Delicio Coal Fired Pizza
Sometimes you have to look to the past, before you can move forward. The first pizza served in the United States back in 1905 was cooked in — you guessed it — a coal-burning oven! This might be the traditional cooking method, but it’s definitely not the easiest. Coal creates an extreme degree of heat – upwards of 1100 degrees. Everything from ignition to ventilation to maintenance requires great attention and skill.
But the unmistakable taste makes it all worthwhile. It’s that smoky-charred flavor you just won’t find in any other oven.
At Delicio Coal Fired Pizza, our pizzaiolos use a variety of coal called anthracite. Many people associate coal with billowing black smoke or faces smudged with soot. However, with anthracite, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Anthracite produces a smokeless blue flame that burns cleanly with very little soot. In fact, it is more environmentally-friendly than wood fires or gas grills. Not to mention the high-intensity-heat that provides a flavor that cannot be replicated.
