Wood Fired Oven

Here is some information on how to use our wood fired oven and to make Pizza.

Lighting the fire, we have been doing it 4 hours before.

Making the Pizza Dough, we have been starting 9 hours before as 1 hour first rise and 8 hours the second rise, we make the equivalent of 2 batches in the Video but only 1/2 at a time as it fits our mixer with a dough hook better. So 4 half batches which gives us 24 Pizzas.

Making the Sauce, any time before you need it. We used just 1 can and had more than half left over or we use our own home made sauce from the community garden.
