Although it’s named (appropriately) a wood-fired pizza oven, it does a whole lot more than bake pizzas – perfectly. They can be adapted to any cooking need you have, like roasts, bread, or stews. Literally any recipe can be modified to get full use out of a pizza oven while enjoying the outdoors during winter or summer. Wood-fire ovens add a unique flavour to every dish compared to traditional indoor oven cooking, which isn’t half as much fun as cooking outside. But, if you can make it in your kitchen oven, you can make it in a wood-fired pizza oven!
How does a pizza oven work?
Let’s explain why pizza ovens are so cool but also so hot. You bundle your wood in there and set it alight. The smoke exits via the chimney and the intense heat generated inside is absorbed by the brick to retain and distribute it. They are designed to sustain temperatures up to 400ºC for long periods and provide an all-round perfect cooking result.
