It’s time to start experimenting with recipes after your outdoor pizza oven is constructed! We are confident that you will discover many suggestions for enhancing your masterpieces, whether you are an avid foodie or a fan of a traditional pepperoni pizza. However, ultimately you might wish to even stray from just pizza and try cooking other foods in that outdoor poolside oven. And if that day comes, there are a multitude of savory options to consider experimenting with your outdoor brick oven. Remember this general rule: if you can roast it indoors, you can cook it outside, too! On a chilly winter day, consider what you would be roasting in your indoor oven.
Main Courses & Meat
Start with the foods you used to grill throughout the summer. You can cook steaks, baby back ribs, and more in your brick oven. Find a rack that will allow you to place the steaks directly over the flames in order to cook a steak properly. Sprinkle seasoning on both sides and drizzle some olive oil over them. Then, for a yummy smoke flavor, add some hickory nuts and cook according to your preferences.
Of course, there are other protein-rich options besides red meat when it comes to main dishes. A significant source of vitamin D, omega-3 fatty acids, and other benefits for your physical, emotional, and mental health is fish and other seafood. In your brick oven, you may cook salmon, a perennially popular fish dish, using cedar wood. Cook the fish on wood planks with a splash of citrus, some sea salt, and black pepper once the oven has warmed up for around 45 minutes. The fish will only need to bake for around five minutes after being placed on the cedar slabs. Then, with a bit more orange juice, your fish will make a wonderful centerpiece for your savory and healthful meal.
Remember to Eat Your Vegetables
Even many non-vegetarians can appreciate the roasted vegetables’ dietary advantages and mouthwatering flavors. Vegetables’ many vitamins and nutrients, as well as their flavors, can literally be cooked out of them; but, if you roast the same vegetables, you’ll tend to keep both.
Simply place seasoned vegetables covered in foil on top of the smoldering, red-hot coals that were left over from another meal. To make your own unique vegetable roast, you can blend your preferred spices, buy prepackaged flavor packets, or research numerous seasoning recipes. Some recipes even use melted, soft cheese in conjunction with the roasted vegetables to essentially give a nod to the original item that was cooked in your outdoor pizza oven.
You’ll see how adaptable cooking in a brick oven can be once you start experimenting! When you finish your outdoor lunch with a traditional dessert (such as Basque Burnt Cheesecake), you’ll see that the options for your outdoor cooking are truly limitless.
