The quantifying parameter of how good a pizza oven is, is how well it cooks, and how well a wood-fired oven cooks is dependent on heat distribution in the oven and on the pizza. For the wood-fired oven, the oven is heated and the burning charcoal spread on the sides then the pizza placed on the centre of the oven to cook. Because of the round shape of the pizza, the dome shaped oven stands out as the best suited for cooking pizza. Heat is evenly distributed in the oven making the pizza cook evenly and thoroughly. It is also known as the dome oven or the igloo oven.
