    Like this?  This round was pizza bagels but concept is the same.
     
    I would NOT recommend this in a top-loading electric kiln, way too dangerous IMO.
     
    Heat up to around 900*, pizzas cook in just a few minutes like a wood pizza oven.  Use clay pizza stones or a brand new kiln shelf w/o wash, definitely use heat resistant PPE.  After the first time I singed my eyebrows getting too close I decided it was time to make a pizza peel, WAY safer 

    I wouldn't worry about any toxicity unless you exclusively cook all your meals in your kiln. We all likely breathe more harmful stuff just walking through the clay studio with a dirty floor, breathing in a big city, walking past an idling car in a parking lot, sitting in traffic, etc.

    I agree- enough of the pizza chat. We need a good cannoli recipe in oxidation.

    In regards to toxicity I can't help but see articles about London breaching annual pollution limits in a week or by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish and think even with some dubious practices you are very unlikely to poison yourself anywhere near the daily intake you get already.
     
    We poison ourselves from the ground up.
     
    What's a few toxic metals between friends, who knows, maybe once the antibiotics stop working toxic metals will be ingested for killing bacteria.

    We used to joke about room temperature cones- made of butter and ice.

    When Orton comes out with a Pizza Cone, then I will cook one. I prefer my pizza not to be under-fired.

    I'll disagree with all the naysayers about it being dangerous. Do you really think that the air of the kiln is getting so contaminated with metals when heated to <300°C? I see no logic in that. Do you wear a respirator when unloading the kiln? No. So where is the hazard coming from? The inside of a kiln is one of the most sterile places I can think of and the inside of it is at most as dangerous as the work coming out it. (I personally would avoid doing it after a luster firing.)
     
    You can cook a turkey wrapped in paper clay in a kiln too.

    The only way to be sure it's safe, is to send the pizza to a certified lab for testing.

    So just so we're clear, I don't have any hesitation in saying the OP is having a laugh at our expense.  Mark Dally, the OP--Crunchypop, is a potter with a lot of experience (like, graduated from art school with an MA in ceramic design the year before I was born kind of experience).  He knows better than this.  He fires lustres and brightly coloured wares all the time.  From what I've seen of him on social media, he's got a bit of an impish sense of humour, too.
     
    At least, I hope for the sake of his health that he knows better after 34 years plus of working with ceramics....
