Vent Landing

The vent landing in a wood pizza oven refers to the area directly in front of the oven entrance where pizzas are placed for cooking. It is the space where the pizza peel is used to slide the pizza onto the cooking surface. The vent landing is typically made of a heat-resistant material, such as refractory bricks or tiles, to withstand the high temperatures and direct contact with the fire. It is an important part of the oven setup, providing a stable and level surface for safely transferring the pizza into the oven. The size and design of the vent landing can vary depending on the specific oven construction and personal preference, but its primary purpose is to facilitate the smooth and efficient loading of pizzas into the wood pizza oven.
