Dome Oven

A dome oven, also known as a pizza oven or a wood-fired oven, is a type of oven traditionally used for cooking pizzas, bread, and other dishes. It features a dome-shaped chamber, usually made of refractory materials like refractory castable or fire bricks, which efficiently retains and radiates heat. Dome ovens are typically heated by burning wood or other solid fuels, although some modern versions can also use gas or electricity. The dome shape helps distribute heat evenly, allowing for quick and consistent cooking. The high temperatures achieved in a dome oven, often exceeding 700°C (1292°F), create a unique cooking environment that results in crispy crusts, fast cooking times, and imparting a distinct smoky flavor to the food. Dome ovens are popular for outdoor cooking and are favored by home cooks and professional chefs alike.
