Online recipes for wood-fired ovens can be found on the Los Angeles Ovenworks website as well as Chef Jamie Oliver's official website, as of 2015. The recipes cover a wide range of dishes, including pizza, chicken, lobster and salads.
Los Angeles Ovenworks cautions cooks to use the right type of wood in these ovens. Dry woods, such as walnut and oak, should be used rather than pine or other resinous woods. Using the wrong wood typically generates heavy black smoke. According to Jamie Oliver, the smoke from a wood-fired oven is what gives the food its flavor, and the dry cooking environment helps vegetables and meat skins to render well.
