Pizza Ovens & Accessories
When you’re planning to have a pizza party at home with friends or just with your family, a pizza oven is a great way to achieve restaurant-quality pizza in your own backyard. An outdoor pizza oven is a specialized oven designed for baking pizzas outdoors. Unlike indoor ovens, outdoor pizza ovens are typically fueled by wood or gas like propane and can reach higher temperatures, allowing you to cook pizzas quickly and achieve that crispy, charred crust that is typical of artisanal pizzas.
Setting up an outdoor pizza oven station requires some planning and preparation, but it can provide a great way to enjoy outdoor living while also enjoying delicious homemade pizza. Before you begin, you’d need to decide if you want a wood-fired oven, an electrical one, or a fuel pizza oven with burners. Each oven has different requirements that need to be taken into consideration when installing. You could look into brick ovens that are wood burning, fed with wood pellets and logs or Roccbox’s wood and gas-powered ovens.
Select an oven that fits your needs and budget. Options include pre-built ovens, modular kits, and DIY plans. Consider factors such as size, fuel type, heating capacity, and insulation. You can also look at compact ovens that don’t take up much space and can be placed on tabletops or stone surfaces. They should generally be kept off the ground, or raised since this will give the bottom space for ventilation.
Once you have set the oven up, a work area near the oven should be made, where you can prepare the pizza dough and toppings. Consider installing a countertop or table and storage space for utensils, ingredients, and firewood. Making the pizzas is the best part of this entire process. Once the dough has risen, play around with the different toppings and cook the pizzas by putting them into your wood burning oven, fuel pizza oven to cook pizzas. Experiment with different styles and get great pizzas in your own backyard. Shop at Target.com to find the perfect wood-fired oven, or gas oven to make pizzas of your choice.
