Pizza has become comfort food for some people and convenience food for time-starved individuals. Some might even argue that it is one of the most incredible food ever created.

Cooking pizza in your indoor kitchen requires pre-heating, which may be time-consuming. That is an inconvenient scenario, especially if you have family and friends waiting to taste the goodness of the pizza straight out of the oven.

For an enjoyable pizza party in your backyard, how about using an outdoor wood-fired pizza oven? Convenient, ergonomic, and portable—what more can you ask for? You can take it anytime, anywhere!

What is a Wood-Fired Pizza Oven?

Wood-fired pizza ovens are standard in real pizzerias. You need to build a wood fire over the cooking surface to heat this oven to your desired temperature. Pizzas cooked in wood-fired ovens deliver a unique and smoky taste of Neapolitan-style that you cannot achieve with charcoal briquettes or coal.

Benefits of Cooking Pizza with a Wood-Fired Oven

You might have seen the beauty and convenience of having an outdoor pizza oven in one of your magazines or on your social media. It probably aroused your interest to grab one for yourself. However, once you decided to get one, this is where the bulk of work comes in. There are several factors to consider when getting a pizza oven—you need to think out of the box.

To support the idea of why you should get an outdoor wood-fired pizza oven, let us do the honor of guiding you through this list:

It fits the small space in your backyard.

Not too long ago, outdoor pizza ovens were immovable installations and gigantic. They were only meant for large backyard space. But not anymore. Today, outdoor pizza ovens come in many sizes. Most are even portable!

Albeit small, it can create a crisp crust while adding a slightly smoky flavor that is impossible to develop in an indoor oven. So if your backyard space is limited, how about a portable one that you can set up at a moment's notice?

It can retain the nutrients in food.

When you prepare your food in a wood-fired oven, expect it to be cooked in no time. This speed allows it to retain the nutrients and antioxidants that might otherwise be lost in a longer cooking time.

It enhances and boosts the flavors of foods

If you have tried a wood-fired-cooked pizza, you might have noticed the significant difference in taste compared to a traditional home oven. Due to the even heat distribution, wood-fired cooking enhances the pizza's flavor. It imparts a smoky flavor and unique texture that an ordinary oven cannot achieve.

It shows versatility at its finest.

While we call it an outdoor oven pizza, these versatile fireplaces can cook other foods too. You can cook vegetables like Brussel sprouts or artichokes over it, or thick steaks, and bread. You can also cook fish with it, but others don't like the odor of fish.

It saves energy.

A wood-fired oven does not require electricity and gas to operate. The only energy source of this type of oven is the heat from the fire. This quality makes it a green option, which suits all eco-warriors who love pizza at the same time.
