22 Jan 15 Kalamazoo artisan fire pizza oven


Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet launched a new version of its popular countertop Artisan Fire Pizza Oven, offering the performance of the original oven in a built-in design.

After years of popular demand, Kalamazoo created the built-in version for people who want an oven set into a wall or masonry structure.

Offering the same performance as its popular countertop Artisan Fire Pizza Oven, the built-in version is ready to cook after just 20 minutes of warm up. A Neapolitan-style pizza bakes in less than three minutes after the oven reaches its highest temperature of 800+ degrees Fahrenheit. The oven also has the versatility to roast meats, fish and vegetables.

People want to cook amazing pizzas at home. They crave the kind of rustic pizza experience they get from a pizzeria – the kind of experience that used to require a massive brick oven, said Russ Faulk, vice president of design for Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet. Our Artisan Fire Pizza Ovens deliver the extreme heat needed for making that perfect pizza, but without the extra time and skill a wood fire demands.

Like the traditional wood-fired pizza ovens, the built-in Artisan Fire Pizza Oven is stone-lined. Pizzas cook directly on a hollow-core baking deck. Its honeycombed interior is designed to rapidly change temperature. A ceiling stone radiates heat down to quickly brown toppings.

Two independently-adjustable burners deliver 250 degrees F to more than 800 degrees F of heat that can be tailored for different pizza styles, breads and meat or fish dishes.

Priced at ,295, the oven uses natural gas or liquid propane, and is made by hand in Kalamazoo, Michigan of stainless steel. It will withstand the rigors of a Midwestern winter, or the saltwater breezes of a coastal environment.

08 Oct 11 Premio2G Series pizza ovens by Forno Bravo


You can cook like a professional with the new wood fired Premio2G Series pizza oven manufactured by Forno Bravo. Available in 3 sizes – from a 40″x48″ cooking floor to a commercial grade 48″x56″ cooking surface, the premium pizza oven is intended for high-end consumer who knows exactly what is needed in the yard or garden. The Premio2G ovens feature a thick, high-density 3″ cast refractory dome, extra thick insulation and an insulated steel door, allowing for high throughput pizza baking and retained heat baking and roasting.

The Premio2G oven dome and insulation are the same thickness and density as many commercial pizza ovens, designed for constant year-around use. These Forno Bravo pizza ovens weigh more than twice as much as many other residential pizza ovens with the same size cooking floor, without compromising heat up times.


The Premio2G features ultra heavy oven dome, cast using high-density, high-alumina, vibrated refractory. The dome pieces use an interlocking design for a tight fit, better heat retention and better durability. The ovens heat up in about an hour and hold their cooking temperature longer than any other residential oven.

The pizza oven cooking floor is made from commercial type, 18″x18″x2″ compressed and kiln-fired firebrick tiles. The cooking floor is fully enclosed by the oven, maintains high heat for virtually limitless pizza baking, and is far more durable than cast and air-dried oven floors. Each Premio2G oven is delivered with extra-thick insulation for better heat retention, and includes 4″ x1″ of high-tech ceramic blanket dome insulation and 3″ of ceramic board floor insulation, enabling the ovens to easily retain 400°F up to 24 hours after the fire goes out.

The pizza ovens incorporate a monblock refractory vent and chimney adapter and oven opening for easy installation and durability. The ovens include a 24″ long stainless steel chimney and rain cap, and an insulated steel oven door with a thermometer. The oven door features 1″ of ceramic insulation encased in a steel enclosure for unrivalled heat retention. Forno Bravo also offers an optional decorative brick arch for the Premio2G series, giving the oven a traditional Italian finish. Here are the U.S. prices.

08 Sep 11 Making Pizza – Part 4 – Preparing the Dough

In a home environment, we do not have 700 degree pizza ovens. We have regular home ovens. So we need to prepare the dough accordingly so that will be crispy on the outside, and soft in the inside. The dough recipe is formulated to get the best out of a home environment. When it comes to the dough the most important thing to remember is: -Always pre-bake the dough until you see golden spotting on the top. About 10 min. You can let it golden a bit more if you choose. -Do not flour the dough. Use oil to grease the pan and roll out the dough. And that’s it! The texture of your dough may look different than mine. That’s ok. Yours may be more elasitcy. Just keep rolling it out until it cooperates. If you use too much oil it might retract back too much after you roll it out. I suggest wiping off the excess oil with a paper towel or such.
