We wrote very recently – here - about the current craze for fire pits in the UK as an elegant and practical alternative to the patio heater. Hot on the heels ( sorry!) of this is another idea for the best equipped garden, namely a wood burning pizza oven. There are several different companies offering their wares online but if you are looking for something you can really rely on, you might want to choose an oven from Jamie Oliver – jamieoliverovens.com has all you need to get up and running.
The great thing about these ovens is that you are not just limited to making pizza, you could if you wished bake fish, meat vegetables or even bread in them. We even heard of one friends who makes a mean paella in his oven every weekend. There is something of a learning curve involved, because you can’t just preset the temperature when you’re burning seasoned wood, but you should soon get the hang of things. The other good thing about them is that they are portable, so if you move house your wood-fired oven can come too!
