How To Light And Use Your Pellet Pizza Oven
1. Add Pellets
To start with, you need to fill up the grate that slides out with a full scoop of pellets. Make sure to fill it up to the indicated level on your pellet chamber.
2. Add Firelighters
All you need is one firelighter in your pellet tray. We recommend our Ecoblaze natural firelighters, which burn for 8 minutes to ensure the flames spread and the pellets catch too. This is also a much safer method than using a blowtorch or lighting fluid. Light the firelighter and slide the grate back in to get on with prepping your food.
3. Maintaining The Heat
Your pizza oven should take about 15 minutes to heat up. Before refuelling, give the pellets time to fully light, then add a small amount at a time (a full scoop is too much) to gradually build the heat levels. The hopper lid should usually be closed while you cook, however you can further enhance the heat created by keeping the hopper lid ajar to maximise airflow through your oven.
4. Heating Up The Pizza Stone
Keep your oven door shut to allow your pizza stone to heat up. This should only take 5 to 10 minutes, which also gives you the perfect amount of prep time to add the dough to the pizza peel, adorn your pizza with its toppings & maybe add a little drizzle of oil.
5. Adding Your Pizza
Slide your pizza in the pizza oven quickly, ensuring you keep as much heat in the oven as possible. Your oven should be at such a high temperature that the radiating heat will be circulating around the pizza oven walls, celling & most importantly the pizza stone.
6. How Long Will Your Pizza Take?
A traditional thin pizza base will require roughly 60 seconds in the oven. If you like it on the crispier side, spin it and cook for an additional 25 seconds.
Top Wood Pellet Pizza Tips
How To Check The Pellets Are Burning Properly
Once the wood pellets have caught fire, the pellets in the chamber will glow bright red. If your pellets aren’t burning, see below for more advice.
How To Store The Pellets
Keep the bag somewhere dry and reseal it with tape or clips once it’s opened. The pellets expand when exposed to moisture and will not be effective as a heating source. Tiny holes in the bag means that moisture can still seep through the packaging, so we recommend you store your pellets inside or under a waterproof cover.
When To Start Adding More Pellets
Allow the pellets to fully light before adding more fuel to the chamber. Make sure to only add a little at a time to avoid overloading your appliance, which might extinguish the flames.
What To Do If The Pellets Won’t Ignite
Pellets won’t ignite properly if they are damp or if there isn’t enough airflow coming through the oven. Adjusting the position of the oven with the wind will draw air through the vent and help the flame to spread across the pellets. Keeping the hopper lid ajar will also ensure maximum airflow. Overloading your appliance can reduce the airflow coming from the vent at the back.
How To Avoid Undercooked/Overcooked Base
When it comes to pizza, being minimal is key. Pizzas with watery sauces, thicker bases or more toppings will need to be cooked on a slightly lower temperature for longer to dry out the moisture without burning the pizza. Double check the temperature of your oven with an infrared thermometer if you’ve got one, to ensure the pizza oven and the pizza stone is hot enough.
