Nothing brings people together like the pleasure of cooking pizza outdoors, hearing the cracking of the fire wood and catching delicious smells on the wafting breeze that will whet the appetites, and encourage excited anticipation for the culinary delights that await.
Perfect for families and food lovers, there are many reasons to choose a pizza oven for your outdoor kitchen. Outdoor cooking is always a social event and huge fun where everyone gets to join in with stretching their dough and picking their favourite toppings before sliding it into the pizza oven. The fun doesn’t stop there either, outdoor pizza ovens such as the DeliVita Wood Fired Oven can be used for more than just pizza, with a world of flavours to discover including roasting, grilling, baking and smoking.
How does an outdoor pizza oven work?
You may have witnessed the theatre of a pizza oven in action at your local pizzeria or whilst enjoying your travels in Italy and wondered how an outdoor pizza oven works.
Typically, an outdoor pizza oven uses three types of heat to cook:
Direct heat from the flames
Radiated heat coming down from the dome, which is at its best when the fire has been given time to burn for a while
Convected heat, which comes up from the floor and from the ambient air
Once you have lit the fire in the centre of the oven you must allow it time to heat up both the hearth of the oven and the inner dome. The heat generated by the fire is absorbed by the oven and that heat is then radiated or convected, to allow food to cook. When the pizza oven is up to temperature, the burning wood can simply be pushed to one side and then the fun of cooking can begin!
