Backyard Pizza Ovens Cooking Ideas

Once you have got the hang of you oven , you can cook foods such as…

  • Roasted vegetables
  • Baked or grilled fish
  • Wood fired wings
  • Flamed ribeye steak
  • cast iron steaks
  • Jacket potatoes
  • Freshly baked bread loaves
  • Focaccia and flatbreads
  • Side dishes such as shrimp, Scallops etc.
  • Hot desserts

In fact, you really can be as adventurous as you like! It always amazes me what people cook and post up daily!


While a pizza peel is pretty much a standard tool, you might also want to invest in things like racks for grilling, cast iron skillets, covered casserole dishes and some good grilling gloves

The important thing when cooking different foods in your pizza oven is to adjust the temperature accordingly . While pizza needs a very high temperature to achieve a fast perfect  pizza , baking and roasting needs a lower temperature with mare fire control  and a longer cooking time. So you have to learn the art and get  familiar with when is the right time to add wood and how long cooking times are !

What type of wood do  I need ? Wood-fired Ovens

The best wood to use  is seasoned and dried hardwoods. Hardwoods.

One reason hardwoods are better for cooking in a pizza oven is that they are cleaner and last longer than softwoods. The best examples of hardwood are maple, oak, ash, hickory, walnut, birch, and beech. It is also important to have  the wood kiln dried or seasoned for over 1 year and with a low moister content. Other wise your cooking experience will be a smoky and difficult one to say the least! Smaller cuts for smaller ovens and bigger cuts for bigger ovens. When you purchase wood you are usually looking for 14 to 18” cuts about 3 to 4 inches in thickness. It’s always good to have a supply of smaller cuts to add when your trying to control the fire and not looking for such bigger flames. You can always use a small hand ax and split any logs you feel that are to thick and will cause to mush of a flair up in your oven .


If you love the aromatic effect wood has on your food then fruitwood is highly recommended and can greatly affect your meal. Fruitwood, as the name implies, comes from several fruit-bearing trees.

Fruitwood includes apple, plum, almond, pear, hickory, maple, pecan, mesquite, chestnut, avocado, alder, apricot, nectarine, and cherry wood.  These woods can really add to the flavor of your next dinner! Although they might cost a little more then standard hard woods its worth the experience.


Lets Light A Fire !

It’s best to arrange your fire in the center of your outdoor pizza oven (left to right and front to back). You’ll need about 7-9 sticks of dry kindling, one to two odor-free, non-toxic fire starters, and two to three pieces of seasoned medium or hardwood. On the other hand you may also choose to start your fire a butane torch; this method can be quicker and many find it easier than the traditional approach as well. Stay away from wax and sawdust fireplace starters, as these can affect the flavor of your food.

Once the fire gets started, add 2-3 pieces of wood to help the flame reach the center and front of the dome, without expanding too far out of the oven’s opening. Use seasoned wood that is approximately 3’-4’ in diameter, and about 18’ long Kiln Dried is best! There should be no smoke before the wood catches fire, and the wood should burn fairly easy. Once the fire is well established, keep feeding it more wood, close the door and let your oven get hot  wait for about 20 minutes or so then push the fire to the side and add more wood as needed !!

Find Out Why Customers Love Our

Brick Ovens

  • I just cooked my first pizza in my new Forno Bello pizza oven. I couldn't be happier! I did A LOT of research before buying, and it was apparent to me that, not only was this the highest quality oven, but the company is one I could have confidence in and feel really good about supporting. I chose the Grande X, which works for me, but I'm sure my experience applies to all of their ovens. Find the one that works for you. As I was shopping, I had some questions. They were answered surprisingly quickly. These folks are experts, and their love and enthusiasm for cooking and helping others succeed is apparent. After I got the oven, I emailed another question, and Scot (the owner) called me a few minutes later. In addition to answering the question, we had a very nice chat for several minutes. I don’t write many reviews. But, I endorse this product and Backyard Brick Ovens without reservation. The products are amazing, and the people are just as wonderful. If you are debating a purchase here vs somewhere else, I assure you that you can't go wrong with a Forno Bello oven.

  • There isn’t enough I can say about Backyard Brickoven . First, Scott helped me thru the purchasing process by answering all questions I had about the oven, what my needs are, and assisting with helping select the best product for me. It didn’t end there; Backyard Brickoven was extremely helpful in arranging delivery for me, Furthermore, their support didn’t end there. For the 2 years that I have had the oven – which is my prized outdoor piece of equipment – Scott has continued to provide immediate support for any questions I have had regarding operating, modifying, and occasionally repairing components of the oven. Their customer support is second to none as is the product they sell.

  • Ordered the grand xl in the new cranberry color. Couldn’t believe how beautiful this new color is. So far we have cooked pizzas, scallops, fish and squash. The unit has surpassed our expectations and is easy to operate. And Scot is the best. He is always there to offer any assistance you may need.
