So my Italian husband found this little pizza oven due to his unhealthy obsession with eating authentic wood burning oven pizza. It cooks 12 inch pizzas on a "pietra refrattaria" which is the special stone used in traditional pizzeria ovens in Napoli. The stone keeps a consistent temperature in order for optimal cooking. The little oven can reach a temperature of 850 degrees F, which is almost to the 900 degree F in traditional ovens. This baby cooks our pizzas in four minutes flat! Also in our house we make very simple pizza, dough + tomato sauce(comprised of only strained tomatoes no extra spices) + olive oil + salt and maybe a little oregano + fresh mozzerella and basta!
