On those hot summer days, or cold chilly nights, what’s better than a homemade pizza? Instead of ordering takeout, you can make a restaurant-style pizza in your backyard with a charcoal pizza oven. 

With Goldline’s Pizza Oven, you can easily convert your backyard into an alfresco dining space. In this article, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about cooking with a charcoal pizza oven. 

Using Wood and Charcoal

When you use only charcoal, your pizza might not get as hot as you need. The oven temperature should be around 250 to 260°C to cook a pizza properly. Using wood in addition to charcoal can help you get your perfect crispy pizza. Wood will also give a smokey, irresistible taste to the pizza. 

When adding wood to your charcoal oven, you’ll want to be sure to use blocks of wood instead of chips or pellets. 

Using a Pizza Stone 

A pizza stone allows you to cook in the grill itself. It’s essential for gourmet-quality pizza since the stone allows for a higher, more consistent temperature.

Goldline’s pizza oven conveniently comes with a pizza stone, as well as a tray. That way, you don’t have to purchase an additional pizza stone which can be expensive. 

How much charcoal do you use?

Since you want the charcoal pizza oven to get very hot, you’ll want to use a generous amount of charcoal. It’s recommended that you fill the provided drawer half to three-quarters full to reach the optimum temperature. 

Cooking is all about experimenting, so you can add different amounts of charcoal until you find the right amount. 

Finding the Right Temperature

A common issue people have with charcoal pizza ovens is that the crust cooks faster than the top of the pizza. This is because there’s usually a large amount of air at the top of the oven. 

To fix this problem, try covering the insert with aluminium foil. This will decrease the amount of air circulating at the top, and help the pizza cook faster.
