Dream of hosting your friends and family outdoors on a summer night, serving up plate after plate of mouth-watering, homemade pizza? Choosing the perfect wood-fired pizza oven is the first step to making this thought a reality.
When buying a wood-fired pizza oven, there’s one golden rule to keep in mind at all times: buy once and buy right. Buying a pizza oven is something you should only have to do once in a lifetime. It should last you for years and years. So, here are the top 4 things to consider when buying your very own wood-fired pizza oven.
It’s possibly the single most important thing to consider when buying a wood-fired pizza oven: who’s making it? Let’s compare wood-fired pizza oven manufacturers with conventional oven manufacturers. Though you may not be as well-versed in wood-fired pizza oven builders, it’s still equally important to choose a top notch manufacturer as it is when buying a regular oven. A brand like Miele, for example, is a highly regarded oven manufacturer. Find a wood-fired equivalent, like Sydney Fire Bricks.
You can’t go out and buy the biggest pizza oven if your outdoor area doesn’t allow for it. On the flip side of that, the only thing worse than buying a pizza oven that’s too big, is buying a pizza oven that’s too small! As our Nonna once told us, it’s better to have cooked too much than too little. Imagine the headache of hosting dinner for friends and family at your place, but you’ve got to cook the pizzas one at a time because you didn’t get the size up. Remember: buy once, and buy right.
3) Brick type
To buy the right pizza oven, you’ve got to buy the right bricks. Some bricks are far better at handling and retaining heat than others. Pizza ovens can produce hundreds of degrees of heat, so you can’t just go making a pizza oven out of any old red brick. Don’t stress: navigating the type of fire brick you need isn’t difficult. We recommend checking that your pizza oven manufacturer uses bricks that are rated to 1500 degrees, which is the gold standard for Sydney Fire Bricks. All ovens made by Sydney Fire Bricks use highly fire-resistant materials, giving you a durable, reliable oven.
A wood-fired pizza oven isn’t just a practical investment: it’s an aesthetic one too, especially if you’re particularly houseproud and have a flare for interior (or, in this case, exterior) design. We’re spoilt for choice when it comes to pizza oven styles: from the traditional, rustic ovens to the more contemporary ovens with stainless steel doors. Finding a style of pizza oven which complements the atmosphere of your home is essential.
