Opening up your own pizzeria? That’s cool. The world will always need more pizzerias. Especially my world. I don’t want to be able to walk two blocks without the opportunity to grab a slice. That sounds horrible. When you’re in the crucial equipment decision stage of planning your location, there are a few different styles of pizza ovens to consider. The one purchased for your locations should reflect the volume of pizzas produced in a day, as well as the style of pizza you’ll be cooking up.
Pizza deck ovens are the most popular in the business. Around 50 to 70 percent of pizza ovens sold are deck models. The reasons for this are cost and quality. Deck ovens are large steel boxes that contain stone decks. They’re a lot more simple to use than conveyor ovens, which feature more complicated moving parts than a deck oven. However, while they cost less and produce a crispier, more flavorful pie, deck ovens cannot produce the high volume that a conveyor oven can. If your locations is focused more on gourmet pies and quality crust rather than quantity, go with a deck.
For larger chains, a conveyor oven is the way to go. They’re more expensive, but you can get a return on your investment much quicker than with a deck – since you’ll be banging out massive quantities every day. Also, they do not require as much monitoring of a deck oven. Once the speed and thermometer are set on a conveyor oven, all that has to be done is to set a pie on one end and catch it on the other. Consistency is easy to achieve and maintain on a conveyor, while on a deck it’s more of a skill.
Whether you select a pizza deck oven or a pizza conveyor oven, your location will need a pizza prep table to make the actual pies. Refrigerated pizza prep tables are different from sandwich and salad models because of their wider prep and cutting area.
