From cold they come up to temp in under 90 minutes,  making it ideal for our temperamental weather and being big enough to cater for from 2 to 80 people. If the oven was used the day before, they come up to temperature in 20-30 minutes when using good quality wood and following our lighting instructions.

The Pizza Oven is rustic in finish and comes waterproofed in a light brown colour. The oven is very safe to use. The insulating aggregates that we use mean that the oven rarely overheats on the outside and plants can be planted right up to the edge of the oven. The oven, as standard, comes with a refractory tiled floor which is ideal for cooking most things including pizza bread, kleftiko, slow roast casseroles, and hot smoking.

The Pizza Oven includes the floor of the oven the special oven dome, a wedge door and a lid for the chimney to keep the animals out.

The economical use of logs is important to maintain the best cooking temperatures. Oak and Beech are among the best for achieving this, whereas fruit woods are best for adding flavors. We also recommend osolomeo for ease and consistency. The fire is normally built and maintained inside the oven on the right hand side using 3 – 4 split logs at a time. The remainder of the floor is then used as the direct cooking surface adjacent to the fire. Bread baking, slow roasting and stews can be cooked with the fire ash left in or raked out, and the wedge door in position.

Please note:

  • The oven floor weighs approximately 110 kg.
  • The oven dome weighs approximately 170 kg.
  • A fully insulated oven usually weighs about 650 kg.
