About Gappsi wood and Gas fired brick ovens
A tradition Originating in the Sorrento Peninsula, in southern Italy. The product is a type of masonry brick called “Biscotto di Sorrento”. A unique product dating back to the 15th century and famed for its use as the base of the most prestigious wood fired pizza ovens.
Gappsi uses one of Sorrento’s oldest and only manufacturers of Biscotto di Sorrento currently operating and exclusively building Gappsi ovens. Artisans Master oven builders produce high quality products, custom wood fired ovens made with the famous bricks“Biscotto di Sorrento”following an ancient tradition and practice.
Only 60 years ago there used to be seven biscotto di Sorrento producers, providing employment to dozens of families, making it one of the most productive sectors in Italy. Today, the bricks and oven bases (Biscotto di Sorrento) that are produced by the craftsmen of Gappsi ovens, are used to build Gappsi wood fired ovens for bakeries and pizzerias. Our bricks and Biscotto di Sorrento can be found in every continent, in over 100 countries. Each year our artisan generates thousands of bricks for the construction of woodfired ovens, both in Italy and the USA.
Why Gappsi Biscotto di Sorrento?
The Clay is rich soil with volcanic pumice and silicon, a particular characteristic beneath Sorrento’s famed citrus orchards. Porous – Biscotto di Sorrento is produced with very porous clay. An oven base needs to be porous to both warm up early and maintain the heat for a long time, releasing this heat evenly.
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 ancient tradition of manufacturing: After manual extraction, the clay is carefully mixed with water in grinders and mixers. The clay is then put into different wooden molds, depending on the product needed, bricks or oven bases.
These bricks are then dried naturally for about three days in molds, the second step of natural drying of 10 days in a stacked position. As soon as the bricks acquire a light grey color, they are ready to be stacked in the kiln, to dry for another seven days. Finally, the kiln’s opening is bricked and closed and the natural firing phase is carried out. This involves the continuous burning of wood for seven hours. After four days of baking, the bricks are ready and at this time, have acquired a natural red color.
All Gappsi brick ovens are encapsulated with the best expanded clay ( argilla espansa ) produced from the same biscotto di Sorrento clay used to make the bricks for the dome and the floor of the oven.
