It’s that wonderful time of the year again when families and friends come together to create festive memories and partake in time-old traditions. An outdoor pizza oven is a great way to create new traditions and memories with your loved ones. From cooking delicious food to making fun decorations, an outdoor pizza oven unlocks a world of opportunities for everyone to enjoy.
The Beauty of an Outdoor Pizza Oven for the Holidays
When you think of Christmas and the holiday season, some of the first things that come to mind are spending time with friends and family, eating delicious food, and decorating your home to match your festive spirit. Although somewhat unconventional, outdoor pizza ovens can offer a unique contribution to the magic of winter holiday get-togethers. Whether it’s making beautiful decorations like dried orange slices and edible ornaments or tasty treats like salted caramel candy and Christmas pizzas, using an outdoor pizza oven no longer has to be confined to warm summer months.
To get you into the outdoor-centric holiday spirit, here are some of our favorite holiday decorations and treats you can make using your own outdoor pizza oven.
Holiday Decorations and Treats with an Outdoor Pizza Oven
Salted Caramel Soft Candy
For those with an insatiable sweet tooth, soft salted caramel candy1 made in an outdoor pizza oven is the perfect Christmas treat. Not only will it prove popular with the whole family, but it will also leave your home filled with a delicious caramel aroma that oozes festive goodness when you bring it inside.
For those who enjoy the thoughtfulness of a homemade gift, turning your pizza oven salted caramel candy into bite-sized squares makes them perfect gifts. Place them in a decorative jar or wrap them in colorful wax paper and top with a ribbon for a fun, personal present that goes all-out on homemade goodness.
Christmas Pizza Wreath
To fully immerse yourself in the festive spirit, why not try making Christmas pizza wreaths?2 Better yet, turn it into a family activity where everyone gets to put together their pizza while basking in the Christmas spirit. If Christmas wreaths aren’t your thing, you could just as easily create a few Christmas tree pizzas instead.
Not only are Christmas pizzas fun to make, but they look beautiful as a holiday table centerpiece and taste absolutely delicious. By including plenty of green and red in the form of pizza sauce, green peppers, or even pesto as pizza toppings, you can make your Christmas pizzas all the more fun, festive, and on-theme.
Dried Orange Christmas Decorations
If you’ve grown tired of some of the standard decorations for tables and presents, consider changing things up this year by using dried orange slices3 made in your outdoor pizza oven. They’re simple and cost-effective and can be used in a variety of ways, from ornaments and present decor to teas and chocolate-dipped treats.
Edible Baked Christmas Decorations
Soft, mouthwatering, and buttery? Shortbread lovers will agree that this treat is one for all occasions. Shortbread sugar cookies4 are simple enough to make, so why not put a spin on the standard recipe by crafting them into Christmas cookie tree ornaments? For a personal touch, use a letter stencil to add the initials of loved ones or add bright, decorative icing.
