800PIZZA's ardent passion and wish to share a taste of real Italian cuisine with people in this part of the globe is indeed a huge SUCCESS. With new branches opening, 800PIZZA has proven its excellence in the food industry and has surely built a brand recognized by many as the leading name in Traditional and Authentic Italian Food.
The origin of the wood-fired stone oven is lost in time but leads us back to the origin of bread when the only way to bake was by means of a wood-fired oven.
The wood-fired oven provides the food with a wholesome aroma that cannot be achieved with other types of cooking; it creates a unique and wonderful flavor through the open flame of the burning wood, the intense heat it generates, and the direct contact between dough product and the stones. Note that nowadays many ovens are manufactured with a base of stones but they are powered electrically or by gas, this will accumulate heat mainly in the top of the oven (cooking the food from the top) on the other hand, thanks to the burning charcoals, a wood-fired oven will transmit a powerful heat in the stone
floor itself baking the pizza from the bottom also, that's why the bottom of our baked Pizza has dark areas (there where the dough was more in contact with the hot stone base).
Our oven has been flown in to Dubai directly from Italy where it was hand crafted.

With 800PIZZA now being considered by many to be the finest Italian Restaurant in the UAE, you wouldn't really believe how small it was when it all started. Mr. Alessandro D'Ubaldo, the mind and soul behind 800PIZZA, had been living in Dubai since 1999, and in 2006, he started working on a PIZZERIA project due to his passion for traditional and authentic Italian food.
