5 Facts About Woodfired Pizza Ovens

1# Temperature

Woodfired Pizza ovens are becoming more and more popular, we supply kiln dried wood for cooking with these ovens, we sell to woodfired pizza vans, restaurants and people with a woodfired pizza oven in their garden.

Woodfired pizza ovens heat up to 700 to 800 degrees Fahrenheit and can cook a pizza in a minute.

2# Positioning

The kiln dried wood is lit in the oven and when the oven gets hot and ready for cooking the logs are pushed to one side, producing a flame over the top of the oven that cooks the food.

When you start a fire in a woodfired pizza oven use natural firelighters and some kiln dried kindling together with a stack of kiln dried wood.
