Wood-Fired Pizza – That’s Amore!

If you’ve ever tasted one of our wood-fired pizzas, you don’t need us to tell you that there is no better way to enjoy hot bread and cheese.

Our custom made oven reaches temperatures of nearly 400°C and can cook a pizza in under two minutes.  The trick is to keep a small fire continuously burning to maintain that optimum heat which is retained in the carefully designed thick-walled dome.

A quick bake like this means that the crust is crispy but still has a good chew, while the toppings are cooked to perfection without being over-done. We’ve all pulled a shop bought pizza out of the oven to find it soggy in the middle and carbonised everywhere else.

We are lucky enough to have our very own woodland where we cut a mixture of willow, ash and sycamore to feed the flames.  We only use these specific woods as they are not only a great fuel source, but the regular coppicing of these faster growing species helps to maintain the forest.

Using hardwoods like these ensures we get maximum heat in the quickest possible time, which also cuts down on smoke creation.  Another bonus is that we never run out of wood, we simply send the boss up the road with his trailer and a chainsaw!

We also use the highest quality ingredients to ensure the best tasting crust and we champion locally produced toppings like our sausage from Henderson’s of Glenrothes and fresh salmon smoked at Kinross Smokehouse.

We’ve got 8 delicious pizzas on the menu at the moment but we’re creative types; if you have a hankering for a tailor-made offering, just ask and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.
