Feb 17, 2022Posted by Forno Bravo

The purists love to use their wood fired ovens strictly with wood, but there are advantages to using gas especially for large pizza parties: 

  1. It brings the oven up to temperature quicker.
  2. Easier regulation of heat. 
  3. Quicker floor temperature recovery.

That said, here are 4 Forno Bravo residential ovens that can be fueled with gas:
