There are various factors which can affect the appearance of the flame in your Ooni Koda. This can include ambient factors and weather conditions such as wind. The reason your flame varies in colour may even be down to something as simple as the flames interaction with the Flame Safety Device (FSD) on right backside of Ooni Koda. This will not affect the performance of your Ooni Koda.

Many Ooni owners prefer not to clean their Stone and allow the high Ooni temperatures to burn off any excess food.

If you need to you can scrape off any excess with a spatula or your Ooni Peel. If your Ooni Stone requires cleaning, we would advise trying to turn your stone over and cooking on the other side – you should find that the high heat will clean the stone for you.

The stone baking board in Ooni Koda may change colour but this will not affect performance. Excess food can be left to burn off under the high temperatures inside Ooni Koda. Cleaning and care instructions for the stone baking board can be found here.

It’s happened to the best of us, but follow these tips and you’ll never suffer the heartbreak of losing a pizza again:

  • Your peel, dough and toppings should all be at room temperature. Dough is easier to stretch and slide off the peel at room temperature. If you are cold proving your dough, leave it at room temperature for at least 5 hours before beginning to stretch.

  • Ensure the dough that you are using isn’t too wet. You can do this by adding a generous sprinkling of flour to the dough and peel before beginning you stretch. Remember to follow the Classic Pizza Dough recipe on page 15 for best results.

  • Check that there are no holes in the dough before adding sauce and as the sauce can create a ‘glue’ effect between the dough and the peel.

  • Before adding your toppings, lightly shake your peel to ensure that the dough is moving freely.If not’ pick up the dough and add more flour to the peel.

  • Do not leave your dough on the peel for a long time before cooking.

  • If the dough has become stuck to the peel, lift it at one side and give a gentle blow of air underneath: This will create a ‘hovercraft’ effect and your pizza should glide more easily from peel to stone.
