Why Brick Ovens Make The Perfect Pizza

Why Brick Ovens Make The Perfect Pizza

 

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.

Quatro Stagione from NY Brick Oven Co at Goodfellas on Hylan

Top 5 ways to succeed in the pizza industry.

There are several areas that are key to success and while all these areas are important any one is not the end all and be all to a successful formula. I’m sure you can think of that local chain that has the worst pizza in town and yet you see their delivery vehicles everywhere you go.
My own personal mystery was a pizza place in Brooklyn that was run by a guy with no personality that I am sure inspired the soup Nazi years later with his disrespect and rudeness to his customers. Aside from the pizza makers smoking while they made pizza, he would tell you to eat the unburnt part of the pie if you dared to complain.
How about the places that are so far off the beaten path you need a guide to find them or better yet they have no name on the joint? You can’t make this stuff up but it gives one hope that there is room for all of us to succeed.
I want to qualify this as my own personal opinion from working with, knowing and visiting with hundreds of pizza men and women all over the country. By no means is this THE BIBLE OF PIZZA or to be taken as law but it will give you a pretty good idea of what to concern yourself with if your new to the game, stale or in deep trouble.

  1. Location, Location, Location-the best way is to be the only game in town or be in a tourist location where there are no other options available or the ones available are of no consequence due to being very expensive or a different and specialized category like a fish house.  Some the most successful places specialized in malls, theme parks, schools, military bases or small town USA.

 

  1. Make the best pizza known to man or there about. If you are making a really top notch product people will find you and not only that, people will talk. Word of mouth is the best advertising it has been said. The reason for this is that people will trust the opinion of friends and family over silly unfounded claims of the best pizza in town and such advertised in the local paper.

 

  1. Be unique. Examples of this are everywhere but they may not seem apparent. Like making a Chicago pie where there never was one, having a wood burning brick oven, using insects as a topping or having a pizza drive through like OL Jose’s in Pineville West Virginia where they are using a revolving brick oven.

 

  1. Be a social maniac. Take pride in being part of your community. Before there was social media, there were social men and women. These wonderful people actually cared about the people they met and considered customers as friends to share joys and sorrows with. One very moving example of this is when people would come to Goodfella’s Pizza in Staten Island on their way home from work in the days after 911 just to get out of the house and be with people who cared in a friendly and safe environment. There are many examples I can think of; like the guy who coaches the local little league, the girl who hosts local heroes with pizza parties, the place that supports boy scouts, the place that sponsors Special Olympics or the guys that collect donations for slices to feed the homeless. There are so many ways to build good will in a community and give back while earning respect and loyalty that I could write a book about it but you get the idea.

 

  1. Service. Run a tight ship that gives service and shows genuine care for the customer’s experience. I don’t know about you but when I am ignored, the host is not pleasant, the server acts like he is doing me a favor, the table is dirty when I am seated or my unfamiliarity with ordering and the menu is treated with impatience, you have lost me, and more importantly, any future income my patronage may have brought. This may seem like a given but if you are not on top of this and setting a good example for your crew it will never happen. A little thing like a smile or help and directions can go a long way in building a relationship with your customers. One terrible example I won’t forget was having my little daughter with me in a new town when she had to use a bathroom so we walked into a place and we were treated so rudely I swore I would never visit that place. I understand the old “Bathrooms are for paying customers” routine but sometimes being human and having discretion can earn you a great deal of loyalty. In other words, if it isn’t costing you anything to be kind-always be kind. Believe it or not but this also includes salesmen wasting your time. Those salesmen are not only people but potential customers with family and friends that also eat.

While no list will guarantee your success, if you follow these points your odds will greatly be increased and if you earnestly follow point 5 you will contribute to a better world by treating your fellow citizens with courtesy. Happy pizza my friend and best wishes.

Discover Commercial Brick Ovens

Commercial brick ovens are evolving and now revolving.

Brick Façade Wood Gas Inferno

To be competitive in the brick oven pizza market you need a great commercial brick oven. What constitutes a great commercial brick oven you may wonder. Well there are only a few criteria when it comes to pizza equipment. Regardless if you have a fast casual pizza franchise, pizza chain, pub, bar, brewery, mom and pop, or mega entertainment center, the needs are same. 

First and foremost is durability.  The NY Brick oven Company has designed their ovens to be durable under tremendous production. Forged steel deck support and burner-not tin or a whole the oven floor. Heavy firebrick made of a specialty Italian Lava Stone with high thermal mass. Simple user friendly components such as American favorite-Honeywell.  

Second comes a world class product.  Champion pizza men from all over the US choose these ovens for their consistent and predictable baking quality. Even The Pizza School of NY trains future pizza champions on these ovens because they are that good! 

Third is consistency. This is achieved by several factors. The revolving or rotating deck allows the pizza to be  heated evenly and baked perfectly because it is constantly rotating at an even pace and the brick oven deck is being reheated as it goes. This virtually eliminated the inherent hot and cold spots of a fixed deck oven. Also in a conventional brick oven the surface of the deck around the fire or gas source is unusable because it gets too hot. This is does not happen with revolving deck brick oven. 

Fourth and equally important is the ease of operation and training involved in using the revolving or rotator brick oven. Because the pizza revolves you do not need to use long pizza peels to load or remove your pizza. You just place them in as it turns. You do not have to reach deep into a hot oven and you don’t have to constantly rotate and move your pizzas to get an even bake. This equates to an incredible amount of saving of both time and $$$ because you don’t need skilled labor to work the oven and your pizza man can place pies in the oven and get back to making more. 

Fifth is speed of delivery of your brick oven pizza. The NY Brick Oven Company set the world record at Pizza Expo with one of there ovens with an incredible 200 pizzas in 50 minutes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uoPRqNOYQ0U&t=11s

Pizza The Quick and the Dead

Pizza-The Quick and Dead.

In this fast-changing world, there is one thing for sure-SPEED of DELIVERY has a huge effect on volume, return customers and viability. How fast can you turn the tables? How fast can you get the deliveries and catering orders out? How many customers drive up and drive away when they see the long lines? How many customers stop ordering because your delivery time is too long? 

This is why so many operators are switching over to the New York Brick Oven Co. and their Revolving brick ovens.  These ovens set the World record at Pizza Expo and have proven themselves in the pizza battle around the country. Fueled by gas or gas and wood these ovens are both fast and consistent while having been compared to a Mack Truck for durability and a Ferrari for speed. The solid construction, heavy mass and Spitfire burner system ensures high output because the extra floor rotates and is radiantly heated evenly. This results in no hot spots, no cold spots and more importantly no having to continually shuffle the pizzas around in a hot oven. Another benefit to your employees is not having to reach into the oven with a long pizza peel because the pizza revolves and is in easy reach.  The trade secret extra dense cooking surface creates the perfect crust every time too.

Be ready to deliver and have the finest equipment in your place that will make it easier for you and your staff.  Since the oven is so easy to use it doesn’t require skilled labor and it is very easy to train new pizza makers to use.  This reduces training times and the need to pay highly skilled pizza makers.  World champion pizza men are using these ovens to make incredible artisan pizzas for their demanding customers so make your life easier and make that pizza faster become more profitable and manageable.

New York Brick Company gaining speed as it emerges as the leader in Pizza Wild West

Looking For Faster Better Pizza Now? Every pizza man knows that dreaded back up that occurs during the peak hours of business. These hours may vary but usually, it is lunch hour, dinner, weekends and holidays. Those are the times you wish you had more than one or 2 ovens. Well, it doesn’t have to be that way.

You can get as much as 2 -4 times your production of a conventional deck oven from a rotating oven. Not only that but the higher temperature of a brick oven that combines wood and gas fire makes it consistent too. Having the stone move around instead of having to reach into the oven makes it easier to work too. Just Imagine no skilled labor needed and quality pies, one after the other.  Versatility is another great benefit of the rotator brick oven. You can cook Pizza, Bread, Chicken, Steak, and Just About Anything You Can Cook In A Traditional Oven But Better!

You can bake different types of pies at the same time such as the classic fresh mozzarella brick oven style and the NY style with shredded cheese. Unlike a conveyor oven, you don’t have to rely on waiting to see if two different types of pizza are cooked because you can see your pizza bake and take them out one at a time in a revolving oven.  There are countless benefits to using a revolving brick-oven but speed and consistency are the ones that make you more money.

So Remember when it’s time to get Serious
