Eat, Food Recipes / 16 November 2022

Gozney’s Roccbox pizza oven gives you Neapolitan-style pizza in just 60 seconds! Try it with 5 of Franco Pizza Bar’s delicious new recipes.

Picture this… You’ve just got home from a scorching day at the beach and you’ve invited a bunch of friends over for dinner. What will you cook? It’s the perfect afternoon for alfresco dining so you set up your outdoor table, pull out your trusty Gozney Roccbox pizza oven and start prepping the dough. Friends arrive, the vino is flowing and you assemble the pizzas with simple toppings (the kind you’d find in Italy). Once the oven has reached high heat, you take out your pizzas one by one and in just 60 seconds, you have something that resembles traditional Neopolitan-style pizza for your guests to enjoy.

Gozney’s Roccbox is everything you need this summer for entertaining. It’s not only portable which means you can use it in your backyard, on the beach or camping, but it is also easy to use which is why it is loved by many home cooks and professional chefs. The patented rolling flame technology allows you to experience wood-fired flavours while cooking your pizza toppings to perfection. There’s a 19mm stone floor at the base of the oven which cooks your pizza from the bottom up giving a super crispy base. The thick layers of insulation allow the oven to reach 500°C and there’s a built-in thermometer so you never have to guess when your food is ready. The oven has a silicon jacket making it family-friendly and the retractable legs allow you to pack it up with ease for your next adventure. That’s right, Gozney thought of everything…

The ovens come in a beautiful olive or grey colour, retailing for $799 for the gas option. You can opt for accessories such as the cover, turning peel, or a Roccbox Wood Burner if you want to get a little bit fancy. Purchase your Roccbox here.
