About Wood Fired Pizza Ovens
Made the way the pizza gods intended, cooking a meat, cheese, and tomato pie over an open fire pays homage to Old-World traditions, and it begins with the wood. Each flame-licked crust that comes out of a wood fired pizza oven takes on the delicious, smoky flavors of oak, cherry, or apple wood. Made with fresh ingredients and naturally leavened dough, a wood fired pizza transcends its boxed and frozen counterparts by leaps and bounds. Although some artisans prefer to create a zesty traditional pie with sausage, pepperoni, mozzarella, and tomato sauce, others enjoy delicious but non-traditional ingredients, such as shrimp, bacon, artichokes, asparagus, sauerkraut, and feta cheese. Happily, there are no rules when it comes to piecing together a pie, but this authentic baking method is about more than just a tasty bite. A pie cooking in a wood fired pizza oven permeates the air with the essence of Italy. The open fire of a stainless steel, cast-iron, or brick pizza oven brings people together indoors or out, offering warmth, comfort, and conversation. Pizza lovers can find affordable new and used pizza ovens on eBay as well as all the necessary accessories, such as pizza stones, paddles, and cutters.
