I purchased four wizard wood fired ovens over fifteen years ago. As the executive head chef of the leading al fresco catering company in the UK, I'm always looking for new and exciting ideas to bring to the party, and this one didn't disappoint!
Fifteen years later, and I’m still cooking from the same Wizard ovens. They have been on and off lorries and up and down the country to events far and wide. They are still in great condition and still turning out woodfired feasts and amazing pizzas.
The best thing about this oven is its internal size. The oven’s been designed to take a huge shelf ( trivet ) giving you twice as much cooking space as the average pizza oven: You get a hot spot on the floor of the oven and a super hot spot closer to the flames on the trivet.
If you’re looking at cooking more than just pizzas from a woodfired oven this is a top contender for the job. It’s equally great for banging out pizzas all day too.
The Wizard has proved the test of time. It is portable, relatively lightweight and great value for money.
I’m thinking of getting one for my garden and cladding it in to blend in with the patio.
Now there’s a good idea...
