How Does a Wood Fired Pizza Oven Work?

Wood Fired Pizza Ovens sound like something people buy for the novelty. They look flashy and there is that air of authenticity they provide, as well as providing an additional stylish piece of outdoor furniture. However, there is something more to it than that and how these ovens work specifically provide that distinct taste that you don’t get in other forms of pizza.

A wood fired pizza oven works by starting a wood fire at the back, side or in the middle of the oven. This then heats an inner dome and hearth of the oven, allowing it to retain a level of heat, even after the flame of the fire has been put out.

The ovens can maintain a temperature that is between 300 to 400 degrees centigrade. In order to get the best effect, it is often better to use a smaller oven as this will heat up quicker than a larger oven, though this will also depend on how many pizzas you want to cook.

It is also important to remember that what you use will be different from a commercial model as it won’t be on constantly. Balance is also an issue- you want to be sure that each side of the pizza is cooked evenly.

Different aspects can also have an effect such as the kind of wood you use, water and the wind direction. With the right approach you will be able to get the most from your oven.

  • I have the extra-large Neapolitan oven and I am pleased with the quality of the oven. It is well built and very heavy, I had to make a hoist to get it onto the cart. I cooked 10 pizzas and 2 loaves of bread on the first day that I used the oven and got great reviews from my family and friends. I am looking forward to cooking different types of recipes in the oven. Scott was great to work with, I highly recommend Back Yard Brick Ovens to anyone looking for a wood fired oven.

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.
