Ooni is a multi-award-winning business that was founded by husband-and-wife team Kristian Tapaninaho and Darina Garland. Before Ooni, Kristian and Darina were operating an education company with a focus on solving problems within school communities. But when Kristian became frustrated with a different kind of problem, the idea for Ooni was born.
Kristian enjoyed making pizza but was frustrated by his inability to make homemade pizzas with restaurant-quality taste. He knew that what he needed was high heat and his conventional oven wasn’t up to the job.
Kristian then set out to find a wood-fired pizza oven he could use in his backyard, but was quickly disappointed when he discovered that the only products on the market were bulky and expensive. Despite having no background in inventing, engineering, or product designing, Kristian took his idea and came up with a series of sketches and prototypes. After numerous tests in his backyard, Kristian came up with the first-ever portable wood-fired pizza oven. Thus, the incredibly fast and cost-effective wood-fired pizza oven was born.
The original Ooni was launched on Kickstarter in 2012. Since then, the company has launched numerous variations of the original Ooni Oven. There are six different Ooni pizza ovens available, including the new Ooni Karu 16 Multi-Fuel Pizza Oven.
What began as one frustrated man’s desire for a better-tasting pizza has since bloomed into one of the top pizza oven companies in the world. Ooni is the only domestic pizza oven maker certified by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (AVPN), the international authority responsible for protecting the authenticity of Neapolitan pizza.
