Black Oven

A black baking oven, often referred to as a black oven or wood-fired oven, is a traditional type of outdoor oven used for baking bread, pizzas, and other foods. Characterized by its brick or stone construction, it features a chamber where wood is burned to create a fire. The oven’s walls absorb and store heat, which is then radiated onto the food placed inside. These ovens are known for their ability to achieve high temperatures, resulting in quick and even baking, crisp crusts, and enhanced flavor profiles. Popular in artisanal and traditional baking, black ovens are valued for their connection to time-honored culinary practices and their capacity to produce exceptional baked goods with a touch of rustic authenticity.
