The main difference between static and ventilated oven lies in the heat distribution mode. The convection oven works for heat radiation, the heat is diffused through a resistor or other source of heat which is usually disposed in the upper or lower part of the oven. When cooking food in this cooking mode is slower, gently and homogeneously. By using the static oven so the food will be cooked well and dry both inside that outside it.

Bake in a static oven is simple, but we must remember that it is possible to cook one meal at a time.

Now to the convection oven: It works by convention, the fan creates a flow of hot air that creates a crispy crust on the food being cooked, while the interior of the food remains soft and moist. Unlike static oven, Here we can cook more dishes simultaneously.

Then, which we will choose the oven for cooking pizza? I would say that there is no single answer, but it will depend on the type of pizza that we want to prepare.
