WP Bakery Group USA loaned a Matador Store 6.8.4 for the pizza competitions at the Pizza Pavilion sponsored by PMQ Magazine.
Pizza shop owners were invited to compete for best pizza using three ovens: Our WP Haton Matador Store Electric Stone Hearth Oven, a Peerless Deck Oven and an Italforni Tunnel Oven.
Salvatore of Mirabella Old World Pizza, Greenville, NC prefers the Matador Store oven of the three ovens in the competition. “The color of the crust” is one of the reasons he prefers the Matador store oven. For his thin crust pizza it was the best performing oven.
The Matador decks were set up at different temperatures for the competition – 500°, 550°, 600°, and 650 – to accommodate the needs of the competitors.
Our WP HATON MATADOR STORE ELECTRIC STONE HEARTH DECK OVEN is one GORGEOUS piece of baking equipment, if we do say so ourselves. Never mind drooling over the pizza it bakes to mouth-watering perfection. You’ll drool over the oven itself… with its stainless steel body and handles, energy saving glass panes, and a lighted baking chamber that allows you – and your customers – to watch as dough and sauce and cheese become pizza.
