Summer is just around the corner and it is time to start think about what you can do to set your yard apart this summer. An outdoor pizza oven is a great way to encourage your family to spend more time outside and to make better use of the warmer months. Here are a few reasons why they are great and how to make best use of them.
1. You’ll be able to make delicious pizzas
Pizza ovens just make better pizza, it is as simple as that. Using the right flour and having the heat high enough allows for science to take over and results in a superior product that simply cannot be produced with a conventional oven. To get the texture of that crust just right, you really need to have a pizza oven.
2. Your pizza will be tasty and nutritious
For the most part, pizza doesn’t have to be an unhealthy meal. Yet in the western world we’ve sort of destroyed the pizza as it originally existed by making the crust too doughy and adding too much flavourless cheese. With a pizza oven, you’ll find that you can use fewer, high quality ingredients to achieve better results that both taste great and are nutritious.
3. You’ll be able to create a memorable experience
Having a pizza oven in your outdoor backyard allows you slow down at the end of each day and really enjoy the process of preparing your evening meal. You’ll have the unique aroma of a real fire, a relaxed outdoor atmosphere, and the promise of something exceptional to eat.
4. You don’t just have to cook pizza
What we now consider “pizza ovens” have been used for centuries to prepare all sorts of different kinds of food. In addition to the classic pizza, you can bake other types of bread and even use for your oven for roast meat, vegetables, and even desserts.
5. You’ll save time
The high heat means that your pizzas cook up fast. Locking in the freshness and nutritional value of the toppings they contain while making their way to the plate quickly. Because they are so fast, you can cook up pizza for a large crew without worrying that anyone is going to go hungry.
6. You’ll save energy
Pizza ovens are environmentally responsible because they don’t use much energy. In fact, if you use a wood-fired pizza over, you won’t be using any gas or electricity at all. This can be a nice way to save on some bills and do something good for the environment if wood is readily available where you live.
7. You’ll be able to socialize
Gathering around an outdoor pizza oven is a wonderful social activity. You can interact with family members or guests while you cook and don’t have to be isolated in another room. Due to the fact that outdoor pizza ovens are also still a relatively novel addition to any backyard, you already have a fun conversation point to begin sharing stories with your company. Trust us, no one is going to turn down an invitation to an authentic pizza making party.
8. You don’t have to break the bank
As outdoor pizza ovens have become more popular, there are now different models available on the market to suit all needs and budgets. Depending on how often you intend to use your outdoor pizza oven, or what kind of volume you’re hoping to produce, you can decide between bigger and smaller models. If you have the space in your backyard, you can go full out and create a really beautiful focal point with a big wood-fire pizza oven.
