That oven looks promising. I agree with Chau, that guy is making some very nice looking pies in his. Do you plan to do multiple pizzas or pizza parties? That may be it's one shortfall. When people have attempted building ovens like this with no thermal mass in the dome they have reported issues with multiple pies due to the lack of stored heat.
I asked the guy some questions:
I hope it's ok that I write to you about your Forni a legna oven. I'm in the market for a wood fired oven to make my pizzas in - I'll even see if I can make some neapolitan pies. I've been searching the market, and came across the Forni a legna Pizza party oven, which you have yourself. It seems like a pretty good oven, and since I want to move it around often(I live in an apartment), the weight is spot on.
I do have some questions however, that I hope you can answer, or at least give the best answer you can.
1. What happens if you don't put the door back on when baking pizzas? Does the oven lose heat too quick or doesn't it really matter?
2. How big are your pizzas when you put them in?
What weaknesses have you experienced using this oven?
Thanks a million
If you are looking for a small, ligth weight oven this kind of oven is a good choice.
I don't know if is convenient for you to by this oven considering the shipping cost out of Italy.
Here my answers:
1. The heat lose is not so much, but for a neapolitan dough (fast bake) I got best result putting the door on (not closed but leaving an inch to let the flame breath), then after 20-30 sec, rotate 2 times for even browning. Even more I do not use the flame separator they give.
2. Standard neapolitan size, about 28cm.
3. For sure it has weaknesses, but the trade off is positive, with a such small oven it's more than I expected.
Give a look around, maybe you'll find a similar oven seller in you area."
I will be doing smaller pizza parties, of maybe 10 people, so it shouldn't be that bad
the forno bravo primevera 60 and 70 are available on casters now. they look really nice .they also have a new lighter version of the 70 that may fit your needs.i have a 70 and really enjoy the pizza that i can bake in it.
Thanks, I'll look into it
