Wood-fired pizza.

Julie and Ryan came over this weekend with their new toy – a wood (pellet) fired pizza oven! It’s made by ooni. They set it up out back and we made pizzas until we couldn’t eat another bite. It worked really well, and the pizzas were delicious.

I made my favorite, a knock-off of Brick Oven’s Tuscan Truffle pizza. It has a mushroom and truffle oil pesto, with a little bit of prosciutto. It is topped with arugula and shredded asiago cheese after it comes out of the oven. Stupendo!

To make the mushroom pesto, blend the following in a food processor:

  • 8 oz brown mushrooms, coarsely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 c extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp white truffle oil
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • 2 oz shredded parmesan cheese

    1. Hi lynn. It’s my niece’s oven, not ours. But my observations: works fantastic. They got the 12″ wood pellet version. they make a 16″ version, and also propane versions. It’s portable, which is nice for camping or whatever. If we got one, I might go for a 16″ version, since that’s the size dough we usually throw. But the 12″ worked great. I think we’d stick w/ the wood pellet version, as you get a bit of the wood fire flavor when it cooks. A nice little oven. check out ooni.com
