You may have read on my blog awhile back that I had to buy a different oven for baking my bread. I was so lucky to find something suitable right here at home. I have this huge Blodgett commercial pizza oven on my patio! This is a picture the day it arrived. Delivered but not yet connected to the natural gas.
It makes wonderful bread. Everything is baked on a stone. The oven has even heat and fits 10 loaves of bread at a time. Without it I would not be able to supply what I need for the market.
Today I invited a neighbour over to make pizzas. I have not yet cranked up the heat to 625F and wanted to see what it could do.
It was a beautiful hot summer day. A perfect day for al fresco dining and a perfect day not to be baking in an indoor oven.
The results were stellar. Homemade pizza crust baked evenly crisp on the bottom. Hannah made a broccoli, chicken, ricotta, mozzarella with basil pizza. Mine was feta, fresh tomato, roasted garlic, roasted red peppers and parmesan. No tomato sauce on either. We brushed the crust with olive oil before baking.
It was so good and we wolfed it down too quickly. One piece of each with a green salad made a perfect summers midweek meal.
The pizza place on the corner has an oven just like this. Next to a woodburning oven it is the best way to make pizza. They also use it to make bread for their garlic toast. Thousans of dollars more but wouldn't it be something to have multi level ovens like Monika had at Okanagan Grocers,ReplyDelete
I would love an oven like Monika's. It is a real bread oven. Perhaps one day.Delete
I am terribly jealous of that oven... what an amazing thing. My guilty desire is a wood burning pizza oven... one day!!ReplyDelete
I have been coveting a wood burning pizza oven for a very long time. We have precious little wood in my part of the country. I still may build one someday.Delete
Oh lucky duck..will you keep it indoors? Or can it live outside in our canadian winters?ReplyDelete
This baby took 4 men to move it! It will be staying out. I keep it covered even in the summer. Appliance man said it is just like a barbecue. No electronics, just a pilot light.Delete
It's just great.What a find:-)ReplyDelete
