Building A Outdoor Pizza Oven

Product description

In the past twenty years, interest in wood-fired ovens has increased dramatically in the United States and abroad, but most books focus on how to bake bread or pizza in an oven. From the Wood-Fired Oven offers many more techniques for home and artisan bakers—from baking bread and making pizza to recipes on how to get as much use as possible out of a single oven firing, from the first live-fire roasting to drying wood for the next fire.

From the Wood-Fired Oven offers a new take on traditional techniques for professional bakers, but is simple enough to inspire any nonprofessional baking enthusiast. Leading baker and instructor Richard Miscovich wants people to use their ovens to fulfill the goal of maximum heat utilization. Readers will find methods and techniques for cooking and baking in a wood-fired oven in the order of the appropriate temperature window. What comes first—pizza, or pastry? Roasted vegetables or a braised pork loin? Clarified butter or beef jerky? In addition to an extensive section of delicious formulas for many types of bread, readers will find chapters on:

•    Making pizza and other live-fire flatbreads;

•    Roasting fish and meats;

•    Grilling, steaming, braising, and frying;

•    Baking pastry and other recipes beyond breads;

•    Rendering animal fats and clarifying butter;

•    Food dehydration and infusing oils;

•    And myriad other ways to use the oven's residual heat.

Appendices include oven-design recommendations, a sample oven temperature log, Richard's baker's percentages, proper care of a sourdough starter, and more. . . .

From the Wood Fired Oven is more than a cookbook; it reminds the reader of how a wood-fired oven (and fire, by extension) draws people together and bestows a sense of comfort and fellowship, very real human needs, especially in uncertain times. Indeed, cooking and baking from a wood-fired oven is a basic part of a resilient lifestyle, and a perfect example of valuable traditional skills being put to use in modern times.

Thickness is 0.4 inch for the 13 inch stone 0.5 inch for the 16 inch stone. Pizza stones help distribute the heat evenly to the pizza or whatever else is in the oven. By its nature the stone also absorbs moisture for a crisp crust. Using the stone: Preferably set the cold stone in the oven and preheat the oven to your desired setting. Create your pizza on a pizza peel and when done transfer carefully to the now-hot stone. Alternatively you can build your pizza on the cold stone and transfer the whole thing into the oven. Stone care: You can prevent sticking by sprinkling some flour or cornmeal on the stone prior to using. Brush off any food residue and you can rinse it in water. NEVER use soap to wash the stone as it may leave a 'flavor in the stone.
