Wood Fired Pizza Recipes at the best place on earth! (Well, locally anyway.)
It got me thinking though. Wood fired pizza isn’t local for everyone, although everyone should try it at least once. A good wood fired pizza can put any oven baked pizza to shame. So I did a little scrounging around and I found a great diy on how to turn your regular oven into a brick fire oven. This method kicks your oven up to 700+ degrees versus the regular 500 degrees. While it’s not perfect – a “real” brick oven for wood fired pizza can take three people up to three days to build – it does offer some interesting results. You can find the how to for making your own pizza oven at boing boing. If you’d rather take the time to construct the real deal – because you know the foodie in you is just dying to! – there’s a diy for building a pizza oven from sand at Instructables or one from bricks with free plans from Forno Bravo. They even make and sell kits for this, though you certainly don’t need a kit to build one.
Have you ever tried brick oven wood fired pizza? If so, what’s your favorite combination to eat and your favorite place to dine? Be sure to include the city and state in case we come traveling through your neck of the woods!
