Earthen ovens are thick walled to retain the heat of the fire which is cleaned out before baking, food is cooked as the heat is released into the chamber, the slow release of the heat creates a unique texture to breads calazones pizzas and other baked goods.   Earthen ovens have been part of village life for centuries, people would congregate to bake their loaves in communal ovens, meals were prepared and shared around these mounds worldwide, come be a part of the wood fired oven experience.
