Planning Your Outdoor Living Space? Consider This:

Poolside Pizza Ovens

From Ask the Pool Guy

When you are thinking about the design of your outdoor living space, there are many options that are available to you.  Whether you are thinking about adding an outdoor kitchen, swimming pool and hot tub, water features, outdoor bar and entertainment system, etc., the list is virtually endless.  Seemingly anything that can be outfitted for a room inside can be made for the outdoor living area.  One item, as this post from Ask the Pool Guy explains, is not as obvious, but no less spectacular.  There are many reasons to include a Pizza Oven in your outdoor living area, as it allows for versatility with recipies and experimentation.  Additionally, have you ever met a kid that doesn’t love pizza?

Here is an excerpt from the post:

We had to ask, though: why a pizza oven? This is a considerable investment for something that only makes one type of food. So we asked them why they wanted a pizza oven as part of their backyard experience. Do they just love pizza? Did they come across one while travelling? Did they see one on a cool homes show? Their answer made us even more excited about the opportunity to do this for them. “In short, we are ‘foodies’. We enjoy cooking a lot and really enjoy making awesome recipes ourselves. Erica has always make homemade pizza and one day she bought a pizza stone to try. It worked well and since then we have been pizza perfecters. We have tried dozens of dough recipes to achieve crusty but chewy pizza crust, make our own sauce from garden tomatoes, make cheese and grow tons of basil and really just want to take the making to the next level. We have had a number of family holidays with personal pizzas as the main course and everyone loves it. We envision a ton of kids swimming all day and then enjoying a great pizza party at night. Of course Dad and Mom will have a ball making them enjoying a few beers… 😉 It just seems like a cool addition to the backyard space.”

How cool is that? Pizza is a part of their lives, and now they will be able to achieve the next step in pizza perfection. Nothing beats a fresh, homemade, brick-oven pizza. Add that to a tried and tested homemade crust recipe, homemade sauce, and a long day of sun and swimming, and you’ve got an A+ pizza on your hands (or, preferably, in your mouth)! And, for us, the best part is the personal touch that this element adds. This pizza oven represents a piece of who they are as a family, and we love to be able to incorporate things like that in a pool area.
