We are moving to a new neighborhood, and we are so excited. Our new home is near a lovely lake with walking and bicycling paths. There's also a beach. And then there are waterfalls (below). And delicious restaurants. And parks. So we are giddy.
We want to start off on a good note with our new neighbors, and we thought a backyard pizza party might be a fun way to do so. We have been researching ways to build our own backyard woodfire pizza oven, since store-bought ones (plus shipping) can be waaaay out of our price range. Then we happened upon this little gem - the Uuni. Or at least, we hope it's a gem, because we plan to pre-order the latest model.
I can't endorse it because I haven't tried it yet, but I am excited to order it.
I love the back story. It was created by a guy who really really loves pizza. He perfected crust and sauce recipes, but felt his pizza needed the woodfired flavor to really shine.
So what do smart, creative, pizza lovers with a dream do? They go to Kickstarter. And thus, Uuni was born.
We got really pumped when we watched the inventor demonstrate it in the video below.
While we wait for the Uuni to arrive, we are on a recipe-gathering-and-testing mission. We will soon report back with our findings.
Then, it's party time.
