Proper Dome Height for The Best Brick Oven Pizza


The Forno Bravo oven’s low 16.5″ internal oven dome height is in proper proportion to the cooking floor diameter and evenly bounces heat onto the cooking floor for consistent, high-temperature pizza baking at 800ºF+. The heat of the fire continuously re-charges the cooking floor.

High Dome Cannot Bake Italian Pizza Napoletana

The dome height is too high in proportion to the oven floor diameter. Heat must travel too far from the fire to the dome, and then to the cooking floor, resulting in inconsistent, low-temperature pizza baking. Further, the fire is not able to adequately maintain a hot cooking floor.
