At New York Brick Oven, we love pizza! There’s a reason brick oven pizza is the best pizza you’ll ever have. In today’s post, we’re going to fill you in on all things brick oven pizza. Most importantly, we’re going to talk about why brick ovens make the perfect pizza.
What Is A Brick Oven?
A brick oven is what it sounds like. A brick pizza oven is an oven constructed of brick. Brick ovens are classic tradition in the pizza industry and around the world. The traditional steel oven is not ideal for baking proper Neapolitan pizzas. The heat transfer from brick to dough is much slower than from steel. Slower heat transfer helps prevent your delicious dough from burning.
The vaulted construction of a brick pizza oven provides even baking and the perfect temperature. Many of these brick ovens reach upwards of 700ºF for perfect Neapolitan pizzas. At New York Brick Oven, we offer a wide array of traditional and new technology ovens. What do we mean by new technology? Revolving pizza ovens. These gas-powered pizza ovens are perfect for any fast-casual pizza restaurant. The revolving rack allows the pizza to bake evenly and quickly.
When Was The Brick Pizza Oven Invented?
Brick ovens themselves have been around for more than 4,000 years. The brick pizza came from Naples in the 1800s. Naples, where our favorite, and equally delicious, Neapolitan pizza comes from is the birthplace of pizza. In this small Italian village, this world-changing food was invented. Then, the brick pizza oven introduced a new way of cooking. For thousands of years, there hadn’t been much innovation.
Brick ovens also give your pizza a smoky flavor that you won’t gain from a traditional oven. The wood and smoke provide a rich layer of deliciousness that’s unmatched.
So, brick ovens provide an authentic flavor that pizza connoisseurs have come to know and love. At New York Brick Oven, we strive to maintain that rich tradition of making delicious pizza for years to come.
