The smells of a wood-fired pizza oven are definitely enticing! Because most think it’s a more authentic method to bake your Neapolitan pizza, and it is, yet sometimes a propane tank and a turn of a button is the easiest path to pizza prowess. Ooni, the newest, most brilliant company on the pizza scene since Raffaele Esposito himself, has solved the fuel quandary when baking that perfect pie with their Karu Wood & Charcoal Fired Portable Pizza Oven. Now, with the Ooni Karu, toss in some coal, which reaches the hottest temps (per the pizza pros on the web). Or try some wood, which can reach 800℉ on a good day. Feeling like not going through much effort for that tailgate, plug in the propane attachment (sold separately) and fire up some shrimp scampi to really impress em’ while outdoors in a parking lot!
Which Fuel Tastes Best?
All three styles of firing up your Ooni Karu will result in delicious food. Not just pizza, but seafood to desserts can be baked under that fiery hood. The flavours obtained by each fuel only adds to the depth and character of the meal. We tried both cooking with oak wood, coals, and propane. Everything was incredible! It depends on your style of pie, and what you have on hand to figure out which fuel will be best for your group to enjoy. Have fun trying all three methods, with different foods, and experience the joy of the flame with the Ooni Karu!
