Despite being commonly known for the unique, smoky tasting results and quickly cooked food, wood fired ovens offer many other benefits. One of the many unexpected benefits they offer is healthier food.
Since the oven is very hot, anything you put in will cook a lot quicker. When food is cooked quicker, nutrients are retained. The opposite is true for other cooking methods. More nutrients are extracted out when food is cooked for a longer amount of time. The increased speed of cooking is a benefit unique to wood fired ovens.
Generally, you will benefit from this advantage with fruits and vegetables. Whether you are cooking fruits or vegetables on their own or as a topping on a pizza, you will still be able to benefit from retained nutrients.
