How to Cook the Perfect Pizza Using a Charcoal Oven

If you're a pizza lover, you know that there's nothing quite like the taste of a pizza that's been cooked in a wood-fired oven. However, if you don't have access to a wood-fired oven, a charcoal oven is the next best thing. In this blog post, we'll show you how to use a charcoal oven to cook the perfect pizza.

Firstly, it's important to choose the right charcoal oven. Nuovo Luxury offers a fantastic collection of charcoal ovens that are perfect for baking pizzas. Their ovens are made of high-quality materials and are designed to distribute heat evenly, resulting in a perfectly cooked pizza every time.

Once you have your charcoal oven, the next step is to prepare your dough. You can either make your own dough or buy pre-made dough from your local supermarket. If you're making your own dough, make sure to let it rise for at least an hour before cooking.

Next, preheat your charcoal oven. The temperature should be around 400-450°F (200-230°C). You can use a thermometer to ensure that the temperature is accurate.

Once your oven is preheated, it's time to assemble your pizza. Spread a thin layer of tomato sauce on the dough, leaving a small border around the edges. Add your toppings of choice, such as mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, and vegetables.

Carefully slide your pizza onto the preheated pizza stone or baking tray in the charcoal oven. Close the oven door and cook for around 10-12 minutes, or until the crust is crispy and the cheese is melted and bubbling.

When your pizza is ready, carefully remove it from the oven using a pizza peel. Let it cool for a minute or two before slicing and serving.

Using a charcoal oven to cook pizza may take a bit of practice, but once you get the hang of it, you'll be able to create delicious, restaurant-quality pizzas at home. With the right charcoal oven, high-quality ingredients, and a bit of patience, you can cook the perfect pizza every time.
