This oven has a large grate that holds enough fuel for me to not worry about keeping the flame going.

This is a very quick and easy dish to prepare and cook in this pizza oven.  The first thing to do is build up your fire so that the oven reaches 500c.

Next, add your chicken pieces and chosen vegetables onto a metal skewer.

I added peri-peri seasoning to some of the chicken with slices of red onions.

I also added some Italian seasoning to some of the chicken kebabs with lemon and garlic.   I would advise not using a water-soaked bamboo skewer in this oven!

Once the oven reaches 500c, place your cast-iron pan into the oven and wait a few minutes for it to heat up.

Using heat-proof gloves, remove the cast-iron pan from the oven and add the kebabs and return back into the oven and shut the glass door.  Halfway through turn the kebabs over.

This should take about 6 minutes in total but check with a meat thermometer to ensure that it is fully cooked.


Cast Iron Pans are a must have item for cooking dishes in these super high heat pizza ovens.

I also cooked some Corn on the Cob and they turned out to be the nicest I’ve ever cooked.

They tasted so wood flamed – totally delicious.   In fact, everything in the oven that we cooked had picked up the delicious flavours from the wood flame.

This is such a great way to cook other dishes in a pizza oven and the large cooking area will give you more flexibility to use both big and small pans.

I’ve created a Pizza for Beginners – Learning to Cook Pizza and How to Use Pizza Ovens YouTube playlist that gives some great tips to help you with your learning to cook pizza journey!
