Home made pizza
Few foods are loved quite as much as pizza, so if you’re planning a garden get-together this summer, you’ll be on to a winner with your very own pizza oven. The question is, are you a folder, roller, or a rare knife-and-forker?
Rich tomato sauce… oozing mozzarella cheese… wonderfully soft dough… it can only be pizza. Whether you’ve already perfected your trusty pizza dough recipe or are just getting into Italian cookery, our range of outdoor ovens and pizza cookers will help you create authentic slices in as little as 60 seconds. Pizza making is an activity that’s fun for the whole family, and who knows, after a summer of floury aprons and rolling pin fun, you may just have a budding little pizzaiolo on your hands.
It all starts with pizza dough
Our tip for the perfect pizza dough recipe is to keep things simple. A combination of 300ml cold water, 10g salt, 7g fresh yeast or 2g instant dried yeast, and 500g “00” flour is all you need to get delicious dough every time. We’ve shared Ooni’s full method over on our blog – along with some of their most mouth-watering recipes. Will you opt for a classic margherita? Or go green with a kale, green bean, aubergine, and cauliflower vegan pizza? It’s time to get creative, and settle that age-old ‘pineapple-on-a-pizza’ debate once and for all...
Which pizza oven will it be?
When it comes to choosing your oven, we have gas-powered, wood-fired, and multi-fuel options available from Ooni, ranging from 12 to 16 inches depending on how many hungry pizza-lovers you need to feed. Each one can reach scorching temperatures of up to 500°C, turning out dough even the Italians would be proud of. Plus, these lightweight pizza ovens can be easily transported to just about anywhere, so you can enjoy delicious home-made pizza wherever and whenever that crust craving strikes.
