“You can’t have good pizza without good bread. Starting with a delicious, well-crafted dough is number one in my book. I love wood-fired pizza, but good bread and therefore good pizza can be made in any oven. Ceramic smokers and Ooni pizza ovens are great alternatives to a full-blown wood-burning oven.” – Justin Bennett
