Backyard pizza ovens aren’t familiar items in every house like a traditional oven. And while many people are intrigued with the idea, they’re not entirely sure how the wood burning pizza oven works, what different models and features are available, or if the appliance would be a good fit for their cooking needs.
The good news is that outdoor pizza ovens are easy to use, a joy to cook with, and they impart a unique flavour to your food that you simply can’t achieve with other cooking methods. Here’s everything you need to know about backyard pizza ovens and some of the best models on the market.
Backyard Pizza Ovens: The Basics
A backyard pizza oven is unique, and different from both a traditional oven and a barbecue. While outdoor pizza ovens can be gas or charcoal powered, Forno Venetzia knows that all the best outdoor ovens are wood-fired. Not only do you get the rich and succulent flavours , but a wood burning pizza oven also creates its own convection-style heat without the need of a fan.
Thanks to the dome-shaped construction of these ovens, the heat naturally surrounds the food on all sides and cooks it evenly. Moreover, the bricks absorb heat as well, and ensure that radiant and conductive heat is constantly cooking food from multiple angles. This combined with the high temperatures wood burning ovens generate means your food cooks at a higher temperature and in less time, resulting in a juicer, more tender and flavourful result.
Expert tip: You can enhance the flavour of your food by using different types of wood, as each one imparts a unique flavour.
