Building a Pizza Oven

Building a Pizza Oven

For the Ultimate Pizza at Home!

For many people struggling to plan holidays, investing in their gardens has been a great source of pleasure and when eating out is not as easy as it once was, creating the food you love at home is a great idea. Building a pizza oven in your garden may not have occurred to you, but there are substantial differences in flavour and presentation with pizzas cooked traditional way.

For the real pizza enthusiast, a real wood-fired brick oven is the ultimate. There is nothing that cooks a pizza in quite the same way, as the very high temperatures generated are needed to get that elusive thin, crisp layer of smoky char covering a moist, airy crust. To buy these communally, these types of ovens are frequently large, expensive, and complicated to build, leaving most of the pizza loving population eating something that tastes far more ordinary, cooked at a much lower temperature and without that authentic Italian taste. The good news is that there are a number of ways they can be built which give great results at a fraction of the cost and multiple design ideas for building a pizza oven yourself are appearing online all the time!

Whilst FireTile does not endorse any particular method of pizza oven build, our best advice is simply to make sure that you use products that can stand the intense temperatures generated by pizza ovens.
