Other Things to Cook in the Gozney

cooking in the Gozney

You got a Gozney for the pizza, of course. But man can’t live on pizza alone (trust us, we have tried). And after you have tested those limits, you might start to wonder–what else is there? Turns out this pizza oven is a really versatile cooking tool! And you can cook so many things in there. Here are a few other things to try in your Gozney:

Brussels Sprouts
Green beans
New potatoes
Shishito peppers

*Note: the Dome is better suited to slow-cooking or baking in larger pans (don’t forget to attach the steam injector and rope-sealed door). 

What We Made in the Roccbox

We chose these three things to cook in the Gozney Roccbox: some veggie kabobs, a salmon filet, and a pizookie just to see if we could. They all came out perfectly!

roasted veggies

For the veggies we cooked them on a little 1/4 sized baking sheet. You don’t want to use a lot of oil in your Gozney or things start to catch on fire. So go easy on the oil and big on the seasonings and cheese. You can also just zap the veggies really quick and then drizzle them with oil and sprinkle with parmesan as soon as they come out of the oven.

salmon filet

Next up, the salmon was an interesting experiment, because we weren’t sure how the cedar plank would hold up. But the people at Gozney assured us it would work. Before getting started it is important to make sure you have the right sized plank for your oven and your filet (you don’t want a board that is too long). Presoak the board 6-8 hours. Then you are ready to place the fish on the board and set the temperature on the Roccbox to 700℉. Once the oven is preheated, cook the salmon, using the peel to rotate the plank. Cook in the Gozney until the fish is about 125℉.

cookie skillet

Last, but not least, the pizookie skillet. The cookie in a cast-iron skillet is a classic dessert and perfection for the Roccbox. Use your favorite dough or find our chocolate chip cookie recipe here. Set the pizza oven to the lowest setting to get it around 570℉. Press the cookie dough into the bottom of the skillet and put it in the oven. Bake about 3 minutes until done (rotating if necessary). Serve with a scoop of ice cream and enjoy!

Tips for Cooking in the Gozney

Now, before you dive into making the list of things that are NOT pizza in your oven, there are some important tips to remember about cooking with a Gozney.

1. The Gozney Gets Hot

Really hot! Even on the lowest setting, the Roccbox can easily get up to 500℉–essentially the hottest setting on your oven. Also, the closer your food gets to the flame, the hotter the temperature. Things cook fast. And running back into the house to grab something could ruin your meal. 

2. Water and Stone Don’t Mix

This is so important! Just like with a regular pizza stone, you do not want too much moisture to come in direct contact with the stone in your Gozney oven. It is fine for crusts and flatbreads to cook directly on the stone. But meat, fish, and vegetables (with a higher water content) need to cook in a pan. 

3. Mind your Pots and Pans

You want to be thoughtful of the pots and pans you use in your Gozney. Cast iron is the safest bet because of the high heat. In the Roccbox, the biggest you can fit is probably a 10” cast iron skillet. Carbon steel is another option that can hold up in higher temperatures. *The Dome has a larger opening and is better suited if you want to try your hand at slow-cooking or baking in larger pans (don’t forget to attach the steam injector and rope-sealed door).
