The activity will begin with setting a fire for the oven; next I will reveal the secret recipe and formula for making the pizza dough and then the participants will all mix their own dough; While keeping the fire going and awaiting the dough mature we will prepare some simple toppings. Once the oven is ready participants will make pizza bases, dress their pizza and take the opportunity to cook their creation in the pizza oven. Each participant will make enough dough for two to three bases so we will make a starter type pizza giving the freedom to practise rolling out pizza bases and cook them in the oven as this skill can take a bit of practice to master. Any remaing dough can be taken away as the dough will remain viable for 24hrs or can be frozen and used withing a month.
I inherited an outside pizza oven when we moved into our home 15 years ago. After many trials and errors we modified the oven's characteristics to perform as an outside cooking area. Tutored by a master baker and using his secret french recipe for a pizza dough we have spent many, many enjoyable evening with friends making and cooking the most delicious pizzas. Our friends and their children commend the pizzas as the best around. Over the years we have expanded our knowledge of the usage of the oven to cooking many other dishes and utilising the saved up heat energy that the oven gives back. I believe that we can now claim expertise in outdoor cooking.
All equipment needed for fire preparation, making the pizza dough and cooking the pizzas in an outdoor woodfired pizza oven…
All of the activity will take place at just the one location on the Ohope spit over looking both the ocean and Ohiwa harbour
