While gas ovens like the Blackstone are a very convenient choice for making a backyard Pizza, tradition dictates that the best Pizza can only be made with a brick oven. The main function of a brick oven is to trap the heat generated by burning wood. Traditional ovens are usually built with fire resistant materials like fire brick or clay. Other materials such as cement or stone are also a popular choice when building these ovens.
The brick oven has been used for centuries by mankind. In Italy, the so-called black ovens made out of bricks were of common use during the Roman Republic. They were also referred to as black ovens because the smoke from the wood would collect on the roof of the oven. Brick ovens were widely used throughout the medieval period in Europe. During Medieval Times, one brick oven would usually serve an entire community of people. Today, thanks to the power of the internet, you can order one of these ovens from the comfort of your home and you will be cooking the most delicious backyard pizza in no time.
