Outdoor-Custom-Wood-Fired-Pizza-Ovens-On-Long-IslandWhat Is A Wood Fired Brick Pizza Oven?

A wood-fired brick oven is a specially designed oven that heats up evenly, retains high temperatures, and cooks the perfect pizzas, meats, and more. It is an oven that uses burning wood on the inside to heat up the surfaces. Once the oven has reached the right temperature, you can cook pizzas in just a few minutes or less; the oven reaches temperatures of 850+ degrees Fahrenheit.

How Do Wood Fired Brick Pizza Ovens Work?

A brick wood fired pizza oven can get to temperatures upwards of 850+ degrees without causing damage or compromising the structural integrity of the oven. The dome shape bounces the heat in every direction allowing the oven to be at the same temperature all over. This allows for pizzas and foods to cook evenly no matter where it sits in the oven.

What Kind Of Wood Is Used For Wood Fired Brick Pizza Oven?

Hardwoods are the best kinds of wood to use in a wood fired oven. Brick pizza ovens allow you to take advantage of delightful aromas and flavors you can’t get in a regular oven. You can use anything from applewood to oak, maple, and even hickory wood in a wood fired brick pizza oven.

Are All Brick Ovens Wood Fired?

Some brick ovens can be converted to gas or propane oven. Using this heat source can be convenient for people who want the perfect cooking properties of a brick oven without dealing with the mess of wood and ashes to clean up.

Construction of Outdoor Italian Brick Ovens by Gappsi Inc

Everything You Need To Know About Outdoor Italian Garden Brick Pizza Ovens in Nassau & Suffolk County, NY

Great pizza event at Gappsi oven!!

Italian brick ovens have been used for eons now. These ovens are renowned for producing drool-worthy pizzas. You can also use these excellent outdoor brick ovens for cooking all types of meats, vegetables, fish, bread, and even desserts. Gappsi produces an irresistible collection of durable Italian brick pizza ovens in Nassau & Suffolk County.

We use top-tier craftsmanship and the finest Italian clay bricks to construct our ovens. Our use of the Biscotto di Sorrento bricks, found only in a specific region of Campania on the Amalfi coast, makes these Gappsi brick ovens a cut above the rest. The clay used for the brick construction is mineral-rich. It absorbs the hat and disperses it uniformly, enabling the pizza to cook perfectly each time.

Here’s an overview of how Gappsi constructs its famous Italian brick ovens in Nassau & Suffolk County:

Gappsi’s Construction Method for Italian Brick Ovens

Here’s Gappsi’s construction process for its durable outdoor brick ovens made with Italian bricks:

The Construction of the Biscotto di Sorrento Bricks

The brick construction process starts when our artisans collect the clay and store it to dry. Then, we mix the clay until it becomes a consistent paste, which is molded into specific sizes. We stack the brick molds and let them dry naturally for several weeks. Then, we stack these bricks into a wood-burning fire chamber to cook them. These bricks are exposed to fire until they are ready to be used to construct the brick oven. We use these completed Biscotto di Sorrento bricks for our Gappsi brick oven floors and walls.

Italian Bread Made At The Gappsi Oven! (5)Basis Construction of the Oven

We start the brick oven construction process by building the metal frame base that works as the oven’s foundation. Our craftsmen insulate the concrete base’s underside to keep the oven’s bottom from overheating. We then install a wire mesh and pour the concrete. Then, our team assembles the brick oven floor by setting up the bricks and building the walls by putting the bricks in rows.

After assembling the first two rows, we remove the floor and fill the underside with volcanic sand and rock salt. This mixture acts as a subfloor to provide heat retention and insulation to the oven’s terracotta floor. Then, we install the Italian clay bricks on top of the volcanic sand mix. In some ovens, we drill a hole through the oven floor to fit gas burners inside.

Outdoor Brick Oven Walls & Door Frame

After building the base of outdoor brick pizza ovens in Nassau & Suffolk County, we erect the door frame. Out craftsmen cut the bricks to match the door shape. We install the first row of the Biscotto di Sorrento bricks vertically around the oven perimeter. We wedge the bricks together to minimize cement exposure on the inside of the oven. Upon the base wall completion, we install a top row of bricks to act as a bond beam. Then, we create the shape of the brick oven with a temporary volcanic sand dome. We use the wedged brick position to build the brick oven cupola.

Our craftsmen cover the brick dome exterior with a wire mesh and a reinforced layer of cement sand and clay pebbles. We do this to insulate the exterior crust of the oven.

Customization Based on Your Chosen Gappsi Brick Oven

We construct every Gappsi brick oven the same way up to a certain point. The interior is a symbol of impeccable craftsmanship, tradition, and beauty. It has remained unchanged for more than 300 years now. The exterior of all our Italian brick ovens in Nassau & Suffolk County features a large mantle made from volcanic black marble, which looks spectacular and offers heat resistance.

After the basic construction, we customize the Italian brick ovens based on your chosen finish and style. Gappsi brick ovens come in five incredible models – the Napolitano, the Vesuvio, the Sorrento, the Amalfi, and the Giotto. These models come in two sizes – inside diameter of 32inches and 44 inches. That said, we can customize your oven to any size you want and build it onsite.

Our Vesuvio ovens are built over the traditional oven shell. We build the dome for the smokestack over the metal frame and use a high-quality fiberglass blanket to insulate the oven domes. The Vesuvio ovens have a second frame with reinforced rebar and galvanized wireless to get a volcano-like shape. We also leave a cavity between the outside shell and the oven. Our craftsmen apply a layer of cement over the wireless dome. This air chamber serves two purposes – it offers insulation and ensures the exterior oven surface is cool and safe to touch.

For the Napolitano model, our craftsmen use different-sized river rocks for a unique look. The Sorrento model features random-sized natural stones and has brick accents. The Amalfi model features custom, hand-painted tiles. You can get a painting of your favorite picture with your loved ones and a name or message engraved into the oven’s metal door.

Construction of Outdoor Italian Brick Ovens by Gappsi IncWhat Makes Our Italian Brick Ovens Superior?

We construct Gappsi’s brick pizza ovens in Nassau & Suffolk County using a special clay. We get this clay from Sorrento, Italy, and mix it using a traditional mixer. This particular clay is rich in volcanic pumice and silicon. We place a wood mold on top of a platform and spread the clay in it by hand. It creates a spongy finished product, which allows the heat to spread evenly and slowly in the finished oven. Our clay bricks cannot be mass-produced since we pour them by hand for each new Italian outdoor brick oven.

The Bottom Line

Brick Pizza Oven Construction

Brick-Pizza-Oven-Construction1

The process of building Gappsi Brick Pizza Oven Construction starts with the collection of clay and storing the bricks to dry and cure.  The drying process continues for several weeks.

The Artisan starts to mix the clay for the bricks at the time the manufacturer places the order. We mix the clay constantly in order for the molding process to take place and so it reaches a thick paste.  Gappsi measures and sizes the bricks for each oven.

At the time of the request, the manufacturer starts making the clay bricks to use. For several weeks the drying process continues. Smaller bricks dry naturally stacked. Stacked into a chamber with a wood-burning fire the clay bricks complete the drying process.

Gappsi Brick Pizza Oven Construction

  • Our brick ovens start with a metal frame base which is the foundation for the oven.
  • Gappsi applies insulation under the concrete base to keep the bottom of the oven insulated.
  • Wire mesh added.
  • Concrete poured.
  • Assembling the floor of the oven is next.
  • The Biscotto of Sorrento bricks are set up and used to start building the walls around the floor.
  • This combination acts as a subfloor that provides insulation as well as heat retention under the oven’s terracotta floor.
  • Volcanic sand is the base the Biscotto Di Sorrento clay bricks sit on. In this particular oven we build, we drill the hole completely through the oven floor.
  • Installed in each Gappsi Brick Oven is a gas burner.  In addition to using a gas burner to heat the oven, you may also use wood.

There Is Nothing Like The Taste and Smell Of Brick Oven Pizza

Brick-Pizza-Oven-Construction4

Gappsi is starting to build the walls by erecting the door frame and cutting the bricks to match the door angle.

  • Vertically installed Biscotto Di Sorrento clay bricks create the soldier course around the perimeter of the oven.
  • Italian artisans install the bricks to perfection.
  • The top row forms the bond beam with the brick’s base wall.
  • The dome shape is created by using a temporary dome made out of volcanic sand.

The cupola inside the oven was also created using the same techniques to build the dome. We use this process until the brick dome is complete too. The exterior of the brick dome is covered with a wire mesh as well as a reinforced layer of a mix of cement is added.  Sand in addition to expanded clay pebbles is added to further insulate the oven exterior process.

Brick-Pizza-Oven-Construction3

The picture above is a completed oven structure using the best clay bricks for an oven.  Built the same way each oven.  Up to this point, each model is constructed the same way.  From this point, it depends on the finishing style the oven would take shape of the desired model. The interior of every Gappsi oven is a site of craftsmanship, beauty, as well as history. For more than 300 years this tradition has not changed. The exterior of every Gappsi oven comes standard with a large useful mantle made out of volcanic black marble. This is beautiful and also heat resistant.

Brick-Pizza-Oven-Construction2

Using the traditional oven shell we are building the Vesuvio-style oven using a combination of brick accent to face the front of the oven.

Built over a metal frame and insulated is the smoke stacks dome. A high-quality fiberglass blankets the Gappsi oven dome for insulation. Built on the outside of the oven is also a second frame. Galvanized wire lath wraps the reinforced rebars for additional support.

True Brick Oven Italian Artistry & Craftsmanship

True craftsmanship and precise execution go into every Gappsi Brick Oven Construction. Over the wire, we apply a layer of cement.  The air chamber created services for two purposes. This provides all the insulation for the oven and makes the exterior surface of the oven safe as well as cool to the touch. The final installation of the top cupola is smoke style and the Vesuvio model is complete.

This is our Napolitano model veneered with the river rocks. These are our craftsmen posing with the Sorrento model oven. Standard veneered with random sizes, natural stones, and brick accents. And to complete our line of custom brick ovens is the Amalfi style. Finished with custom hand-painted tiles of your favorite memories with friends and family. You can also have your family name engraved into the door on the oven. Thank you for taking your time to learn more about our brick ovens and construction process.

Italian Clay Bricks In Pizza Ovens Handmade

Italian Clay Bricks In Pizza Ovens

Italian Clay Bricks In Pizza Ovens have been around for centuries, and for good reason because they produce uniquely spectacular pizzas. It is much more than a pizza oven. Gappsi Brick Ovens open up a wonderfully savory world of open hearth cooking, including meats, fish, vegetables, bread, and even desserts. Crafted with an artisan’s soul, a passion for detail, and unmatched customer service, Gappsi sets the industry standard for performance, practicality, and longevity for Outdoor Ovens.

What Makes Brick Oven Pizzas Special?

Neopolitan-style pizzas are special. The crust is crisp and flecked with tell-tale charred spots, evidence of being baked in an extremely hot oven. The interior of the dough is soft, elastic, tender, and fragrant, and the toppings are cooked to perfection.

Achieving the perfect pizza is not easy! The pizza pros usually use brick ovens that heat from 625ºF – 700ºF.

For perfect pizza, the cook must balance the two so that the dough and the toppings finish cooking at the same time. For that, they need to get the oven temperature right.  The Roman pizzaiolos (pizza bakers) used the high temperature, combined with the thermodynamic properties of the bricks. The vaulted cavity of the brick oven and the thick layer of bricks at the bottom of the oven guarantees even heating of the pizza. Brick ovens are ideal because the crust heats at a high but reasonable temperature giving the toppings enough time to properly cook.  This combination adds to the secret of the perfect pizza.

Italian Clay Bricks In Pizza

Italian Clay Bricks In Pizza Ovens Floors

The clay is one of the most important parts of making the brick and if your clay isn’t of high quality, there’s no way your pizza oven is going to be high quality.  The video below it shows the floor of the pizza oven and how the Artisian makes it using the traditional mixer.  This machine mixes the clay gathered locally in the region of Sorrento Italy.  The Clay is rich soil with volcanic pumice and silicon, a particular characteristic beneath Sorrento’s famed citrus orchards.  An oven base needs to be porous.  The pours help to warm up early and maintain the heat for a long time, releasing this heat evenly.

This is an old manufacturer that has been around for hundreds of years in Italy.  Time and tradition keep with each generation.  as the clay is mixed and poured to make the brick.

A wood mold is placed on top of a platform and the clay is spread by hand.  Simply spreading the clay by hand and not pressing it creates a more spongy finished product.  The bricks can absorb the heat and release the heat slowly. The clay is found locally and has been used for hundreds of years too.  Gappsi Italian Clay Bricks is not a product you can mass produce, the clay is being excavated locally in Sorrento Italy, and poured by hand for your next Italian Pizza Oven Order.

A Real Master Piece and Italian Art In Your Home!

The Amalfi Oven

We design Gappsi Brick Ovens using a machine made in the most traditional way. The techniques used are no longer around or followed by any other manufacturer that makes bricks or pizza ovens. Smoothing out the top surface is what makes the stone denser on the surface. You are talking about something made by hand; a real piece of Italian Art. Here it is!  And it can be YOURS. We prepare each brick in the same way; it is a dying art. To make each stone you literally have to feel the product as you make it. Craftsmen that create these particular bricks have a passion for the trade and understand a very old method of producing a brick oven. Every brick made for a Gappsi customer oven has this much care in producing it!

Wood | Gas Fired Pizza Ovens

The difference between Biscotto di Sorrento and other types of brick materials on the market is that it does not burn the bottom of a pizza, absorbing moisture from the dough.

Gappsi Artisan strictly follows the ancient tradition of manufacturing:

  • Manual extraction of the clay.
  • Mix clay using water, grinders, and mixers
  • Form clay into different molds: bricks or floor bases.
  • Dried for 3 days in molds
  • Dried for 10 days in a stacked position
  • Clay bricks turn light grey after we fire them in the kiln.
  • Dried for 7 more days
  • The natural firing phase.

This involves the continuous burning of wood for seven hours. Then, after four days of baking the bricks are ready and have acquired a natural red color.

The unique flavor of brick oven pizza can cause any foodie to wish that they owned a brick oven of their own. Not only are they useful, but brick ovens also add elegance to any outdoor living area.

Brick Ovens Construction Methods. Welcome To Gappsi, My Name is Giuseppe Abbrancati and I will give you a demonstration  of our brick ovens construction and models. We carry 5 different styles  and  we have them displayed at the Gappsi showroom for you to view them in person. Gappsi brick ovens are by far the best on the market,

As far as construction, material used to build them, designs, finishes and functionality. They all come with a standard finish. Which includes stucco, pebble rocks, random cut stones and tiles? We also offer custom finishes to your specifications such as  personalized engraving  of your favorite pictures hand painted by our artists on the exterior of the

As part of our Brick Ovens Construction Methods We can also cast your desired words on the oven metal door. If you are in the market for a brick oven, and do enough researches you will learn about the Biscotto di Sorrento, many companies that use something similar as the biscotto di Sorrento will make a big deal about it, and also will charge you more money as an upgrade of the ovens floor. Many of you would ask? What is the biscotto di Sorrento? The biscotto di Sorrento is a terracotta brick manufactured from clay that is only found in Italy in the region of Campania in the Sorrento area on the Amalfi coast. This clay is rich in natural minerals that will absorb, retain and release   the heat uniformly; making your cooking process the most natural cooking experience you can get using a brick oven. The difference between a Gappsi biscotto di Sorrento and the competition is that many companies that claim to use the  only use to make the base on the oven,

Gappsi builds the entire oven, floor, walls and dome with the same material. The Gappsi method of building brick ovens, is a tradition that dates back over 300 years From one of the first producers of the biscotto di Sorrento still in business in Italy today after many generations.

The process of building Gappsi brick ovens starts with the collection of the clay and stored to dry. When it’s time to manufacture the bricks it gets mixed, the clay is then made in to a consistent paste and then molded in to specific sizes  and let to dry. The drying process continues for several weeks, smaller bricks are stacked and also let to dry naturally. The dried clay bricks are then stacked into a chamber and then a wood burning fire is used in the furnace below to cook the clay bricks into their final stage of manufacturing. These are the complete terracotta biscotto di Sorrento for the ovens floor and bricks that will be used to build the Gappsi brick ovens.

This is how we build Gappsi ovens starting with a metal frame base that works as the foundation for the oven; we apply insulation under the concrete base to keep the very bottom of the oven insulated, then we install wire mesh before the concrete is poured. As we pour the cement into the form we preset the hole for a future gas burner to be installed. Then we start with the assembling of the floor, we set up the biscotto di Sorrento bricks and start building the walls around , and after we complete the first 2 rows we ten remove the floor and fill the void with volcanic sand, mixed with rock salt, this combination acts as a subfloor that provides insulation and heat retention under the ovens terracotta floor.

Then the clay brick biscotto di Sorrento is installed above the volcanic sand. In this particular oven we drilled the hole completely through the ovens floor because this oven will have a gas burner and will work with both gas and wood fire. Here we are starting to build the walls, starting with erecting the door frame and cutting the bricks to match the door angles. The first row of biscotto di Sorrento bricks is installed vertically as a soldier course around the perimeter of the oven the bricks are installed in a wage position that minimizes the cement exposure on the inside of the oven in between brick joints. Bricks are plumbed and installed to perfection by artisans installers as the base wall is complete a top row of bricks is installed as a bond beam and the shape of the dome is created with a temporary dome made out of volcanic sand.

The dome is then built over using the same technique of waged bricks to create the cupola inside the oven. This process is used till the completion of the brick dome then the exterior of the brick dome is covered with a wire mesh  reinforced layer of a mix of cement , sand and expanded clay pebbles further insulating the ovens exterior crust. This is the ovens structure completed with the best clay bricks.

Every Gappsi oven is built the same way up to this point then it depends on the finish and style the oven will take the shape of the desired model. The interior of every Gappsi oven is a site of craftsmanship, Beauty, and History of a tradition that has been unchanged for more than 300 years and the exterior of every Gappsi oven comes standard with a large useful mentality, made out of volcanic black marble, which is beautiful and also heat resistant. Using the traditional oven shell,

Here we are building the vesuvio style oven a combination of brick accent, to face the front of the oven, the dome for the smokestack is being built over a metal frame and insulated all Gappsi ovens domes are insulated with a high quality fiberglass blanket, a second frame is built on the outside of the oven. all rebar reinforced and wrapped with galvanized wireleath. A volcano shape is accomplished and a cavity is also created between the oven and the outside shell.

True craftsmanship and precise execution goes into every Gappsi brick oven construction. A layer of cement is then applied over the wireleath; the air chamber created serves two purposes this provides more insulation for the oven and makes the exterior surface of the oven safe and cool to the touch, the final installation of the top cupola the smoke stack And the vesuvio model is Complete.
