Which Wood is Right For My Pizza Oven?
Cooking in a pizza oven is an experience like no other. We love the thrill of seeing the temperature hit 500ºc and the smell of a sizzling, freshly cooked pizza as it comes out of the oven
But your wood-fired oven is only as good as the wood you put in it, so you need to make sure you've got the right fuel for your appliance! Which wood is best for your pizza oven?
With so many different models out there, it can be hard to know what you need to buy. The first question to answer is whether your pizza oven need pizza logs, thicker logs, kindling, pellets or even a mix of two or three? We've done the hard word and created fuel kits for every type of wood-fired pizza oven. Find your brand and model in the table below and we'll tell you which is right for you.
The next question is which species of wood is best for your pizza oven? Some pizzaiolos have personal preferences, with beech being the most popular. We've tested most species of hardwood and found it doesn't make much difference! Oak, ash, beech and birch all work brilliantly as long as they're dry enough. If the wood is dried to less than 20% moisture content and cut to the right size and thickness for your oven, you can easily start a fire that gets your oven hot enough to cook pizzas!
