Wondering what other food you can you cook in a pizza oven besides pizza?
Here is a list of some of my favourite foods which work well cooked in a pizza oven. I’ve picked out the best recipes from across the web to accompany them, so you have some clear instructions to follow.
It‘s no surprise to see some obvious classics in this list such as roast meat, bread and baked fruit. There are some more modern spins in here too, like the baked brie, and the dessert pizza – so enjoy getting some inspiration.
