There’s nothing quite like the taste of a pull from the oven-fresh wood-fired pizza that comes from an authentic wood-fired pizza oven. You may have even discovered the savory sustenance of wood-fired pizza at events you’ve been to in Sarasota.
But what is about these old-fashioned pizza ovens that give every pizza that perfectly crisp yet doughy crust along with incredible rustic flavors? It’s as if the fire gods kissed every inch of the crust, cheese, sauce, and toppings.
Here at Montilio’s On-the-Go, we specialize in the once lost art of wood-fired pizzas—if you don’t believe us, check out all our other posts on the savory goodness of wood-fired pizza and fresh toppings!
Today, we wanted to take a moment and share exactly what it is about wood-fired pizza ovens that make them so unique and the flavors of everything cooked inside of them so amazing.
Because a wood-fired pizza oven is designed to distribute heat evenly, the flavor profile of every Neapolitan pizza that you cook it in is elevated. In addition, the juices and elements of the ingredients brought to their full effect inside a wood-fired pizza oven because of the oven’s ability to reach high temperatures—up to 800 degrees Fahrenheit.
The Aroma of Wood
Every wood-fired pizza oven gets its name from its fuel source. An authentic wood-fired pizza oven like the one we use at Montilio’s On-the-Go is designed to infuse every inch of the golden-brown crust of the pizza with the smokey, woody, rustic flavors from the old country.
Wood-fired pizza ovens are built to cook pizza the way it was done when pizza was first invented in Naples in the 18th century. They used a wood-fired oven back then, so we use the same old-school technology today. Did you know that cooking a Neapolitan pizza in a wood-fired oven can be fully cooked in as little as 90 seconds?
There’s nothing complicated about preparing pizza using a wood-fired pizza oven, and that’s what makes them so unique. Simply pick out the perfect wood for the right flavor profile you’re looking for, light it up, add the ingredients, and let the oven do the rest.
If you’re looking for the best gooey goodness you can find on a crust, a wood-fired pizza from Montilio’s On-the-Go delivers.
