Cooking Foods in an Outdoor Oven  

Outdoor kitchens are all the rage these days. If you are lucky enough to have one, an outdoor oven is the perfect ingredient for an outdoor kitchen. Let’s take a few moments to talk about why your outdoor kitchen needs an outdoor oven.

Making Pizza in an Outdoor Oven

What could be better than a homemade pizza baked in an outdoor oven? I can practically smell it just thinking about it! Approaching pizza-making in this way gives you the ability to create amazing homemade pizzas, exactly to your liking. It is the authenticity of this type of pizza-making experience that is so desirable. In addition to this, it is fun for the entire family!

Outdoor Oven Types

There are two types of outdoor ovens, gas and wood-fired. It is a matter of personal taste which one is right for your needs. If you want authentic flavor, you should lean towards the wood-fired variety. On the other hand, you may prefer being able to control the temperature in your oven more effectively. In this case, you may do better cooking with gas.

Other Foods You Can Bake in Your Outdoor Oven

Why not pick up your favorite fresh veggies from your local farmer’s market? Next, coat the veggies in olive oil and top them with a bit of sea salt. Position the vegetables in the center of the oven and voila! A heathy and yummy side dish.

Try cooking salmon in your outdoor oven, on cedar wood planks. Begin by adding a splash of lemon juice, sea salt and rosemary to the salmon. Next, position the salmon on the cedar planks, and place them into the oven.

Why not cook a juicy steak in your outdoor oven? If you have a wood-fired outdoor oven, begin by finding a rack that will allow you to position the steaks directly over the flame. Just coat the steaks with a little oil and season to taste. What good is a steak without a baked potato? Wrap the potatoes in foil and place them near the flame.

Did someone say homemade bread? Ah, the possibilities are endless. What could be better than baking fresh homemade bread in your backyard? Baking bread in a wood-fired oven will give your bread a nice, crisp exterior with a moist and soft inside.


Having an outdoor oven is a luxury that is worth having. Whether you go with wood-fired or gas, an outdoor oven is your key to making fresh, homemade delicacies that you and your friends and family are sure to enjoy.
