An infrared thermometer is a device used in a pizza oven to measure and monitor the temperature by detecting and measuring the infrared radiation emitted by the hot surfaces within the oven. It provides a fast and accurate temperature reading without the need for direct contact with the surface being measured, ensuring precise control of the oven temperature for optimal cooking results.
