On my constant quest for the perfect gluten free Pizza, I recently started to look into wood fired Pizza ovens. My online research lead me to the most unlikely place to find a great oven. Black Diamond, Alberta. Black Diamond?
A mother daughter team, Jill & Heath, import one of the best if not the best residential Pizza oven from Italy, Mugnaini. Italy's original wood fired ovens.
Though I was very skeptical to be able to find this in Black Diamond, a visit to their show kitchen convinced me that this the real thing. This weekend I drove to the foothills and to inspect the oven Jill installed to show off this premium product.
By the time I got there, a fire made of apple wood was ready in this massive rustic red Pizza oven and all the makings of a Pizza were ready as well. The best way to show off an oven like this, is to make a Pizza for a prospective buyer Jill told me.
And right she is. The Pizza Heath made for me was done in about 2 minutes, at a temperature of around 800 degrees. The dough was PERFECT, the Pizza very tasty.
Now, I should have brought a gluten free Pizza shell from GF Patisserie to see how it would turn out, but I am certain this is the way to go. A real tasty, crispy gluten free Pizza!
What do you think of a gluten free Pizza party with Victoria's Pizza shells made in a wood fired oven? Anyone wants to come down to Black Diamond with us and try it? I think that would be a great party!
