Have you ever taken a frozen pizza out of the fridge and placed it in your oven? This pizza cannot match the beauty, aroma and amazing taste of pizza cooked in outdoor brick pizza ovens. That is the reason so many people go to their favorite pizzerias for this kind of taste sensation. However, you can purchase a brick oven and have great tasting pizza made fresh at home, anytime you wish. And you won’t have to go through all the time and trouble of building a brick oven.
When you heat a brick or stone chamber, the heat gets intense and is absorbed by the stone. This causes warmth to spread evenly throughout the entire heating area. Stone holds onto heat so once the chamber is hot, it takes a minimal amount of wood to keep it well over 500 degrees Fahrenheit.
Outdoor brick pizza ovens can reach very high temperatures, which makes them excellent for cooking foods like pizza. This is what gives the “crispness” to a really great pizza pie. And because the heat is even, there are no under cooked or overcooked areas, which can literally ruin the taste.
When you cook with very high and even heat, you drastically reduce the time it takes to cook pizzas. In fact, it may take less than five minutes to enjoy outstanding pizza. You can feed a large amount of people with ease.
Space and Convenience
There are two downsides to brick ovens. They take up a great deal of space and you cannot move them, once installed. However, these problems can easily be solved, if you purchase an oven made with special stones, which is mobile and takes up minimal space. These types of ovens are designed to deliver the same benefits of cooking with outdoor brick pizza ovens.
