Title: Gas, Electric or Wood Burning: Which Pizza Oven is the Best?

(No Transcript)
  • Everybody loves pizza. Thats why theres so many
    restaurants and pizza joints around the world
    that serve it. But not all pizza is created
    equal. It turns out the oven your pizza is cooked
    in can make a big difference in how it turns out.

  • There are 3 types of pizza ovens wood burning,
    gas, and electric. Each of these ovens have their
    own advantages and disadvantages, and each type
    gives the pizzas it cooks a distinctive taste and

  • Capable of handling high volumes of pizza,
    usually up to six 12 pizzas at once.
  • Uses radiant heat to evenly cook the top and
    bottom of the pizza, making sure the crust is
    crispy and the toppings fully cooked.
  • Front-mounted doors make loading and unloading

  • Pizzas have to be rotated constantly at least
    once every 2-3 minutes or else theyll burn!
  • Using gas ovens is very labor intensive and
    requires constant vigilance.
  • Cooking pizzas in a gas oven is a very, very slow

  • Electric pizza ovens are more user-friendly than
    gas ovens.
  • Many are equipped with a deck, an extra heating
    element that cooks the pizza from the top as well
    as the bottom.
  • Some use brick, stone, or ceramic tiles to
    replicate the effect of a wood-burning oven.

  • Electric ovens often make dry pizzas with crusts
    that are too thin.
  • Try as they might, decks cant fully replicate
    the effect of cooking in a wood-burning oven.
  • Cold spots may appear between pizzas, requiring
    extra work to keep heat from escaping the oven.

  • Wood-burning pizza ovens are the original pizza
    ovens, and theyre still the best way to cook a
    pizza. Able to reach much higher temperatures
    than either a gas or electric oven, wood-burning
    pizza ovens cook faster and more thoroughly,
    producing tasty, authentic pies.

  • Wood-burning ovens harness the power of
    convection, which allows the hot air to circulate
    and cook the pizza just right. Crispy on the
    outside, warm in the center, and with all the
    toppings cooked just right!

  • Fontana Ovens Grills is the maker of
    high-quality wood-burning ovens that are perfect
    for cooking pizza, bread, meat, and everything in
    between. For more information, visit
