A wood fire oven is one of the most loved things in our back yard. I use it every chance i get. the trick to a good wood fire oven is to keep it hot. So always keep the door shut and never cook when the flames are all over the place. You want the coals burnt down with a low flame. This is what makes your oven hot. Not high flames going every where.


  • Simple Pizza dough recipe, Refer to Pizza dough.

  • 400gm Good quality Tinned tomatoes (Val Verde)

  • 2 clove of GArlic, chopped finely

  • 1/2 onion, Chopped finely

  • 1 Bunch of basil , Picked

  • 1 Ball of quality Buffallo Mozzarella torn

  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)


  • 1.

    To make the sauce. Simply heat 3 tblsp of evoo in a pan add the garlic and onions over a medium to low heat cook for at least 5-8 mins with no couler. next add half the chopped basil ( You can also add the stalk for more flavour, but cut it finely) fry for 1 minute and add the Tinned tomatoes. Cook over a hard boil for about five minutes let cool.

    So simply start your wood fire oven and let the coals burn down this will take about 1 1/2 hours. In this time you can roll your dough out to any shape you like. simply place your dough on the pizza slide, then a little of the tomaoto sauce on the pizza if you put to much it will go soggy. Tear some buffallo mozzarella over it and finish with about 5 leaves of Basil DRizzle with evoo.

    Push your pizza in and push to the center of the oven let let it cook for 1 min then turn it and cook for a futher minute. It should be thin and crisp This is the only way to ahve great pizza.
