High heatYour regular oven may go up to 260 degrees Celsius. But it’s still not hot enough. Pizza ovens produce a whopping 400-500 degrees, cooking your pizza within minutes. It’s this high heat which cooks your pizza evenly and to utter perfection. It also has a few health benefits…
Retains more nutrientsYour pizza may taste fine if you’re using a conventional oven, but a lot of the nutrients from your pizza (especially your veggies) will be lost. It takes longer to cook pizza in a conventional oven and, over this long period of time, some of the nutrients from your veggies are reduced. Wood-fired pizza ovens take minutes to cook pizza, retaining more of the good stuff in your lovely fresh toppings.
FlavourThis is probably the single biggest thing missing from your conventional oven-made pizzas. Your pizza doesn’t have that distinct, European, wood-fired flavour. The wood makes all the difference, which is why there’s a huge distinction between American-style, deep-dish pizzas and proper Italian wood-fired pizzas.
When you use a wood-fired pizza, the texture of your dough is simply the bomb. It’s that crunchy, crisp base with a beautiful fluffy crust – the way pizzas were always meant to be made. You might have found that your conventional oven-made pizzas have been a little oily, or a perhaps slightly soggy. The only way to get the perfect pizza base is by using a wood-fired pizza oven. So, we’re not saying that conventional oven pizza is bad – it’s just not as amazing as wood-fired pizza. If you want to become a true pizza master, talk to the experts at the Wood Fired Co.
