Authentic Wood Fired Brick Oven ~ Pizza Ovens
Having a Forno Classico wood fired brick oven in your home is the start of a new lifestyle. A Forno Classico in your yard or garden will bring your friends and family together while getting you outside in all seasons. Cooking in these ovens forces you to slow down, to reconnect with food and work with the fire and nature. The cooking experience becomes a truly wonderful experience each time you use the oven. You will learn traditional cooking styles, add new flavours to dishes and change the way you think about food forever. And make great pizza while doing it.
Yet, Forno Classico wood fired brick ovens are about more than just pizza, even if they are commonly called pizza ovens. They are as versatile as any kitchen oven, and do so much more. Not only can they bake breads, turn out golden vegetables, but cooking next to the open fire brings out unique flavours in every dish. And the smoke infiltrating the food makes the best holiday turkey’s.
Forno Classico brick ovens have important cooking advantages. The natural terra cotta used for the cooking floor and dome is unsurpassed in producing and maintaing high temperatures. Our wood fired brick ovens made in Santa Barbara, produce the distinctive flavor and unsurpassed crust consistency that is the hallmark of the legendary “Napoletana” pizza. Pizzas cook in one to two minutes.
Forno Classico ovens are versatile. Our ovens retain heat over a longer period of time than other commercially available cement ovens.
