Masonry ovens are built with a baking chamber that contains a small fire pushed to one side. These ovens are generally built with fire-resistant materials like firebrick, clay, or even directly cast from refractory cement. The function of a masonry oven is to trap and radiate heat from a hardwood fire while the smoke is vented through the front of the oven. This passing of smoke allows for a unique flavor to develop in the foods cooked in the oven. Pizza and bread are not the only foods that can be cooked in a masonry oven, desserts, roasted vegetables, and slow cooked meats can also be cooked to delicious perfection.
