Definition: Oven Wheel

An oven wheel, in the context of a pizza oven, refers to a rotating mechanism that is used to move and turn pizzas inside the oven for even cooking. It typically consists of a metal wheel or plate attached to the oven’s interior, allowing the pizza to be rotated easily without the need for manual intervention. This rotational motion ensures that the pizza is evenly baked, with all sides being exposed to the heat of the oven.
