Gas or Wood Fired?

Your first decision is whether to select a gas-fired or wood-fired Pizza Oven. Forno Bravo carries both gas-fired and wood-fired ovens, so that you can find the right oven for your restaurant. The following questions should help you choose.

Wood Fired

Will your restaurant be focusing on the highest possible quality of pizza? Do you want your brick oven to be authentic? Are your considering becoming Vera Pizza Napoletana certified?

Nothing beats a true wood-fired brick oven for authenticity and for great cooking. The best pizza in the world is made in a wood-fired oven, and if you want to be VPN you have to use a wood-fired oven.

Is a true Wood Fired brick oven one of the themes of your restaurant? Will you oven be visible from the restaurant?

Customer demand for true wood-fired pizza is growing, and a true wood-fired brick oven adds character and charm to a restaurant.

Forno Bravo offers both Modular and Assembled Wood Fired Ovens. Read our Modular vs. Assembled page to see which works best for your restaurant.

Gas Fired

Are you motivated more by efficiency than authenticity? Are you concerned about the consistency of the food you will be preparing?

Gas-fired refractory ovens give you much of the same flavor and panache as a wood-fired oven, with less effort and less hassle.

Are you concerned your customers will not understand the dark brown pizzas that come from a wood-fired oven, or will not see the point of a wood-fired oven?

It is easier to make a consistently good product with a gas-fired oven, and oven management puts much less pressure on the experience and skill of your cooking staff.

Our gas-fired ovens are made with the same designs and care as our wood-fired ovens, with a little more modern convenience.

Are you concerns about locating and managing a wood supply, or building codes that do not allow wood. Are you looking for an oven that is easier to manage?

Gas-fired ovens are modern and easy to manage and are not subject to any wood-burning codes.
