 55 min. 
This was my first time making Neapolitan dough and pizza. 
Used "Fidel Montoya's" recipe for dough. It is here: 

I had problems getting pizza off the peel as was using parchment paper until now. I guess parchment paper will burn instantly at 900F. After first pizza, I had a burnt flour on the stone. Photo: 

Keeping temp at 900F was easy. Made 4 pizzas --2 were great and 2 average.  
I had to turn pizza every 10 seconds or so to prevent it from burning.
Overall am very happy with my  purchase as my family loved homemade Neapolitan pizzas. Photos attached:

    Really took close to an hour to get up to 900°???

  • Yes. It took a long time from 550 to 900. I got to 500 in about 25 min. Then it  seemed to "stall":)

    That's pretty crazy. Especially when the website claims 15 minutes.
