The creator of Scugnizzonapoletano®, Giuseppe Carlo Russo Krauss, has set himself the goal of protecting and enhancing the taste of true Neapolitan pizza as it was intended: a unique piece, tailor-made by the hands of skilled craftsmen and excellent pizza chefs.
The Scugnizzo is the very first oven that cooks like a woodburning oven… without using any wood! Designed and created in Naples by Giuseppe Krauss, the oven uses only high quality materials and components to produce an oven that bakes perfect Neapolitan pizza in 60 seconds time after time. The open fronted oven is designed to be a centre piece of a pizzeria. It was created not only to give the wow factor, but to be able to cope during the busiest periods in a restaurant. It is perfect for premises where the extraction of gas or wood ovens proves expensive or problematic.
The oven operates at a constant temperature of 440-460 degrees Celsius without the need for an oven door. Perfect insulation enables the oven to offer maximum performance with minimum energy.
The very first electric oven approved by the AVPN Association!
The AVPN have been protecting True Neapolitan Pizza worldwide since 1984, and have decided that pizzerias that who have chosen the Scugnizzonapoletano can be affiliate to the Association and create true, approved Neapolitan Pizza. “In the approval of the Scugnizzonapoletano,” declares Stefano Auricchio, AVPN General Manager, “we took into account the Green change that is taking place in many countries of the world. At this moment it is even more necessary to make choices in favor of ecology and environment that are coherent with the path taken by the Association in recent years.”
