Wood fired pizza making

Wood fired pizza making

W0od fired pizza making is a fun and unique way to make pizza. There’s something special about cooking pizza in a wood-fired oven that creates a superior flavor and texture. Plus, the process of making the dough and selecting toppings can be a fun activity to do with friends or family.

First, you’ll need to make your pizza dough from scratch. A basic dough recipe typically includes flour, yeast, salt, and water. Knead the dough until it becomes smooth and elastic, then let it rest for at least an hour to rise put it away covered with plastic or in a dough box so it ferments and taste and performs better. I like three days myself ! When its ready, gather your favorite toppings. The possibilities are endless, but some popular options include tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, sliced vegetables, cured meats, and fresh herbs. You can make anything so get creative and have fun!


Making wood fired pizza at home requires a few key elements:  quality pizza ingredients, and patience. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Invest in the  correct oven That depends on what you like to cook and for how many people  we have  several options , including small tabletop models and large family ovens. Decide what works best for your space and budget. Then the fun begins !

  2. Prepare the dough: Use a mix of high-quality flour, water, salt, and yeast. Mix together all ingredients until the dough is elastic and smooth. Cover and let it rest for several hours until it has doubled in size. Check our blogs and videos for all types of fun recipes

  3. Gather your ingredients: Choose high-quality ingredients such as San Marzano tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and fresh herbs. Have them prepared and within reach.

  4. Heat the oven: Preheat the oven  by building the fire on the floor , a hot floor is always first and use good wood!

  5. Stretch and shape the dough: On a floured surface, stretch and shape the dough into a thin circle or oval see our videos

  6. Add the toppings: Spread tomato sauce over the dough, then add fresh mozzarella, toppings, and fresh herbs.

  7. Cook the pizza: Using a long-handled pizza peel, slide the pizza into the oven. Cook for 1-2 minutes, while rotating the pie so it does not burn! That might take a little practice so have a couple of spare doughs the first time you start and just use sauce as a test pie!

  8. Enjoy: Remove the pizza from the oven and let it cool for a minute before slicing and serving. Enjoy your delicious homemade wood-fired pizza!

  • 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.

  • I will never use my bbq again!!! I received my oven a week ago and I have spent the past few days cooking up a storm for the family and neighbors. It is a beautiful oven and you can tell by the craftsmanship that it is made to last. It was easy to put the stand together, and I was lucky to have some friends come by and help me lift the oven top onto the stand. Screwed on the vent pipe and it was ready to go. I must also say the customer service was friendly and amazing... I called Scot with a few questions and he took the time to answer them all and tell me about the oven. By far the best price online by far, and the shipping was free. I plan on spending alot of time in the yard this year, and now I will be able to enjoy my passion for cooking all season long.

  • 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.
