How To Cook a Wood Fired Pizza

We’re sure that just about everyone would agree that pizza cooked in a wood-fired oven is extra tasty! Take a look at our guide for how to cook the perfect, delicious wood-fired pizza! 

Prepping the Oven

Once the pizza dough has been made, it’s time to heat your oven. While a traditional wood-fired pizza oven could take as long as 24 hours to fully heat up, Cookshack Inc.’s pizza oven is fully heated in under an hour! With this pizza oven, you’re also able to adjust the heat from 170-900°F, so you’re not limited to just pizza! 

With this temperature control, you can try your hand at calzones, quesadillas, Stromboli, desserts, and more! While your pizza oven is warming, you can roll out your dough, and prepare your pizza! 

Cooking the Pizza

Pizza baking is a dynamic process—after placing your prepared pizza onto a lightly floured pizza peel, put the pizza into the oven and give the peel a slight jerk to move the pizza to the oven floor. 

Due to the high temperature, the crust should begin to puff up and cook immediately. After approximately 40 seconds, slip the peel under the pizza and rotate it 180 degrees to ensure that it’s evenly cooked. Make sure you don’t shift the pizza too far to one side of the oven, as this could cause it to burn.

You should expect your pizza to cook much faster than a conventional oven! The Cookshack Inc. pizza oven will cook your handcrafted pizza over real wood flames in just 3 minutes! When the pizza is done, the crust will be nicely browned, the cheese melted, and the other ingredients bubbling. All that’s left is to remove it from the oven, slice it, and enjoy!
