A brand new fuel for wood fired pizza ovens which burns longer, hotter and cleaner than traditional firewood, is now available nationwide.


Pizazz is an eco-friendly fuel made in the UK from 100% renewable Sweet Chestnut wood.

As a clean alternative to firewood, Pizazz briquettes have a 0.5 per cent ash residue, which means less mess after burning and a low moisture content allowing them to produce a significantly higher level of heat without splintering or breaking during use.

Unlike similar products in the market, Pizazz briquettes are made in the UK from sawdust and chip from British forests. No additives are used in the process.

Hadrian’s Pizza, a mobile wood-fired pizza company based in Newcastle Upon Tyne, trialled the Pizazz briquettes. Hadrian’s caters outdoor events, parties, weddings all over the north of England and southern Scotland.

Owner Dan Stephenson shared his thoughts:

“Having a UK supplier of the product appealed to us and we found at our first event using the Pizazz briquettes that they burned hotter and for longer than hardwood firewood we have traditionally used.

“This extra heat meant we were able to cook pizzas much faster which really helped us keep up with demand. We also found Pizazz briquettes were significantly cleaner than other products, which meant clearing up at the end of a shift was a lot easier and faster.

“The pizzas we made using these briquettes were cooked perfectly in ninety seconds and came out with a lovely crisp crust. The smell whilst burning this fuel was also distinctly sweeter and less overpowering than others we’ve used, which was appreciated by our customers.”

Each Pizazz briquette is 30cm long and supplied in 14kg boxes, with a delivery lead time of just three days in mainland UK.

Eve Johnson, Sales and Marketing Director, said: “Wood burning pizza ovens have experienced a huge upsurge in popularity over the past few years. Whether it’s for use in a restaurant or at an event, Pizazz offers a top of the range fuel source that’s clean, long-lasting and safe without compromising on heat levels. As well as all these performance benefits, buyers can enjoy using the product knowing that it’s made from 100% renewable home-grown timber.”

Pizazz briquettes are available from BSW Energy.
