A Delicious Pizza Needs To Cooked To Perfection
Everybody loves pizza, even those of us who are quite fussy and difficult to please. So, it is important to understand that to obtain an impeccable result, a high-quality professional oven is called for.
Since ancient times, the wood-fired oven has been the main tool for baking bread and other bread-based products, such as pizza and foccccia. This type of oven is made of refractory material and ensures an even distribution of the heat, reaching very high temperatures.
Wood-fired oven for a fragrant Neapolitan pizza
Every top-quality wood-fired oven is designed so that the rounded shaped of the cooking chamber helps to correctly distribute the hot air currents. The result is fast, even cooking.
Generally speaking, Neapolitan pizza is cooked at a high temperature in about 60 seconds. Other types of pizza, on the other hand, are cooked in a couple of minutes.
Ambrogi professional wood-fired ovens can reach very high temperatures. When the pizza dough comes into contact with these high temperatures, a crisp crust is produced on the edges and the base.
The wood used, which gives its own particular aroma to the pizza, also plays an important part. This is because the fragrant notes released by different types of wood can be incorporated in the cooking.

Anyone who chooses an Ambrogi wood-fired oven can prepare a Neapolitan pizza that is fragrant on the outside and soft inside.

Another strong point in favour of Ambrogi pizza ovens is their fast and minimal maintenance requirements. The only thing you need to do is to clean the cooking surface on a regular basis to eliminate any ash or residue. If necessary, the chimney can be checked by a specialist company.
