First Pizza in Wood Fired Oven of the season
« on: March 18, 2012, 08:59:42 PM »
Itís been a lovely start to the spring season, the weather has been unseasonably warm, so it was about time I fired the wood fired oven up for a quick couple of pizzas for my family.

It's always difficult after you havenít fired an oven in anger for a while as it builds up moisture over the winter and everything takes a while longer to heat up.

Still it was a good start to the year with a couple of pepperoni pizzas, but the light fades so quickly, so caught the first pizza in near dark conditions.

Iím looking forward to a great season of eating outdoors, hope you are too.
Cheers
Marcus

Marcus - This is a great time of year and unseasonably warm here in New England as well. I fired my oven this weekend to get all the moisture out and baked some pies for family and friends. Great time.

I love the expectation of all the extra cooking I can do outdoors over the summer, I don't let the winter stop me, it's just better cooking and eating alfresco in the summer.
I found it took quite a while getting rid of the winter moisture in the oven, even though I've had a couple of fire ups over the winter, bring on summer and lots of cooking!
