Is it better to cook with wood or gas?

12 July 2022

The True Neapolitan Pizza manual recommends the use of a wood-fired oven, and according to tradition, it could not be otherwise.
There are, however, situations in which the use of a wood-fired oven is impossible or inconvenient (special prohibitions, larger oven space, availability and storage of wood, etc. etc.). Therefore, the gas oven is advisable, guaranteeing ease of use (thanks to electronic temperature control), greater hygiene (no soot), and reduced consumption (gas is cheaper than wood in some cases). There is therefore no real answer to this question, which depends on the place where the oven will be used and the preferences of the pizza chef.
