Ash in the context of a pizza oven refers to the residue left behind after burning wood or other fuels, which can accumulate on the oven floor and walls. It is important to regularly clean out the ash to maintain proper airflow and prevent the build-up of unwanted flavors in the pizza.


  • “The ash from the wood gives a distinct flavor to the pizza cooked in the oven.”
  • “Make sure to clean out the ash from the previous fire before starting a new one in the pizza oven.”
