There’s something about the warming, rich taste of brick oven pizza that simply cannot be replicated by any other pizza making method. So we did a little research to figure out exactly why it’s so delicious.
Higher Cooking Temperatures
Heat radiates out from the heat source, which in this case is a wood fire, and is spread around the oven. This heat is ultimately absorbed by the interior brick walls and radiates across the dome very evenly while the floor of the oven remains slightly cooler. This is the type of environment that makes an exceptional pizza!
Faster Cooking Time
Because of the high heat stores in the dense walls, a brick oven is designed to cook pizza quickly. It takes about 3 minutes maximum for a pizza to cook, which is great if you want to churn out a lot of pizzas!
Only a wood-fired brick oven pizza can impart that smoky flavor.
At such high temperatures, the radiant heat from the fire crisps up the outside of the pizza rapidly and seals off any moisture in the dough. The result is a puffy, soft crust that will never get soggy.
The intense heat and constant airflow generated in the brick oven seals and cooks the toppings evenly and quickly. The vegetable toppings will be crispier, and the cheese will have an appealing color and smoky flavor.
The unique flavor and presentation of a brick oven pizza can cause any foodie to wish that they owned a brick oven of their own. Luckily, you don’t need one. Visit us at Pie-O-Mine and either personalize your brick oven pizza or choose from one of our many Specialty Pizzas!
