There is nothing quite like sinking your teeth into a crispy, delicious pizza straight out of the oven – or better yet, a wood fired pizza oven!
If you haven’t already discovered, a wood fired pizza oven combines old-world cooking with modern design to create a super hot, super flavoursome, and super fast oven that goes beyond just pizza making.
We put together our top six reasons why a wood fired pizza oven does more than just Australia’s favourite take-away meal:
Super fast, quality cooking
The secret to the perfect pizza is in the oven’s design; a true pizza oven can reach temperatures of over 400 degrees Celsius – much more than a conventional oven’s 260 degrees! The intense heat is concentrated onto the base – crisping a pizza base perfectly while the ambient temperature cooks the toppings. This use of heat means that pizzas can be cooked through in as little as 3 minutes, not 15-20 minutes like a conventional oven.
Delicious flavours beyond the humble pizza
Wood fire smoke brings a new level of culinary flavours to cooking. Extremely popular for pizza cooking, wood fired cooking is especially well matched with heirloom vegetables, red meats, bread and even seafood.
Wood fired cooking can slash calories from your favourite treats
It’s no secret that home cooking is often healthier than their fast food counterparts. Not only do the wood fired ovens need no extra oils and fats, access to quality, whole ingredients makes a world of difference to the end flavour of your meal – and with the convenience of a fast oven on your doorstep, exploring new and healthier recipes is even easier.
The whole family can get involved
You’re never too young or too old to enjoy cooking. Kids love to be involved getting creative in the kitchen, so being able to involve them in a fun, yet safe, activity is the perfect way to introduce them to healthy cooking. As for adults, a wood fire oven offers a host of flexibility for recipes and slashes cooking times – so there’s no huge outlay of effort to try something new on the menu.
