There are a lot of things that go into making the best pizzas and the one that tops the list is the temperature in which you are cooking the pizzas.

What is the exact temperature you’re cooking your pizza? How low is low? 500 Fis what most home ovens seem to go to and seems to be what most home recipes recommend...

Does your oven have a broiler? I broil my pizzas for a few minutes to get some nice char on the crust.

Also, do you have a pizza stone or even a cast iron pan? Letting a stone heat up for 30-60 minutes at your ovens highest possible temperature will help a lot to crisp the bottom of the crust while keeping the insides soft and chewy.

Finally, what dough recipe are you using? Check out the King Arthur pan pizza dough recipe that’s been quite popular on the internet in the past year. You might be able to get results without having an oven that gets up to 500.

You should be able to make Sicilian style pizzas, the crust isn't crispy so doesn't rely on high temps.

If you have an outdoor grill, you can cook pizza on the grill.

Here are some how-to links:

Make your pizza on the stovetop in a skillet- cast iron if you have one, ordinary if you don't. There are quite a few sites on the internet with recipes and directions to do it. I used to do it years ago when we lived in a very hot area of the country and I couldn't face turning on the oven. My kids loved it, and I imagine yours will as well.

You're right. I forgot about stovetop pizza.

Sorry, I can't think of a way to successfully make pizza in a low heat oven.
Until the oven is fixed or replaced, you'll probably need to change the equation somehow.
• Either, source the pizza from a take-out or delivery place (perhaps for a special occasion).
• Or, make something your oven can handle using similar ingredients (like calzone). And involve the children in the prep and cooking.
Good luck with this!

PS Here are two recipes for calzone, one with tomato sauce inside (more like pizza), one with tomato sauce for dipping (more traditional).
