Wood Fired Pizza Ovens - No Foodies back garden is complete with out Wood fired oven
26 May 2016

Now Pizza ovens are part of the garden furniture and offer a great alternative to barbecuing. Wood Fired cooking in your favourite pizza oven is not limited to cooking Neapolitan pizzas and sour dough breads, the ovens can be used to smoke meats, roast pork and chicken, cook fish, juicy king prawns or even a sweet apple crumble.

These social garden appliances retail the heat and the base in side gets so hot that you can sear meat to lock in the juices and give create flavours that are heard to replicate in your kitchen. These versatile wood fired ovens are fast becoming very popular because they can be used throughout the year, popular with all foodies. If you have not seen one up close, when you do you will remember that day for the rest of your life and will be excused for thinking that you couldn’t afford such a luxury. Because of the popularity of wood fired ovens they are fast becoming the popular choice, when you consider you can buy a  small one that will cook a 12” pizza for around £100. If you fancy a bit of salmon coloured ceramic on the door, there are lots of exotic choices that can empty your wallet of £3000.

For some the idea of a building their own DIY pizza oven is far more fun and kits are readily available online. There are books on how to build a wood fired pizza oven’s to help further understand how to build your own. Building the base is simple, then put the oven on top and within a very short amount of time they are ready.

When lighting a wood fired oven, it’s important to use very dry wood (like ours) Kiln dried logs are best so it doesn’t smoke out your neighbours and so that the oven gets up to its ideal temperature quickly. Pizza ovens are perfect for cooking foods at very high temperatures, far hotter than the oven in your kitchen at home. Reaching around 400 °C - 425°C (800 °F) a thin-based pizza will cook in around 90 seconds. For cooking a roast generally the temperature needs to come down to around 200 °C - 230°C (800 °F), then for slow cooking the temperature would be around 80 °C - 100°C.

Slow cooking meats ( or veg!) will change your world. The Smokey flavours this creates is hard to beat, pulled pork being a definite 1st thing to try. Thicker walls of at least 4” is the key to success to slow cook Beef, it will be inside for around 5 hours for the magic to happen. Some ovens are designed to be better at holding the heat from the pizza logs burning.

Depending on how long you want to cook for will help you decide what wood to use. Silver birch is great for heating the wood fired oven, and has a slight sweet smelling smoke, great for a light smoke that isn’t over powering. Kiln dried ash logs are perfect for those who enjoy a slightly more smoky flavour to their cooking. It also has the benefit of being slightly more long lasting, so if you are cooking for a while or for a few guests then add some of this in once you have the heat up to make it last longer. Then for the ultimate joy, add Olive Wood. In Italy, this is the wood of choice as its dense grain lends itself to extended burning times and with flavours that will literally blow you away, burning olive wood on your oven is a big thing  and should be indulged.

To clean a pizza oven at the end isn’t required which is another favourite characteristic of cooking with wood in a wood fired oven, as the heat will burn off any grease left over. Burning dry wood produces very little ash so there isn’t a need  to clean that out very often.

The mobile pizza oven revolution is set to continue to grow. These mobile catering trailers, Citroën H Vans are converted to house the oven in the back and are popping up in street food markets around London and the UK. Bristol and Brighton’s foodie scenes are no different and these retro food stalls are helping bring the joy of wood fired ovens to the masses in a town near you. These foodie entrepreneurs are pimping their services at weddings, parties and setting up pitches in pubs, railway stations and market towns.

Burning kiln dried logs has now become something that can be enjoyed all year round in your oven and not just in a wood burning stove. Popular wood fired oven manufacturers to google are brands such as, The Bushman Wood Fired Ovens, The Stone Bake Oven Company, Fornetto , Gozney Ovens, Forno Bravo, Jamie Oliver Dome60, Alfa Pizza.

We took our first delivery of logs from you a few weeks ago and have been really please with the service. The logs burn hot and clean, smell wonderful, and the silver birch looks really attractive, which is a bonus since we keep a store in our living room. The delivery was fast and the guy who brought the logs was very helpful and friendly and offered to stack all the logs, although we didn’t need it. I’m just about to put in my next order. Thanks and all the best,

Just thought I'd give you some feedback on the delivery I had from you yesterday. Really pleased with everything, the logs are brilliant - so much better quality/dryness than the last supplier we had and I loved the guy that delivered them, he was so nice and friendly, really helpful - nothing was too much trouble. Really happy that we've found such a great new firewood supplier - thank you.

Great stuff thank you, arrived on time, lovely dry logs, makes winter that little bit better; will use you again

Ian

Clapham

I thought the quality of service and the quality of product was great. Friendly, helpful staff and a hassle-free delivery at a convenient time. The only painful part of the process was carrying the logs through the house! The website gives you lots of information about what's on offer, how to order, etc. and the idea of suggesting three delivery slots worked really well.

Sarah Watson

London, E11

Thanks for the fuel delivery. It was better for me coming in the morning rather than the afternoon and the delivery guy couldn't have been more helpful. Will definitely use you guys next time.

Peter Lewis

London

It was great on time. good value. marvellous. and a much needed hour long early morning work out for me moving half a ton of wood from the street to my woodshed, log by log...honestly, very happy. thanks.

Giles Coren

London

Logs are great and Barney was as well. Super nice guy and professional. Better logs than what I ordered from BuyFirewooddirect.co.uk. They also weren't willing to help out with my back injury. My neighbour just bought a stove so I will reach out to him about ordering a couple of pallets of loose wood as to give you more business and cut down my costs. Enjoy the weekend.

Christopher Tancredi

London

Excellent service as always

Jon Dickens

London

This company is fabulous as not only are they wonderfully efficient about delivery and communication but the products they offer are of excellent quality and I wholeheartedly recommend them.

Dr Vicky Jolliffe

Excellent service from initial ordering on the website (super easy), clearly defined logs and descriptions and it was great the logs arrived on time. They were put under our porch as it was raining (thank you!) and they therefore remained really dry. The silver birch logs where exactly the right size for my small fire and burn really well and smell lovely. Having tried lots of other log companies on-line (who said their logs were small and they were not), I will definitely use Log-Delivery.co.uk again.

Ashleigh

North London

The logs arrived on time & as described on the website. They smell great & produce lots of heat when burnt. The delivery man was very friendly, cheerful & gave a good customer service, which makes such a difference. Thank you!

Mr Paragreen

London E1

Wonderful service and honest people warm house I don't want to leave such a good log fire thank you.

Krithia Wildfire

London SW20

I would like to say how impressed we were of the service we received. I was expecting the delivery to be left at the top of our garden but when we arrived home from work we were pleasantly surprised to find the logs neatly stacked in the passage to the garden (with is down several steps ). I will certainly be using your company in the future.

Simon Earley

Walton-Upon-Thames

Very impressed as a first time user of Log-Delivery. From Tom who took my order, to the chap who delivered. Very good customer service, delivery came well within the 3 hr window which makes a huge change from having to stay in all day or pay extra for a rare Saturday delivery. Would definitely recommend

Jean Acheson

Kingston-Upon-Thames

As before we're very happy with the level service (both on the phone and from the driver) and with the quality of your logs. No fuss, excellent logs and just what you promised.
