2020 is the year of the homemade pizza! After watching so many 'Cooking with fire' shows on Netflix, David was excited to set up our side porch with a pizza oven. We had to wait two months for our Ooni Pizza Oven to arrive due to overwhelming popularity, but it was SO WORTH THE WAIT. This little tabletop oven is our favorite way to cook dinner these days. David has been perfecting his pizza toss, and the boys and I are experimenting with ingredients. I'll list a few things our family has found helpful in addition to the pizza oven we purchased.
Since the pizza oven's optimal cooking temp is 932degrees, you'll want something similar to the item I linked to keeping your hands far away from the opening. This pizza peellooks like something an Italian chef would use and has been known to make David say 'Mama Mia!' while using it. :
