Brick vs. Conventional Pizza Ovens – What’s the Difference?

What makes the Barcode pizza so special?

The every day pizza that you encounter is baked in a conventional oven. At Barcode, we use the highest quality brick oven on the market. The Cirigliano Forni oven gives our pizza the taste of Italy that every pie should have.

The best part about using a brick oven for pizza is the fact that it takes only 3-4 minutes to make! The high cooking temperatures make it possible for us to get our specialty pies to your table in no time. Ranging from 570°F to 723°F, the oven produces soft, chewy dough with a smoky flavor.

There’s no comparison between brick and conventional ovens. Regular ovens fill pizza crust and your plate with grease. A brick oven pizza is thin enough for you to taste every topping and want to finish the whole pie yourself!
