Wood-fired Artisan Pizza in a Small Footprint?
What if there is a way to produce flavorful hand-crafted, wood-fired artisan-style pizza in a small footprint, with less labor, time, and can be used in a mobile application? Well, you can. Drum Roll Please…
Introducing the PZ400 wood pellet-fired pizza oven from Cookshack.
Pellet Fired For That Great Smoky Flavor
The Cookshack PZ400 is an ingeniously designed pizza oven that uses small wood pellets to heat the oven and produce flavorful smoke to tease your palette. Pellets are loaded into a reservoir and are automatically added to the firebox as needed to produce the desired temperature. For those who love the savory aroma of hickory, it is the most common hardwood used and produces that sweet, smoky flavor that is traditional in Southern-style cooking. Other wood species such as fruitwoods (Apple & Cherry), Mesquite and Oak can be used or mixed to develop the desired flavor profile. Ideal pellets are those that have no binders, artificial fillers, or additives so that your foods are getting a clean, safe, smoke that will keep customers coming back for more.
Small Footprint, BIG Results
At just under 38″ wide and 27″ deep, the Cookshack PZ400 doesn’t take up lots of space as other wood-fired ovens require. Saving space in your cook line cuts down on costly exhaust vent hoods. Venting the oven is as easy as by placing the flue under an existing exhaust hood, or could be vented directly outside. Refer to your local NFPA96 fire codes for reference.
In the oven’s cavity, you will find a thick pizza stone that will hold several small personal pizzas, or a 16″ pizza. The oven is very efficient due to the double-wall stainless steel construction and 2″ Spin-Glas® insulation in the walls. The important thing here is the heat stays in the oven and not in the kitchen which makes this a fabulous oven for smaller kitchen formats.
Easy To Use
The easy-to-use, versatile control panel adjusts the temperature from 170°F – 900°F, giving you a wide range of temperatures allowing you to provide authentic smoke to calzones, quesadillas, Stromboli, desserts and more! Speaking of easy, there is no need to turn pizzas to get that perfect even cook as you would in a traditional wood-fired oven. Also, tending to the fire is not necessary. The PZ400’s advanced controls do all the dirty work for you!
