When it comes to making pizza, there’s so much to enjoy. Preparing your wood or gas fuelled oven. Smelling the aroma of the fire heating up. Preparing your ingredients. Making the dough. Then seeing it all culminate in an aromatic, perfectly baked charred crust that you can sink your teeth into.
But did you know there are a number of accessories that can take your pizza making game to the next level? We’ve compiled a list of the ones we’d most recommend you purchase. They will not only make your life easier, but should also improve the end product. Let’s dive in.
Infrared Digital Thermometer
Depending on whether your pizza oven is wood, or gas fired, it can typically expect to exceed 450°C in order to achieve the perfect charred crust. Of course, because this is an extreme level of heat and pizza ovens do not come with dials to control the temperature you may be wary of getting too close to gauge how hot your pizza oven actually is.
Introducing the infrared digital thermometer! Of course, safety is one thing, but ensuring your oven is up to the correct temperature is also an important factor to achieve the perfect cook on your pizza. No longer will you have to worry about whether your pizza oven is ready to perfectly cook your pizza as you can simply point the gun towards the centre of the stone, and the thermometer gives you the exact temperature reading. This means you can have consistently perfectly cooked pizza’s every time.
The thermometer can measure temperatures between -50°C to 750°C so you know precisely the right time to launch. The temperature can be measured in Celsius or Fahrenheit depending on what you’re most familiar with.
Dual platform digital scales
Tired of the guesswork when it comes to measuring your dough ingredients? Our dual platform digital scales can measure ingredients to as close as a 10th of a gram! This ensures you use exactly the right quantity ingredients for your dough, which as we know is a bit of a science to get it perfect! With a dual LCD display you can have your measurements to the milligrams. There’s also no need to worry about deep cleaning the scales.
Made from stainless steel and plastic, a wipe over with a damp cloth and antibacterial spray will do the trick! The scales also have two platforms with a custom measuring dish so you can easily store them without needing to dig out all the pots from the cupboard. Battery powered; the dual scales can support up to:
- 10,000g | 22lb | 10,000 ml | 350fl.oz for the large scale with increments of 1g | 0.1oz | 1ml | 0.1fl.oz.
- Or 200g Max 200g | 0.4lb | 200ml | 7fl.oz with increments of 0.1g | 0.02oz | 0.1ml | 0.02fl.oz for the smaller scale.
Launch peels and spinners
Pizza peels are an essential tool to not only safely launch your pizza without burning your hands, but also their unique design ensures the pizza slides off the peel without a hitch, and the holes allow any excess flour on the bottom of your pizza to drop off and fulfil your dream of at least looking like a professional pizzeria chef. Usually made from wood or metal, pizza peels are also less likely to damage your perfectly cooked delicate crust.
Similarly, we would also strongly advise you opt for a pizza spinner or turning peel. Pizza spinners are a peel that helps you turn your pizza around easily whilst it is cooking. This helps the pizza to cook evenly ensuring you have a piping hot, melt in the middle pizza with an evenly charred crust. Luckily with our elite accessory bundle you don’t need to choose between the two as both are included! The bundle is also accompanied with a cleaning brush with a scraper for dealing with stubborn scorches on your pizza oven and a 120cm embers rake to move the wood and embers safely around the oven to clean down even faster!
