A very popular way to cook now - an outdoor pizza oven provides the ability to cook in many ways, the main feature being high temperature cooking which is perfect for pizzas and tandoor style cooking.
Our Mediterrani Outdoor Brick Ovens are no exception - they are robust and a particularly stylish feature for any outdoor living space.
The Outdoor oven is made by artisan craftsmen and is still made by hand as tradition dictates. The technique uses refractory bricks to form the dome which is then covered in insulating refractory clays and cements to form the lovely and practical dome allowing high temperatures to be reached.
Once the oven is up to temperature, a freshly made pizza will take no more than 60 seconds to cook - it is fascinating to watch it cook and everyone will want to get involved - in particular the kids! An outdoor oven is not only for pizza though, a huge variety of foods can be cooked using the extensive range of temperatures. When the oven is left to cool the insulating properties mean it stays warm for a long time before it is completely cool. It is in this time that the oven is perfect for baking or low and slow cooking. Baking bread, tikka style cooking and slow cooked casseroles are to name but a few - an outdoor oven is a BBQ for life!
With a square base measuring 90cm square, which is reinforced with steel, the dome is hand laid on the top to a thickness of nearly 20cm! This gives you a huge cooking space inside and a lot of thermal mass - which is required to ensure high temperatures can be reached and also to allow this heat to be stored for slow cooking. The oven floor is finished in terracotta tiles also hand laid to fit the shape of the round dome. With steel stable doors and a lovely brick archway the oven is supplied ready to cook pizza or bread or anything else you like.
The outdoor brick oven is delivered assembled on a pallet and weighs approximately 450kg. For this reason help will be required from several people when moving the oven to your desired location. An engine hoist is ideal for moving and lifting a pizza oven. They are available to hire from most local hire shops. The oven base includes a strong steel loop in each corner for chains or rope to be tied around for lifting. For more advice on moving one of our pizza ovens give us a call on 01522 704505 and we'd be happy to help.
The roasting of large joints on a roasting spit is a very popular way to cook on the continent and one that provides great results. This oven has the facility to cook using a spit - a hole and support is provided in the middle of the steel door with a spigot at the rear inside of the oven to support the roasting spit, which we can supply separately. Using burning embers on the floor of the oven a variety of meat can be slowly roasted over many hours to provide a huge feast later in the evening - simply delicious!
