Frequently Asked Questions

Forza Forni stocks only Italian brick ovens designed after the traditional "Pompeii" oven design used for millenia. The shape of the spherical dome, smaller mouth opening and placement of the fire create a swirling heat pressure effect that can reach hotter temperatures and stay hot. No other style of wood fired oven is so well suited to reaching such high temperatures with a single modest heat source. Both the Pavesi wood fired oven line and Acunto Neapolitan brick oven line adhere to this basic oven design - a tried and true method to baking excellent pizza and other wood fired goods.

Although both regions of Italy use the basic tenets of the Pompeii oven design, there are a few differences in their execution. Northern Italian ovens from Tuscany, Emilia-Romagna, etc tend to have a taller dome than their Southern counterparts. This allows the oven to bake a more varied range of pizza styles (from NY style to crisp artisan style) and hold temperatures that range from 500ºF to 1000ºF. See the Pavesi wood and gas fired pizza oven and the Pavesi rotating pizza oven for examples of this style. The Southern (Neapolitan) style oven has a low dome and is built to work with very high heat, between 800ºF to 1000ºF. This heat creates a stronger top heat that superbly bakes the Neapolitan style pizza typical of Naples. See the Acunto Neapolitan pizza oven as an example of this style.

We support Steno dough mixers due to their superior capabilities in dough mixing. Compared to the name brand mixers typically available in North America, the Steno mixers are a world of difference. North American name brand mixers are typically not specialized dough mixers - they heat the dough as a byproduct of their mixing process, which artificially begins the fermentation process and creates a dull dough. Steno spiral mixers, fork mixers and diving arm mixers actively avoid heating the dough, creating a more consistent product that rises when actually desired.
