Dear readers of my blog,
Are you ready for a gastronomic journey into the world of wood-fired pizza? Today I want to share with you the secret of its goodness, a secret that hides behind the magic of dancing flames and the tradition handed down from generation to generation. Wood-fired oven pizza is one of the greatest pleasures of Italian cuisine and in this post, I will take you to the heart of his creation.
Pizza is an icon of Italian cuisine, loved by millions of people around the world. Each pizza has the power to take us on a journey of flavours, aromas and sensations. But what makes wood-fired pizza so special? It's all in the cooking process!
In traditional pizzerias, the wood stove it is an essential component. These ovens are made with refractory bricks, which can withstand very high temperatures. This allows you to reach an ideal cooking temperature, between 400°C and 500°C, which gives the pizza that crunchy and tasty crust that we love so much.
The secret lies in the speed of cooking. In just 60-90 seconds, the pizza is cooked perfectly, with melted cheese, the fresh ingredients and the golden base. This quick cooking keeps the flavors of the ingredients intact and preserves the goodness and authenticity of Italian pizza.
In addition to cooking, another fundamental aspect is the preparation of the dough. The Neapolitan pizza, for example, it involves a simple flour-based dough, water, yeast and salt. The dough is left to rise for a long time, in order to make it light and digestible. This process gives the pizza a soft and fragrant texture, perfect for accommodating all the ingredients.
To fully appreciate the process of creating wood-fired pizza, I recommend you to visit a real traditional pizzeria. Here you can experience the unique and captivating atmosphere of a kitchen where time seems to pass more slowly, dedicated to the art of creating Italy's most loved dish.
