How about describing your first use of a wood fired oven? Would be interested to know what you found to be the difference in cook time, taste, texture, preparation, etc. Tell us something about the oven... maybe a picture of the oven would be nice.

Thanks

well, in the beginning it was hard to find out how to manage the fire.... but we got along whit the fire after...

i don't have pictures of the oven right now, but i will upload....

the pizzas cooked in 2 minutes, the crust was crispy and very nice in the middle..... the buffalo mozzarella was melted to perfection......

i used 00 flour whit 10%, Italian tomatos and buffalo mozzarella....

oh..

the taste was very nice, very different (than pizza made at home in a pizza stone)... but here in Sao Paulo (Brazil) we have allot of pizzerias (all Naples style) whit wood fire ovens.... so the taste that i was looking for, was accomplished !!!

Thanks for the additional info. Is it an oven built from plans or a prefabricated oven?

I am in the research phase at this point and too many choices for ovens and the lack of local people who could build or install it for me is a challenge.

Andre,

My cousins name is Andre, so when I saw this post it looked familiar. But as I was going through my emails looking for something I saw the name again. Your email was one that stood out and I remembered it. So let me tell you..... CONGRATULATIONS on your new oven. It's exciting the first time you pull a pie out of an oven at high temperatures (anything over 800F) I know the feeling. Thanks for sharing your experience. We look forward to seeing more pictures. I love to travel..... some day I hope to make it to Brazil. When I do I know where I can get a slice of good pizza!!

take care,
Willard

mmmmm, pasteis! 

I lived in Brazil for several years, and those fried pastries filled with mozz (among other things) were a great pizza substitute.  Are they called pizza frita in SP?  In Belo Horizonte, they are called pasteis. 

BTW, at my urging, my brother-in-law bought a forno a lenha (wood burning oven) last year.  In Brazil, they are relatively inexpensive, about US$200-300 last time I checked.  The same recipe that produced decent pizza in my home oven yielded the most exquisite pizza in the wood burning oven.

pizza frita are not pasteis.... (pasteis are made of another kind of dough).... and they (pizza frita) are not sold out of sao paulo (where the big italian community is).... unfortunately Belo Horizonte is not a great pizza rout... this is very common in Naples...

this pizza frita is a regular pizza dough, but they are fried.... very GOOD !!!
