Pizza is one of the most joyfully shared meals around, and has been for quite some time. But when you’re choosing between a boring oven-baked pie and one of our brick oven specialties, here’s why brick oven pizzas are better and should be your choice:
- Crust Texture: For some, pizza is all about the ingredients and toppings, but for others, it’s about the crust! A pizza baked in a brick oven will come out a fluffy, light crust that has just a hint of smoky flavor. We don’t know about you, but that sounds much better to us than a thick, hard-to-chew crust on a normal oven-baked pizza. It’s also a lot better than those soggy, greasy crusts you find on
- Unique Taste: You just can’t reproduce the delicious, slightly smoky flavor of real brick oven pizza in your home oven. The super high temperatures of brick ovens produce a special flavor, while cooking the pizza’s toppings evenly. Veggies will be crispier, cheese won’t burn, and the overall flavor will be tasty and unique.
- Faster Bake Time: Heat radiates from the heat source and spreads evenly around the oven. Since a brick oven gets super hot inside (between 570 to 660 degrees) and the brick walls store such high heat, it only takes a couple of minutes to cook a delicious pizza. Additionally, the heat is spread evenly around the oven with a slightly cooler surface beneath the pizza, making for a really good, evenly cooked pizza pie!
- Better Nutrition: Because the brick oven pizzas will cook faster, the vitamins and nutrients stored in your pizza’s toppings will stick around to benefit your health. Long-baking normal pizzas have a tendency to get dried out and many nutrients are sucked out, but your brick oven pizza will produce a pie covered in crisp, nutrient-rich toppings (of course, depending on what you top your pizza with).
