Pale white ring on inside of cornice


It's more of an aesthetic thing, but I've noticed that some of my high temperature pies have a pale white ring on the side of the cornice.

I'm curious about what the cause might be since the pie is being cooked at around 750-800F and the rest of the pie has some decent char. Any ideas?

Perhaps due to airflow from the center of the pie. If the cornice is hotter than the topping, the air will rise and draw the cooler moist air from the center toward the cornice.

White ring or not, that looks delicious!
