If you are a pizza lover then you would know that there is something really amazing about wood-fired pizza ovens. The taste of the pizzas cooked in them is amazing and that smokey flavor really adds to everything.
There is something really delicious and tempting about these pizzas and almost every one of us wish if we could make them at home, the only thing stopping us is that hefty price tag on wood-fired pizza ovens.
The price tag and the effort that goes into burning the wood in the oven, tempering and all of that jazz just made me run away from trying to cook in those huge wood-fired pizza ovens.
The Uuni 2S is way better than the typical heavy wood-fired pizza ovens mentioned above. Uuni 2S is light in weight and can easily cook pizza in under 90 seconds. You do not need to temper the pizza oven as it uses wood pellets.
Using wood pellets not only made the entire cooking process easier and faster but also helped in reduced smoke emission making them more eco-friendly.

Cooking with the Uuni 2S Pizza Oven
Cooking with the Uuni 2S pizza oven is easy as all you have to do is fill the hopper with wood pellets and put some lighter fluid and get the fire started with a lighter.
The wood pellets burn easily and help you reach the desired temperature in the wood-fired pizza oven.
However, you might have to keep adding pellets in the case you are cooking a pizza for a group of people as the pellets burn out fast and in order to maintain the temperature of the pizza oven you might want to keep adding pellets at regular intervals.
The insides of the pizza oven have double insulation which helps maintain the temperature inside the pizza oven.
The pizza oven does lack a thermometer so maintaining the temperature can be a little tricky.
The oven is not going to give the aluminiam shine all the time but after the first use itself, you will have some part of it covered in soot which is bound to happen especially the area near the hopper where you are going to burn the pellets.
The chimney of the pizza oven s designed very carefully such that all the fumes are out of the oven and there is a consistent temperature maintained throughout the pizza oven.
Cooking the pizzas in the oven was pretty simple as all we had to do was insert the pizza in the oven and wait for around 30 seconds before giving it a turn.
Yes, you might want to turn around the pizza oven, else it can get easily burned on the side which is closer to the hopper. Overall, the pizza was cooked in around 90 seconds which is pretty fast.
The pizza was crisp at the bottom and gooey and soft melted cheese on the top with perfectly cooked toppings. The pizzas taste amazing as well and once you try out the pizzas in this oven, you are just going to get addicted.
