There's nothing like a freshly baked pizza coming out of the oven—the only thing better is if it's from your own wood-fired pizza oven.  If you’ve always appreciated the rich, smoky taste of wood-fired pies, Western Hills Builder Supply of Cincinnati, OH, will outfit your home with one.​​​​​​ In fact, there are a few benefits to owning a stone or brick pizza oven, some of which are explained below.

4 Benefits of Building a Wood-Fired Pizza Oven

1. One-of-a-Kind Flavor

Pizza cooked in a stone or brick wood-fired oven tastes differently because of the rich and complex flavors of the burning logs. Heat is distributed more evenly in the high temperatures of a wood-burning oven, as opposed to traditional gas or electric models. 

2. Shorter Cooking Times

There’s a reason why so many of the world’s best pizza restaurants use wood-fired ovens to cook their pies—because they can have them in and out in a flash. Such ovens can maintain temperatures of up to 700 degrees Fahrenheit, enabling you to cook a pizza in two to five minutes. In traditional ovens, it can take around 30 minutes to properly cook a delicious pizza.

3. Energy Savings

stoneHave you been searching for a way to cut back on your gas or electricity usage? A wood-fired oven is an excellent way to save on monthly energy costs and lower your carbon footprint. Plus, you don’t have to limit yourself to cooking pizza; countless other dishes are ideal for a wood-fired oven. 

4. Health Benefits 

When you cook vegetables and other nutritious items in a traditional oven, they lose many of the nutrients and antioxidants that make them healthy. However, due to the higher temperatures of wood-fired ovens, you can retain these nutrients and get the most out of all those veggie pizza toppings.

These are only a few of the benefits of investing in a brick or stone wood-fired pizza oven.
