Hot New Pizza Oven Fuel Launches

A brand new fuel for wood fired pizza ovens which burns longer, hotter and cleaner than traditional firewood is now available nationwide. Pizazz is an eco-friendly fuel made in the UK from 100% renewable Sweet Chestnut wood.

As a clean alternative to firewood, Pizazz briquettes have a 0.5 per cent ash residue which means less mess after burning and a low moisture content allowing them to produce a significantly higher level of heat without splintering or breaking during use.
