Do you have a wood fired pizza ovens or do you plan to buy or build one? Here are some tips that could go a long way in making your experience with it a great one every time.

Wood burning pizza ovens are your way of enjoying the outdoors every once in a while, of having a great meal and of getting people together in a fun, involved way.

To make sure that you get the best out of your oven each time, here are some tips you can follow:

1. The first is more of a recommendation and not really a tip. You must first check with your insurance to know how they feel about having outdoor wood burning pizza ovens on the property. It may not seem like a big deal, especially if you have taken proper precaution, but they could increase your homeowner’s premiums just because of it.

In dry times, it’s a fire hazard. If a tree happens to grow over it over the years, make sure to constantly trim it.

3. Always start your fire using kindling and not any kind of accelerant. They leave a smell behind that will end up on your pizza or whatever else you bake in there.

You need to investigate the best kind of wood that your can get to use for your pizza oven. There are some kinds of wood that are too smoky and you’ll have a problem even getting near the oven. If you identify a tree that grows nearby that’s good, you can collect some dry wood from there and save it for when you need to use it.

Wood burning pizza ovens are a good place for little animals and insects to hide if you haven’t used them in a long time. If you’ve stayed for more than a month without lighting a fire in it, make sure that you check first – there could be rodents and things hiding away there.

6. Give your wood burning oven time to heat up before you start to use it, and this can take even 4 hours depending on the wood you use and the kind of material it’s made of. Start your fire and then go back and start to make your food preparations so that by the time you’re done, your pizza oven is hot.

It’s not a must to do this, but wood burning pizza ovens give a lot of heat once they are on and for a long time. Get out your veggies, make little patties for the kids for tomorrow’s lunch or whatever you can think of, but its not worthwhile to light your wood burning pizza oven and then make just a pizza.

Of course you’ll discover more and more about how to make your wood fired pizza oven work better for you the more you use it, so get going!
