It all started with lunch. Ten or so years ago. Picture it, Dupont Circle, Washington DC….Pizzeria Paradiso. A wood fired pizza oven blazed in the background while we awaited its tasty contents. I was mesmerized. Upon our return to NYC, I obsessed over Google research about wood fired ovens for home use. It turns out that there is a fairly large community out there in cyberspace who share stories and recipes all centering around their wood fired ovens! Who knew.
