The Best Pizza Oven Ever!

I’m not exaggerating when I say that pizza cooked in a fiercely hot clay pizza oven is the best you will ever taste. Why are they better than pizzas cooked in the gas or electric oven in your home? It’s all about the heat! The oven in your home will reach a maximum temperature of around 250° C. A clay pizza oven, fired for a few hours, will reach temperatures well in excess of 400° C and it’s this furnace-like heat that turns a thin circle of dough, topped with oil, meat and cheese, into an absolute gourmet treat!

Pizzas cooked in a clay oven take no longer than 2 minutes to cook. They have thin, crisp and slightly charred bases while the toppings remain delicious and full of flavour. Is your mouth watering yet? The eBook contains a chapter on how to make perfect pizzas in your oven including an excellent and simple dough recipe.

Here are a few quotes from the clay pizza-oven blog visitors:


We did it! Today we baked about 80 pizza’s, in a 6 hour session (We refired the oven for an hour halfway), the whole school ate pizza today. It was a hell of a build, especially because the weather was not always nice to us, but we made it. Best pizza ever – Wouter Janssens, Europe.


The nice taste of pizza baked in a wood oven occurs because of the scents the burned wood gives off, it kind of “smokes” or “cures” the pizza (so to speak). If you use different kinds of wood, it will change the taste of the pizza slightly – Thiago, Portugal.


I can attest to the quality of the pizzas cooked in this very oven – quite splendid! – Mike Summers, UK
