But I find myself going cooking great meals and coming up with new recipes every week to please my family and friends.




Neapolitan Pizza Dough

If your making pizza you might want to make it Neapolitan style and that’s hot and fast in under 90 seconds so you would need a hot oven first and then the top heat of the flame to char your pizza.

Backyard Brick Oven Cooking

The secret is to practice what you love and put passion into your meals. I like to  think of it as an art and something that make people happy . Its truly a great experience when you create a great dish and everyone gets to enjoy the whole experience.  Although I have been cooking for most of my life now  I still come up with new ideas and improve  upon what I  cook . Many people call who cook in our ovens and have so many questions . They ask for recipes and “what kind of wood should I use?” “what kind of pans should I use?” “Can I make bread?” “Do I leave the door open?” I think its great and try to answer them all. But my best advise when it comes to backyard brick oven cooking is to practice controlling the fire!

Clean Kiln Dried wood ,No Smoke and Controlled Fire and Temperature is the secret to great cooking fun!

The fire is the main concern when cooking.  Getting the floor hot first, then allowing your fire to dampen down a bit so you can control the cooking environment. You will always need good wood.  Use seasoned (dried) oak or another hardwood, like walnut, ash or hickory. Be sure they are dry as well. Use a small amount to start and understand the fire that they produce. Don’t add multiple logs on the fire. let them light one by one and notice the result. If your fire is to big close the door lightly and keep it open slightly on an angle.

If you really want to hone in on your game you truly need a laser temperature gun to shoot the floor. This way you note the temp and results you get. For pizza I like 650f .









If your cooking steaks, and I like mine nice and thick  medium rare with a nice char.  I use a cast iron pan usually by Lodge get it nice and hot. I have my steaks sitting out at least two hours at room temperature first with a little salt and pepper.  You want them to get warm so they cook nicely inside and don’t burn on the out side.   I  understand my fire and my oven. At first I get the oven  hot so I have some coals built up from the fire. Then I heat my cast iron and time the fire so the flames will die down while cooking  so I don’t burn the steak. I have ready  some smaller thinner cuts of split oak and add one at a time (to the coals).  This way  I can control the flame height and keep the oven where I think its cooking best. I always use insulted gloves and  towel to avoid getting burnt and long sleeves are ok with me!  When the steak starts to char on the top I take it out and turn it over to char both sides well. I add some wine and butter I love  the reduction flavor of cabernet with butter and the steak juices.

  • Let me start by saying I never write reviews. This is different. I found Forno Bello online. I spoke to Scot Who was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I placed the order for the family xl. When I received the pizza oven I was completely blown away. The quality of the oven is beyond anything else that I found and I looked everywhere. It was extremely easy to start the fire, up to temperature in no more than 20 minutes. We had it up to around 850 degrees in no time and you could still touch the outside. Insulation is huge with pizza ovens. I have had two parties since I received the oven. I live in the New Haven area where people really love pizza. The guests that I had could not believe how good the pizza was. I can’t say enough. Also scot followed up with me. It is not just a great pizza oven but a great experience as well. I will send some more pics as I get them. Thank you again.
