If you love pizzas, there is nothing better than making your own and a purpose built Pizza oven will ensure your pizza creations are cooked to perfection. Pizza ovens are built to optimise high temperatures, the ideal environment for cooking pizzas and achieving a crispy base.
This wood-fired Stone Pizza oven has been made in Portugal, using traditional methods. The exterior of the oven measures 100cm x 100cm and has been made with a layer of refractory brick, then rock wool and finished in a beautiful stone so it is exceptionally well insulated, capable of achieving a top temperature of between 350°and 400°.
The excellent insulation will enable the oven to maintain temperatures for longer, so after you have cooked your pizzas which will take less than a minute each, you probably have time to knock up some pastry or tandoor style dishes that require a high heat to cook and as the oven cools, the residual heat is great for slow cooked dishes, such as casseroles or slow roasted joints.
In the door of the oven are two holes for spits (available to purchase separately) with corresponding spigots inside, at the rear of the oven, perfect for those slow roasted joints. The door is in two parts and the top section has a viewing window, so you can check out your dishes without having to open the door and lose heat.
It also has an air inlet vent so, together with the stainless steel chimney which includes a choke, you can control the air flow and smoke inside the oven. A built-in thermometer with 30cm probe inside the oven will enable you to monitor the temperatures and decide when best to cook each sort of dish.
The oven has an ample cooking area of 80cm x 70cm, so space will not be an issue even if you are catering for a large party!
A suitable base will be required to support the oven, no less than a metre square depending if you intend to include a working area at the side.
Weighing 700kg, the oven will be delivered in a pallet crate. We need to agree a convenient delivery date with you so please ensure that your order includes accurate contact details. Due to the weight of this oven you will need to consider how you will move it into place once it is delivered to you. We usually recommend hiring an engine hoist to lift and move the oven onto your base.
