An introduction to The Bread Stone Ovens Co. 

Four Grand-Mere offers traditional wood-fired brick ovens. They have been in business for over 40 years. Their team of artisans builds wood-fired ovens with hand-laid, true refractory brick, using only the highest quality natural materials.

Because of the low dome design of the ovens they are ideal for pizza and bread baking. You can make pizza in the evening and the oven will retain enough heat to make fresh bread in the morning. 

Not only are our wood-fired brick ovens are ideal for making pizza. They are also great for bread, pies, roasts, stews, grilled dishes, smoked meats, and much more. We are located in the Dallas, Texas area and we have the ability to ship our products all over the world.

Antoine and Lee will be working side by side in this wood fired oven pizza making class!
