THE TRADITIONAL WOOD FIRED OVEN - A PREHISTORIC MARVEL


Terra Forno ovens are designed to bake and cook to

perfection the best pizza and breads.

Benefits of cooking in your TF wood & gas fired dual oven.

  • Wood fired ovens can cook pizza really quickly as compared to conventional ovens, which max out at 250 deg C, a wood fired oven can reach 500°C temperature when fully hot.

  • The perfect Neapolitan pizza needs this high temperature ( ideally 350°C at the bottom ) and cannot be cooked in an electric oven.High temperatures occur only in the wood fired oven, ideal for cooking.

  •  Mozzarella cheese does not handle well in low temperatures. The only way to cook it properly is in a high heat environment in your Terra Forno  wood fired oven .

  • High thermal conductivity of steel ( ~50 W/mK ) vs that of firebrick (~0.5 W/mK ) proves that conventional ovens with steel parts have a tendency to burn the toppings  even before the dough can even cook. Your Terra Forno oven is designed to cook it evenly and thoroughly to perfection.

  • Wood fired ovens store the energy in them by way of their appropriate thermal mass, and cook the pizza to perfection by way of conduction, convection and radiation. This makes the pizza cook thoroughly and well.

  • Thermal mass of the oven is a key factor in deciding the cooking quality, efficiency and robustness of the oven.
