Neapolitan Pizza in a Mattone Barile Grande

Many of you know I enjoy figuring out the various questions that come up when we’re building our ovens. But, it’s not “all work and no play.” As Crash Davis said, “This game is supposed to be fun.”

So here’s a short video I shot the other evening while baking my pies. For anyone who doubts it, you really can put a raw pizza on the hearth and, 3 to 4 minutes later, pull out a perfectly baked Neapolitan pie.

If you’re still working on it, don’t lose heart! This is a real, happening thing!


Excellent Video Matt!

I just gained 2lbs watching that!

Building the oven is almost as much fun as building / baking the pizza…

1000’s of wood-fired pizzas under my belt (and a little hanging over) - and each pizza is just as much fun as the first one.

Thanks again for all of your guidance!
