The Best Logs for Pizza Ovens

When choosing logs for your pizza oven, the priority should be the moisture content and wood species followed by the size of your logs – thinly cut logs are essential.

Pizza ovens require logs that are low in moisture content to eliminate smoke generated by the fire – no-one wants pizza that tastes like it’s been sat on a bed of ash!

Thinly cut logs like our specialized pizza oven logs will ensure you can create small, easy to light fires that reach your ovens desired temperature quickly, giving your pizzas that crisp and tasty wood-fired base.

Warning: Using logs that are too thick or high in moisture will lead to incomplete combustion and you will struggle to achieve or sustain the cooking temperatures required.

Unlike compressed waste sawdust products such as briquettes that may contain chemicals and binders, real logs don’t generate excess dust or ash that can land on and ruin the taste of your pizza.

The species of wood determines how long the logs burn for – only use hardwoods such as birch, ash and oak to avoid fluctuations in cooking temperature.

Use some of our natural firelighters to establish your fire with a handful of kindling before adding your logs to create a long sustained fire that will cook your guests’ pizzas within minutes.

The art of cooking delicious wood-fired pizza with professional results and becoming a master “Pizzaiolo” is effortless when using the correct type of wood and size of logs.
