Brick Ovens: Even, Efficient Heat

Brick ovens are one of the best ways to make crisp, flavorful pizzas. Find out what separates them from everyday appliances with Groupon’s guide to these brick bakers.

The inside of a brick oven can reach temperatures of up to 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit, but, if it’s built right, it’ll be barely warm to the touch. Brick ovens’ ability to keep a lot of heat inside is the reason why pizza chefs and bakers around the world stoke the flames every day as happily as a kid who just got a pet dragon. The intensity and uniformity of the heat mean that it may take little more than a minute to get a pizza with perfectly bubbly mozzarella and a golden crust—and, as a side benefit, a deliciously charred flavor.

The ovens absorb heat uniformly into their dense walls, where it lingers to evenly bake dishes from every direction. In fact, although wood, coal, or gas flames do provide the initial heat, they’re not what cooks the pizza—the bricks themselves do. Unlike metal or slabs of cake, bricks and other earthen materials radiate the heat they’ve soaked up gradually, rather than bouncing it straight back. Depending on the design, the fire may be inside the cooking chamber or may heat it from without, and in either case, the interior can remain hot enough to bake bread long after the last embers have gone out.

Taste Frederick Food Tours

Sarah Withers adores her hometown. To chronicle her forays into her beloved city's flourishing culinary scene, she started writing a blog. She soon set out to give her audiences a more hands-on experience, and now immerses them in Frederick's offerings with food and walking tours. Inspired by a tour she took in New York City, she recruited tour guides who can bring the burg's history to life and are familiar with the secret portals to 19th-century chocolate stashes. The experts guide visitors in storied jaunts through Frederick's center, where they sample painstakingly crafted cuisine and suds from the town's first brewpub while learning about its past and present.

Loved it! I am looking forward to going again with some friends!

Our Frederick Food tour was very enjoyable. Our guide, Jackie, was very personable and knowledgeable. There were a few glitches with the eateries as one did not have a table reserved for us as expected and the chocolate shop was actually closed. Things worked out and it still was a great experience. The food and drink items selected by the tour were very good and we would recommend this highly for a fun afternoon excursion.
