Broiling pizza at home

BoingBoing, via Kottke, points us to this ooooold article from Serious Eats back in March of 2007 that explores broiling pizza at home using, of all things, Domino's pizza dough. From the initial conversation with Domino's through the process of finding the right way get the oven up to temperature. I won't give away any of the details, but I wonder if one could make a good bread oven using a similar technique. I mean, I'd rather have the wood-fire oven in the backyard, but if I can't quite swing that, then why not do a kitchen hack or two?
