Steps to Making a Wood-Fired Pizza in A Brick-Lined Oven

Home-baked pizza has always been a popular food served at events and outdoor parties. The flavors, crust, and aroma of the pizza combine to create an experience that’s hard to beat.

So, if you plan on making a pizza but have never cooked with a wood-fired oven, this post is for you.

1. Get An Outdoor Wood-Fired Pizza Oven Installed

If you have the space, it’s worth getting an outdoor wood-fired pizza oven installed. Even though they weigh about 800 lbs. when lined with bricks, it’s easy to transport them. And the best part? They do not require the use of heavy machinery, can be installed by 2 people in under 2 hours, and come with a maintenance and operation handbook.

There are several other reasons why people enjoy making wood-fired pizza in a brick-lined oven, including:

  • The brick lining of the oven provides a more authentic and traditional cooking experience. The bricks absorb and retain heat allowing the pizza to cook evenly on the bottom and top, and this helps create a crispy crust with the perfect amount of char.
  • The heavy-duty caster wheels on the oven allow for easy movement and versatility. This means that the oven can be easily moved to different outdoor locations, allowing for more flexibility in terms of where the pizza can be made. This can be especially useful for those who do not have a permanent outdoor cooking area.
  • Moreover, since these wood-fired pizza ovens are manufactured in New Zealand, they have durable and long-lasting aluminum bodies, making them a practical investment for those who plan on using them frequently.

  • Not only this but making wood-fired pizzain a brick-lined oven adds a level of flavor and depth to the pizza that cannot be achieved with a gas or electric oven. The wood smoke imparts a unique flavor to the pizza crust and toppings that will make your day!

2. Make Sure You Have All The Ingredients

Next, start by gathering all the ingredients you need for your pizza, including flour, yeast, salt, water, and any toppings you desire. Next, mix together the flour, yeast, salt, and water to create the pizza dough. Roll out the dough to your desired thickness and shape. Add your desired toppings to the dough. Carefully place the pizza on the oven tray using a large flat spatula. Bake the pizza for 5-8 minutes or until the crust is crispy and the cheese is melted and bubbly. Lastly, remove the pizza from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving. Enjoy.
