There is no cooking appliance that will give more pleasure to someone who appreciates cooking than a wood fired oven.
Pizza is not the only thing you can do in a wood fired oven. Nothing is better for baking bread, and there's nothing like meats grilled or roasted by a wood fire. A wood-fired oven will dramatically alter the way you cook, while providing you genuine enjoyment.
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.
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.”
