Elevate your pizza-making skills and achieve leopard-spotted crusts with the Gozney Dome Neapolitan Arch. This Arch goes beyond conventional design by lowering the door height—a strategic move that enhances heat retention. As a result, it creates an ideal environment for high-hydration doughs, enabling you to master the art of Neapolitan pizza.
Reach high temperatures
In the realm of Neapolitan pizza, precision is key. The cooking process demands extremely high temperatures and swift execution. The oven must reach full heat saturation, exceeding 450°C (845°F), allowing for remarkably short cooking times of just 60 seconds. Achieving the perfect rise and the sought-after leopard-charred crust on high-hydration dough requires an exceptionally high air temperature. Here, the Neapolitan Arch comes into play by narrowing the aperture of the oven mouth. Allowing an environment where the air temperature can soar, ensuring the flawless cooking of the perfect Neapolitan pizza.
The arch has ceramic bonding, with a strategically designed recess in the central aperture. This feature enables the pizza chef to ‘dome’ pizzas—placing the turning peel under the crust and lifting the pizza up into the flames, exposing it to the highest temperature of the oven. This innovative design enhances the control and precision needed to achieve the desired texture and flavour in each pizza.
In complement to the Neapolitan Arch, the Dome’s Flue Extension plays a crucial role. Efficiently channelling away smoke and soot from the oven, it significantly improves air-flow. This not only contributes to a cleaner cooking environment but also enhances the overall cooking experience.
It’s important to note that the Neapolitan Arch is purposefully crafted for use with gas only, not with wood. This design consideration ensures that the Arch seamlessly integrates with gas-powered ovens, optimizing the cooking process and preserving the authenticity of Neapolitan pizza. So, take your pizza craftsmanship to new heights with the Neapolitan Arch and savour the perfect blend of tradition and innovation in every slice.
