MARGHERITA PIZZA USING THE ROCCBOX PIZZA OVEN

I love cooking Margherita Pizza and from the poll, it came out solidly between the Pepperoni and the Margherita. So, we cooked a lovely Margherita Pizza using the Roccbox Pizza Oven.  The cook was easy with the Roccbox and it was also great fun to use as usual.  I did place my pizza into the oven at just under 400c on the dial but it cooked really well because the stone was so insulated inside.  However, the dial temperature should be around 420c for a perfect pizza cook! To ensure the buffalo mozzarella's wet juices don't seep into your base you…

TWO DIFFERENT PIZZA OVENS – TWO DIFFERENT HOME-MADE PIZZAS

HOME-MADE DESSERT PIZZA USING THE ROCCBOX PIZZA OVEN I love the summer especially when the weather comes good and the outside temperature hits at least 20c.  And with Wimbledon and those fresh strawberries at their best, it was time to make my favourite home-made pizza - the dessert pizza using the Roccbox Gas-fired Pizza Oven.  This can take many forms but I mostly make them with custard and some fresh fruit and sometimes a sprinkling of chocolate. This all started when I visited a Bed and Breakfast in Tuscany, Italy and the family prepared the guests a feast of pizza from the…

NEARLY MELTING MY IPHONE FROM THE HEAT OF THE OONI PRO WOOD-FIRED PIZZA OVEN

SUBSCRIBE TO MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL! I FORGOT HOW HOT THE PIZZA OVEN CAN GET! Hello!  This week I nearly lost my phone to the heat coming out of the Ooni Pro Pizza Oven!  It had been a while since I last used it and getting used to the immense heat that comes out from the front of the Ooni Pro takes some getting used to!  Once you open the door, take a step back because those flames just want to escape right through that front door opening! I couldn't wait to get back to using the Ooni Pro, the wood…

OONI KODA PIZZA OVEN REVIEW

OONI KODA GAS-FIRED PIZZA OVEN REVIEW Time for a quick review of the Ooni Koda Pizza Oven!  Over the last few weeks, I've been cooking pizza with this oven to find out how it cooks, how hot the stone gets, how it cooks during breezy days and I also even sizzled a salmon in it! I really think that the gas flame burner at the back is better than the Ooni 3 Pizza Oven's circular gas burner.  The Ooni Koda's gas burner sits on a straight grid at the back of the oven, whereas the Ooni 3's gas flame is…

MAKING AND BAKING CIABATTA BREAD IN A WOOD FIRED OVEN PLUS COOKING A RED PEPPER PIZZA!

MAKING AND BAKING CIABATTA BREAD I had a bit of a mini break last week because the weather was so fantastic - completely last minute idea but I'm back now and it's all go again! I used the same dough from the ciabatta roll cook.  So let me explain what happened during the first cook. I'd cooked this loaf just after I'd finished cooking the ciabatta rolls.  I added a few more pieces of lump wood just to keep the oven at a higher temperature for the cook.  The Ooni Pro isn't that insulated so the inside temperature lowers quickly…

Yellow Topped Pizza and Using a New Pizza Tool!

I fancied making a pizza with just one colour and for this week it was yellow.  I used some small yellow tomatoes with a sliced up yellow bell pepper.  The pepper was fried beforehand. So, this turned into a very fresh and tasty pizza that would be perfect for someone who loves yellow or just because it's a nice pizza to make.  The pizza was cooked using the Ooni 3 gas-fired pizza oven. The Dough Recipe for this pizza was: 500g Molino Grassi 00 Flour 9g dissolved table salt 3g yeast 6 hour room temp proof 5 day cold proof…
