Pizza Briquettes are made in Croatia from pure beech sawdust. They are certified for use in cooking but are ideal for use in all normal wood-burning stoves as a main fuel.
Each briquette weighs around 1.8-1.9kg and are made on the same style press as the much-loved and missed Verdo briquettes. Their square shape means they don’t roll on the fire and they are easily broken to allow them to be used in stoves of all sizes. They will expand as they burn, so be careful to use only half at a time, and don’t overload the firebox until you know exactly how they burn on your stove. The beech sawdust gives lovely heat and flame over a long period. We really like these new briquettes – ideal for those of you who remember our Verdo and Premium Hard briquettes from a few years ago.
Great for wood-burning stoves, as well as commercial and domestic pizza ovens, these lovely hardwood briquettes produce a lot of heat with an excellent flame. They hold their shape and are versatile enough to start the fire with and to use for long main burning.
None of our briquettes contain additives or chemicals. They are made from pure, untreated wood by-product and are held together by compression alone.

Pizza Briquettes come in a cardboard box sealed with sticky tape. They must be kept in the dry, as they are not protected by plastic. Please check with your local authority for recycling facilities.
If you order a pallet of any size, the cardboard boxes will come with an outer plastic wrap, in order to protect them during transit.
Plastic is widely used for wrapping briquettes, in order to ensure that they stay dry, as a damp briquette will break up and be unsuitable for burning. The environmental impact of our products is important to us, so we are constantly working with our suppliers to improve the sustainability of their packaging by using cardboard in place of plastic wherever possible.
