Hand Built ovens - Wood fired pizza

 

fundi. n. person skilled in maintaining or making specialised equipment. [Swahili] fundo n. - anatomic nomenclature for bottom i.e. crust [Italian]... Fundi Pizza, wood powered pizza made with hand-built equipment

Brothers Charlie and Rory Nelson built their own wood-fired pizza oven from scratch and hit the streets making Neapolitan style pizzas in 2012. Rory is a bushcraft survivalist, expert in shelter building, fire making, foraging and outdoor cookery.

Charlie’s food background includes the running of restaurant at an eco-lodge in Mozambique where there was no running water or electricity, which taught him the art of wood-fired cooking. They believe that cooking with fire is primal, natural and has a big place in both their hearts.

FUNDI OVENS

LET US BUILD YOU THE PERFECT OVEN

When we started Fundi we needed the perfect oven to make the perfect pizza. Nothing we found fitted the bill in terms of portability, size, heat retention and aesthetics. So we built our own. Fundi ovens are bespoke pieces of specialist cooking kit. 

Fundi ovens can be bought for domestic or commercial use and will be finished and decorated to your specifications. Tiled mosaics can also be personalised. 

Its not just pizzas that can be cooked in a Fundi oven, think of it as an extension of your kitchen. Whole suckling pigs, slow roast joints, bread, grilled fish and sautéed veg can all be cooked to perfection.
