4 Types of Pizza Ovens For Better Pizza Experience
Brick Pizza Ovens
Authentic pizza is categorised by its rustic looking and tasting crust that brings in the essence of classic Italian pizzeria right onto your table. The brick oven works on wood-fire (and is thus also known as wood-fired pizza oven) and once it has been fired up, the oven temperature reaches as high as 700°F to 1000°F. The built of a brick pizza oven is such that it circulates heat and hot air evenly throughout its interiors thereby ensuring even cooking of the pizza. The pizza wood-fire oven can be used in home and as well as in commercial spaces. The overall time taken to cook a pizza is quite less and the heat from the wood-fire adds a tinge of rustic flavours to the pizza, cooks the sauces properly and keeps the toppings moist.
The benefits of using a Brick Pizza Oven:
- Maintaining the heat inside a brick pizza oven is easy and simple. Once the oven gets heated adequately, the flame can be turned down to minimum without any loss in heat
- Due to the high range of temperatures that this oven reaches and maintains, pizza cooks completely in just 2-4 minutes
- The wood-fired oven adds a unique flavour to the pizza that is just like the essence of the old timed Italian pizzeria. The sauces and toppings cook to their best
- Maintaining a brick pizza oven is not time-consuming. It is rather simple and easy
Pizza Convection Ovens
Convection Pizza Ovens has been around for long and is known for its ability to heat-up real quick. The pizza oven, once heated, circulates the heat thoroughly its interiors. The usual build of the pizza oven retains the heat and evenly cooks the pizza. The fact that heat keeps recirculating itself in the interiors ensures there is plenty of heat to cook every layer of the pizza dough. Moreover, the oven takes much less power to reach the desired oven temperature and further retention that keeps the energy in check.
The benefits of using Pizza Convection Ovens
- Food cooks faster in a convection oven as the hot air blows directly on the surface of the food. Such method cooks food 25% faster than it would if cooked otherwise
- Pizza convections ovens create a dry environment in the closed space it is operating in. This dehydrates the dough adequately and cooks the pizza dough more evenly. Such dehydration keeps interiors of the toppings moist, enhances and seals the flavour
- A convection pizza oven saves energy because of its ability to retain heat in its interiors and by virtue of recirculation.
- Usually, pizza ovens have hot spots where the oven temperature is high depending on where the heating element is. The presence of a fan in the oven ensures proper circulation of heat eliminating hot spots entirely
Conveyor Pizza Ovens
Conveyor pizza ovens use the classic mechanical means of supply transportation - conveyor belts. These commercial pizza ovens are highly efficient and are used by pizza giant companies for mass production of pizza. Such ovens run on gas or electric mode of heating that depends on the type of pizza being cooked. These pizza ovens have the capacity to yield a large number of pizzas in one round of cooking. The ready pizza with sauce and toppings is placed on the conveyer belt and is made to convey around the heating element. Once the pizza gets cooked (time-dependent), the conveyor belt shifts and takes the pizza for packaging. The only drawback in using such an oven is that it fails to exactly create the authentic flavour of an classic Italian pizzeria.
The benefits of using Conveyor Pizza Ovens:
- The conveyor pizza oven prevents drying of the food by keeping the heat constant and the moisture content intact
- Large scale production of a single type of pizza becomes possible with the use of conveyor pizza oven
- The forced air method of cooking forms a membrane around the food’s surface that seals moisture content while the food is being cooked
- The pizza oven is easy to operate and is super efficient in handling mass production of pizza
Deck Pizza Ovens
Owning a pizza oven comes with the responsibility of having enough space to accommodate one. Deck Oven is a smaller-sized cousin of Brick pizza oven. The only difference is in the size and the built. In case of a deck pizza oven, the interior of the oven has stone slabs in it and a gas or electric mode of heating. The oven temperature inside the deck pizza oven reaches 400 °F to 600 °F. The oven also adds a hint of authentic pizza flavours into the cooking which makes it somewhere near to the wood-fired pizza oven.
The benefits of using Pizza Convection Ovens
- The pizza oven stone cooking adds more flavours to the crust, sauce and the toppings because of the natural minerals present in it
- Deck pizza cooking involves layered cooking where the pizza starts to cook from the bottom to the top surface. Such cooking is thorough
- The pizza oven stone is used to hold up more heat than metal would and this increases the rate at which pizza gets cooked inside the oven
- Cleaning and maintaining the pizza oven stone is relatively easy as it is not vulnerable to rusting and requires less cleaning efforts
