How to buy the best pizza oven accessories
If you’ve gone to the effort and expense of buying a pizza oven for your garden, you’ll want the accessories that help you produce great pizzas and mean you can cook safely. These are the buys you should consider.
An essential for putting pizzas in and taking them out, a peel is the first accessory you should opt for. Choose from those with perforated bases and those without. The former will likely cost you more, but they do help flour fall away and steam evaporate for a perfect base.
Spinner or turning peel
If you like the idea of being able to turn the pizza while it’s in the oven to ensure even cooking, a spinner or turning peel will do the job.
If you didn’t get a cover when you bought your pizza oven, don’t forget to add one of these to your shopping list to keep your buy in great condition and ensure the outside stays clean.
Rake or hook
If yours is a wood-fuelled pizza oven, one of these tools will enable you to move the fuel as required once the oven is up to cooking temperature.
You’re working with high temperatures, so a pair of gloves will protect your hands and lower arms from the heat.
Set yourself up with a rocker to make clean precise cuts in the pizza before serving up.
