It’s easy to fall in love with the charm of a wood fired pizza oven in your backyard. The wood fired oven looks like it’s straight out of an Italian farmhouse, and it brings the literal warmth of an oven and a figurative warmth from the cozy atmosphere. It’s clear from the name that a wood fired oven is perfect for making crisp, tasty pizzas, but did you know that there are other uses? Read on for more information about how you can take advantage of your wood fired pizza oven for even more uses!
What is a Pizza Oven?
Any model of pizza oven looks pretty much the same—they are made from bricks or stone and have a domed top with a chimney and a front opening for food to go in. The oven can get really hot, and it can be used for cooking all sorts of food beyond pizza—if you know how to master it.
When the flames are kept low, the pizza oven can transform into a hearth oven to bake artisan breads. The dome of the oven creates a warm, consistent atmosphere, and the stone or brick is wonderful for retaining heat.
We all know vegetables are good for you, and we want them to be super tasty! Roasting vegetables brings out the rich flavors of vegetables, and the little caramelization that you get on the veggies is delicious and filling. Put veggies like cherry tomatoes, peppers, and summer squash in the oven and let the flavor build.
If you can manage your flames well, you can actually make some scrumptious stews in the wood fired oven. Choose recipes that simmer for long periods of time.
