The smoky, wood-fired flavour takes your food to a whole new level of mouth-watering goodness. So, if you’ve been thinking of having a fling with an outdoor pizza oven for a while, it’s time to indulge yourself. Here’s a few of our favourite dishes to cook in your wood fired pizza oven.

They’re warm, wholesome and tasty and even their name is fun to say: focaccias! Choose classic fillings like turkey and mozzarella or salmon and avocado. Then get your dough, bake it in the wood-fired oven and enjoy a beautiful home-cooked lunch.
Beer can chicken
Love a cooked chook? This is method of cooking the classic Australian roast chicken will blow your mind… and your tastebuds!

It remains lovely, fresh and moist even at incredibly high temps.
