Il Faggetto 'O Sole Mio


Il Faggetto ‘O Sole Mio is the ultimate wood fuel for pizza ovens.  Designed from the ground up as the perfect wood fuel for wood fired ovens, this patented wood briquette is made from 100% dry beech, and manufactured using the latest briquetting technology. They marry together the best of tradition with science and technology. They are chemically and bacteriologically certified for the cooking of food.
