If you're equipping your site with al-fresco cooking, you will no doubt be considering pizza ovens for glamping sites. Such a facility provides a unique experience for your guests. It is also sure to delight them with delicious food as long as you select your equipment carefully.
Pizza ovens for glamping brings the possibility for additional revenue streams: It is easy to make and sell balls of pizza dough to your guests using our authentic recipe, for example. The same goes for tomato sauce varieties, cheeses and any other toppings. Pizza dough freezes well, so you can make a large batch and keep it fresh for weeks if it helps.
Some glamping sites have proudly built their own versions of pizza oven using bricks and concrete. Containing a wood fire around the food is the essential objective. Whilst there is some charm and character associated with building your own oven this way, it often comes at a price. So please remember these two essential considerations:
A home-built oven is unlikely to sustain the wear and tear of regular use at a busy glamping site.
The science of internal proportions and heat-resistant materials is one which has been studied and perfected by manufacturers such as us for many years: It is generally advised not to try re-inventing the wheel, unless you wish to go into oven production yourselves.
Here are our top three Blistering Pizza Ovens for Glamping:
1. The Sheffield 120/140
Featuring our unique steelfibre-strengthened concrete base, the Sheffield 120 is a solid, sturdy and cavernous solution for mid-to-high-volume al-fresco cooking. Producing six 10" pizzas every two minutes - or even eight, if you take the 140 upgrade - it is perfectly formed to provide all-round natural heat for a wide range of al-fresco delicacies.
The Sheffield 120 is designed to be immovable and is highly durable to withstand commercial levels of use. Once lit it will be ready for use within 40 minutes, and its high turnover rate means it can be shared between multiple families to feed many mouths with delicious natural food. It is the best choice if you want an oven built into its own surround. Click below for example images of how our customers use it.
The unique design of this oven comes from a 1945 remodel by Horácio. He was a Portuguese chef who transformed his country's traditional woodfired oven into something more efficient and portable. The Wizard Oven comes on wheels so it can be moved around easily. It can therefore be brought under cover for the winter if required. Built using terracotta clay inside a metal shell, it is lighter in weight than other options yet loses no durability or cooking quality.
The Wizard's design enables it to provide a high-turnover rate of pizza (8 10-inchers every two minutes for the 140 model). Plus, the on-board temperature gauge gives your guests added ability to time their pizzas to perfection. More Info
