Traditional cooking with refractory materials is a time-tested method. Simply put, food tastes better and is healthier. By combining tradition with technology, Alfa Refrattari has ensured that all the science of the modern times is matched with classic designs and traditional cooking methods. Tradition is a guarantee.
Alfa ovens are designed with a high round dome capable of retaining large amounts of heat within the oven. Inside the Alfa oven, fire moves towards the dome unobstructed and heat is reflected back towards the oven floor. All the areas of the oven are thus heated uniformly and the oven can reach high temperatures and maintain them for the duration of the night. The refractory oven floor is capable of maintaining the high temperatures needed to give the pizza the right about of cooking once it is placed on the oven floor.
Alfa oven floors are composed of high temperature resistant refractory bricks. The refractory clay used to produce these bricks is pure, just as it is found in nature, and ensures even cooking and distribution of heat across the over floor. The tiled cooking floor allows for easy substitution of parts that have been worn down after thousands of pizza peels have passed over them and tons of wood has been burned.
Our traditional refractory mix has been guaranteeing client satisfaction for over thirty years with maximum strength and maximum heat retention. The fire clay is used exactly as it is found in nature and guarantees a result that has withstood the test of time.
Thanks to our spacious and well-designed oven mouths, baking has never been so easy. We created space for convenience without renouncing beauty and function. Both the oven mouth of the Pizza al Metro and the Special Pizzeria have been tested by a generation of pizzaioli.
Our dome is designed to reflect heat. Imagine that the top of the dome is the sun and the earth that the oven floor. When the oven is lit the high oven dome is heated in such a way that the oven floor becomes 4 times hotter than it would be otherwise. For this reason the pizza in the oven cooks evenly from below as well as from above.
