The (not so) secret ingredient behind Ireland's favourite pizzas

1 of 10

“After 2 weeks using the logs for me its really been a game changer.

The consistency of the heat produced and the flames makes my job so much easier. Before I had to poke at the fire all the time to make sure I could keep the right temp, as some the timber wasn’t dry enough or the logs sizes were irregular.

I don’t have these issues anymore as soon as the temp starts dropping a little I throw in a new log and I'm good to go for 45min without having to worry about anything but the pizzas.

I've noticed as well that with a constant temperature my pizzas come out beautifully 100% of the time.

“More consistent than anything I’ve tried before.”

I tried a lot of suppliers before I discovered these and they’re more consistent than anything I’ve tried before. The size is perfect for controlling the heat and it’s much easier to get a higher flame. You can even break them into smaller pieces if you need to get the oven fired up quickly.
