In the context of a pizza oven, the term “hearth” refers to the floor of the oven where the pizza is placed for cooking. It is usually made of a heat-retaining material like ceramic or firebricks to ensure even cooking and crispy crust.


  • “The hearth of a pizza oven is where the pizzas are cooked directly on the hot surface.”
