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've created a Pizza for Beginners YouTube playlist that gives some great tips to help your learning to cook pizza journey! Enjoy your Pizza Cooking!
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 Pizza Oven's gas burner sits on a straight grid at the back of the oven, whereas the Ooni 3 Pizza Oven's gas flame is more directed down the centre of the oven. The Ooni Koda Pizza Oven's gas burner provides a better cook as it also cooks the back and sides of the pizza more evenly.
The difference between a gas flame cook and a wood-flame cook, I feel, is quite significant. However, the gas flame from the Ooni Koda Pizza Oven is closer to the gentler, wispier flame of a wood-fire. This oven is fast becoming my go-to oven mainly because of the weather - I can set it up and down quickly in-between rain showers and that's something that's not easy to do with the Ooni Pro Pizza Oven.
PIZZA TOOL - THE MINI-ROLLER. STRETCHING PIZZA FOR BEGINNERS
I wanted to use this cool pizza tool to try and make my pizza thinner this week so gave it a try. I made a cheese pizza from dough that I'd proofed in the fridge for 24 hours and then room-proofed for another 24 hours.
This is an experiment and a reverse of the process that I normally make and so far, I feel that the dough comes out better with this current process and so I'm going to keep using it!
This pizza tool is very much worth getting if you are having trouble making and stretching your pizza dough to a thin base. I really like using it and will use it a lot more however I am still learning to stretch but during the times when I can't get it thin enough, I'm definitely going to reach for this tool!
