This time of year (in South Florida) is the perfect season to enjoy your outdoor living space. Unfortunately, studies show our use of digital devices is keeping us cooped up inside.
We all know that spending time outside can lead to significant health benefits. Being outdoors will elevate your mood and boost your memory, you’re less likely to pick up a virus, you are more likely to be physically active which keeps joints loose and helps with chronic pain and stiffness and you may heal faster.
After years of popular demand, Kalamazoo created a built-in version of its famous pizza oven for people who want an oven installed into a wall or masonry structure and not sitting on a countertop.
Like the traditional wood-fired pizza ovens, the built-in Artisan Fire Pizza Oven is stone-lined. Pizzas cook directly on a hollow-core baking deck. Its honeycombed interior is designed to rapidly change temperature. A ceiling stone radiates heat down to quickly brown toppings.
The Artisan Fire Pizza Oven uses propane or natural gas and heats up in about 20 minutes. It is capable of the high heat needed for making delicious pizza, reaching temperatures of 800 degrees Fahrenheit via two independent burners.
Of course, the outdoor oven can be used to make other dishes such as roasting meats, fish and vegetables. Simply use cast iron fajita pans right on the baking deck. Kalamazoo’s Asparagus Wraps with Crispy Prosciutto and Herbed Cheese seems to be a very popular recipe for pizza oven owners.
Priced at $8,295, the oven will surely be the center point of your Outdoor Entertaining. The Oven can be specified for either natural gas or liquid propane, and is made by hand in Kalamazoo, Michigan, of stainless steel.
Kalamazoo has a terrific newsletter filled with great recipes that I personally enjoy. Try this incredible recipe with pancetta and baby arugula.
