How Hot is a Wood Fired Oven?
A Wood Fired Oven obviously operates a bit differently than conventional ovens.
For example, we have to start the fire for the oven 3-4 hours before service starts. We do this to ensure the fire has time to develop coals. Our goal is to have the oven over 1,000 degrees. We want the oven to be as hot as possible to build up heat, this helps keep it warm during service, even when we’re cooking a ton of pizzas.
Once we think the oven is hot enough, we start to try to bring it down to its ideal temperature, which is somewhere between 675 - 750 degrees. It's a ton more work than an ordinary oven, but we think the final product speaks for itself.
