For this demonstration, I purchased all of our charcoal, split wood and wood chucks from a local major grocery store chain right here on the Eastern Shore. You can get these items just about anywhere and you don’t need that much.

Is we now have a wood-fired oven for baking all sorts of our favorite dishes. I had prepared some sourdough bread dough and thought it would be a great idea to throw a couple of baguettes on the Kettle Pizza once the temp got down to 500 and below. That is exactly what we did and it produced the best bread I have ever baked. Super crunchy crust with a soft middle and lots of bubbles. Perfect bread, all our camera crew and guest raved!

Ed Levine Talks Neapolitan Pizza with Enzo Coccia and Maurizio De Rosa
An associate and friend of mine just got back from Italy where he went to a pizza party in Naples where “Enzo” the world famous Italian pizza maestro hosted the party. A “Night of 100 pizza’s” and it was! The report back from Naples was that the pies were fantastic and a huge variety. In the picture above, Enzo is on the left. I came across this video because it was just classic regarding two Italian chefs trying to explain ovens, cooking times, etc. So incredible! Funny too! My buddy said a lot of great things about his time with Enzo and also said he did not speak a word of English, and neither did his pizza book.
"Soggy Pizza is a historical necessity". What a great line!
A great time had by all!
