A wood fired oven quickly becomes the center all gatherings for friends and family in your home. The sight of flames dancing in an oven provides a sense of well-being and warmth in any kitchen even when not in use for cooking. Wood fired ovens and barbecues can be used for heating, although their main focus is cooking the very best meal possible and their quality of cooking cannot be matched by other appliances. Gas grills and ovens can’t match the quality and flavor of foods cooked with a real wood fire, which is why these appliances are as popular today as they have ever been. Actually, their popularity continues to grow at a steady pace with more and more people enjoying wood fired oven and barbecue cooking more and more each year.
Incidentally, there's no way that a regular oven will replicate what can be done in a wood fired oven. A pizza cooks in under 3 minutes right on the oven floor. The crust will be crisp on the bottom, and the toppings always come out beautifully melted, and perfectly cooked. “Regular ovens are simply not hot enough to do this.”
