Cooking with Tulikivi

Love to cook

Owing to its excellent baking properties a Tulikivi bake oven will slowly cook your pies and pastries, turning them into real treats. These baked goods will absorb a wonderful wood-burning oven aroma.

When the oven is initially very hot it can be used for baking – for example unleavened rieska bread and Karelian pastries or even for browning meat. If the oven seems too hot you can open the flue and oven door for a while. When the oven has cooled down a bit it can be used for preparing foods and baking pastries that require lower temperatures. The remaining heat can be used for stewing dishes that require longer cooking times. Through practice you will learn how to use your oven to the best advantage

Classic pizza

Ingredients for the base:
300g strong white bread flour
1 tsp instant yeast
Pinch salt
150ml olive oil

Ingredients for the tomato sauce:
500ml passata
2 cloves crushed garlic
Fresh herbs

To make the base: Put the flour, yeast, and salt into a large bowl. Add 200ml lukewarm water and the olive oil and mix to make a soft dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 3-5 minutes. Return to the bowl, cover with a tea towel, and leave to rise in a warm place for 1 hour. After the dough has risen, cut the dough into several lumps (depending on how large you would like your base) and roll thinly.
