There’s something primal about cooking over an open flame. Humans of all cultures have had a long relationship with fire and food, but did you know that cooking over fire could actually make foods taste better? There are quite a few benefits to installing a wood-fired pizza oven in your backyard.
Pizza in Minutes
Wood-fired ovens are often used for making delicious pizzas. Because the oven reaches such a hot temperature, you can have a pizza in just minutes. The crust will be both crispy and chewy—similar to what you can expect at boutique pizzerias. In addition, you can use your wood-fired oven to cook more than just pizza. You can bake bread and more—the high heat is contained within the dome of the oven, creating a unique cooking environment.
In addition, your oven can roast vegetables in just minutes. The longer vegetables cook, the more nutrients you lose, meaning that a wood-fired oven can help retain nutrients while still giving you that excellent flavor.
Wood-fired ovens can reach very high temperatures, which creates an even heat on the cooking surface. Burning wood also imparts a smoky flavor to your foods, which is not something you can achieve in a traditional oven. The type of wood you use can also play a role in flavor—woods like hickory, cherry, or apple can create more depth in your food.
If you’re eventually thinking about reselling your home, having a wood-fired oven as part of your outdoor kitchen is a unique addition that adds value to your home’s resale value.
