Takeaways

  • You don’t have to be a professional chef to make authentic, stone-baked pizza with the help of a reliable wood-fired pizza oven.
  • There is a wood-fired pizza oven to fit every budget – from a couple of hundred dollars to several thousand dollars.
  • All wood-fired pizza ovens should be used outdoors only.
  • There are countertop models designed to be super convenient as larger ovens mounted on carts to maintain portability.
  • Many of the ovens on our list are currently or frequently out of stock due to high demand.

Best Real Wood: Ooni Karu Multi-Fuel Pizza Oven

The Karu is another popular portable pizza oven from Ooni. Unlike the Fyra, the Karu is a multi-fuel pizza oven that can be fueled with wood or charcoal right out of the box, or with the Ooni Gas Burner that can be purchased separately. 

The ceramic fiber-insulated stainless-steel body, extra-thick baking stone, and patented flame keeper effectively retain heat, even as you move pizzas in and out of the oven. The custom fuel tray can be loaded with wood or charcoal and the searing flame leaves little to no ash to clean up. 

Like the Ooni Fyr, the Karu was designed to be portable. Its conveniently-sized body and foldable legs make both storage and transport easier. Check out our full Ooni Karu review here.

Good 👍

  • Authentic wood-fired flavor – The Ooni Karu 12 is fueled by wood pellets that give your pizza an authentic wood-fired taste that you can typically only find in a restaurant. 
  • Speed – Not only does the Ooni Karu 12 preheat quickly, but it can cook a fresh 12-inch pizza in just 1-2 minutes. 

Bad 👎

  • Temperature control – Because the Ooni Karu 12 is fueled by wood pellets, it can be difficult to control and maintain the temperature inside the oven. With a bit of practice, it gets easier, but there is a learning curve for new users.

Best Portable: Ooni Fyra Wood Pellet Pizza Oven

The Ooni Fyra is an immensely popular portable pizza oven that makes it easy to bake authentic wood-fired pizza at home. The Fyra uses wood pellets as its fuel source and can comfortably accommodate pizzas up to 12 inches in diameter.

The Fyra was not only designed to be portable, but easy to set up and use. The cordierite baking stone is placed inside the double-insulated, powder-coated carbon steel dome. The dome is supported by three short legs that can be folded down and the oven door can be removed. Once you add the wood pellets, they are fed by gravity through the hopper so you don’t have to worry about keeping the fire going. 

Temperatures inside the Fyra can reach 950 degrees F (500 degrees C), which is plenty hot enough to cook a 12-inch pizza in just 60 seconds. 

One of the most common complaints about the Ooni Fyra is that it doesn’t come with a peel, despite one being almost essential to using the oven effectively. You can purchase a pizza peel separately, which is highly recommended, so that you can easily transfer for your pizza and turn it while it cooks.

Good 👍

  • Excellent value – For $299, you get a high-quality, wood-fired pizza oven by one of the most popular names in the industry. This oven is loaded with impressive features, including the ability to reach 950 degrees Fahrenheit in just 15 minutes. 
  • Portability – The Ooni Fyra 12 is super portable, weighing just 22 pounds, with legs that fold under to save even more room. 

Bad 👎

  • No built-in thermometer – You won’t find a built-in thermometer on the Ooni Fyra 12. You’ll need to purchase a separate thermometer to measure the internal temperature, such as the Ooni Infrared Thermometer.

Best Design: Gozney Dome Wood-Fired Pizza Oven

The Gozney Dome is the newest home pizza oven available on the market. It was designed to make wood-fired cooking simple for anyone and boasts a list of capabilities including roasting, slow roasting, steaming, smoking, cold smoking, and baking. 

The Dome can reach temperatures of up to 950 degrees F just by turning a dial. The digital thermometer provides precise temperature reading and the built-in temperature probes make it easy to know when your food is done. 

The Gozney Dome is available as a wood-fueled only oven, as well as a dual-fuel oven that can be used with wood or gas. The dual-fuel models cost $1,799 and include an integrated gas burner and regulator, ignition flame and regulation dial, and a stone floor puck to switch between wood and gas, in addition to the items included with the wood-fueled model.

The Gozney Dome can be used all year round thanks to the durable, water resistant, and UV stable ceramic bonded outer coating. Check out our full Gozney Dome Pizza Oven review here.

Note: Due to exceptionally high demand from the Priority Pre-Sale for the Gozney Dome, the Dome is currently unavailable for purchase. Because of long lead times, Gozney chose to stop accepting new order until further notice. If you want to be a part of the next Dome drop, you can sign up for updates on the company’s website.

Good 👍

  • Overall design – The Gozney Dome is a professional-grade outdoor oven that was designed to perform flawlessly for beginners and professionals alike. It fits conveniently on a standard outdoor kitchen counter top without requiring a large amount of space and has a cooking surface large enough to fit a 16-inch pizza.

Bad 👎

  • Availability – Gozney had to put a temporary hold on sales of the Gozney Dome because of exceptional demand from their Priority Pre-Sale. This means that until further notice, the Gozney Dome is unavailable to anyone who wasn’t able to take part in the pre-sale and there hasn’t been any information released on when more Dome ovens will become available.

Best Stationary: Ooni Pro 16 Multi-Fuel Pizza Oven

A conversation about the best wood-fired pizza ovens wouldn’t be complete without the Ooni Pro. The Ooni Pro is a popular choice for beginners and professionals alike due to its ease of use and impressive performance. 

The Ooni Pro reaches temperatures of 950 degrees F (500 degrees C) in just 20 minutes and can cook flavorful stone-baked pizza in as little as 60 seconds. The cooking surface can accommodate 16-inch pizzas and is great for roasting meats, baking bread, and so much more. 

Note: The Ooni Pro 16 is a high-demand item that is currently sold out. According to a May 7, 2021 press release on the Ooni website, a substantial number of Ooni products are onboard the Ever Given, the container ship that blocked the Suez Canal for almost a week in March.

Check out our extensive Ooni Pro review here.

“As progress with the ship itself has stalled, we are now looking at alternative options. Those whose ovens are onboard the Ever Given are first in the queue and it is our highest priority to get your order to you. Please be assured that no additional Ooni Pro 16 ovens have been sold or will be fulfilled until we have a solution for you.” – Kevin and the Ooni Team.

Good 👍

  • Cooking flexibility – With the Ooni Pro, you can choose between five fuel sources: charcoal and wood, charcoal only, wood only, wood pellets, and gas. This means you can decide not only what you want to cook, but how you want to cook it. 
  • Heats quickly – Ooni promises that its Pro oven will preheat in just 20 minutes. Multiple tests have proven this to be accurate, which means the Ooni Pro gets hot fast. 

Bad 👎

  • Uneven baking – The back of the Ooni Pro tends to get significantly hotter than the front of the oven, since the fuel source is located at the back. To make sure your pizza cooks evenly and to avoid burning, you will need to rotate your pizza frequently as it bakes.

Best Small Size: Bertello Outdoor Pizza Oven

If the name Bertello doesn’t sound familiar to you, maybe Napoli will. The original brand name for this pizza oven was Napoli until it was changed to Bertello in December 2019. Napoli, now Bertello, took off after appearing on Shark Tank. But it was the Kickstarter campaign in 2017 that paved the way for Bertello to become one of the hottest-selling pizza ovens on Amazon. 

The one truly unique feature of the Bertello Outdoor Pizza Oven is the ability to cook with wood and propane at the same time. Doing so gives you both the ease of cooking with gas and the flavor of cooking with pizza. 

The most common complaint about the Bertello Outdoor Pizza Oven is that the size of the opening makes it difficult to maneuver the pizza as it cooks. Because of the uneven heat distribution inside the oven, turning your pizza is essential to prevent burning. If you make your pizza just an inch or two smaller and it will be much easier to work with.

Good 👍

  • Portable – The Bertello’s lightweight and compact design make it easy to transport. You won’t have to worry about this pizza oven taking up too much room in your outdoor kitchen and if you prefer to store it when you’re not using it, it’s one of the easier pizza ovens to stow away.
  • Easy to Use – Regardless of which fuel you decide to cook with, the Bertello is a great pizza oven for beginners with little to no experience with pizza ovens because of its simple design.

Bad 👎

  • Cooking Surface Size – The Bertello Outdoor Pizza Oven is small and lightweight, which makes transporting it easier. Unfortunately, the smaller cooking surface means you can’t bake more than one pizza at a time and you’ll likely have a hard time maneuvering your pizza while it bakes. Turning your pizza is important for an even bake, but there isn’t a lot of room to do so.

Best Professional: Delivita Wood Fired Oven

The Delivita portable pizza oven was inspired by traditional style ovens but boasts the features of a modern pizza oven. This impressive pizza oven weighs only 67 pounds and is portable so that you can enjoy homemade wood-fired pizza wherever you go. 

With temperatures reaching a maximum of 950 degrees F (500 degrees C), the Delivita can cook a fresh, authentic pizza in just 90 seconds. Despite reaching extreme temperatures inside the oven, the Delivita has insulating heatproof handles and oven base so that the oven can be placed anywhere that is sturdy enough to hold it. 

The Delivita Wood Fired Oven has a fiberglass exterior shell that protects you from the scalding temperatures and allows you to place the oven on any sturdy surface while cooking – wood, plastic, concrete, or stone. There are six color options available: Blue Diamond, Hale Grey, Olive Green, Chilli Red, Orange Blaze, and Very Black.

Good 👍

  • Restaurant-quality results – Regardless of what type of pizza you cook, you’ll discover that the Delivita produces flavorful flame-cooked pizzas that are hard to find outside of a restaurant. 
  • Portable – For such a high-quality pizza oven, the Delivita is surprisingly portable. It weighs 67 pounds, so it might take two people to move it, but it is conveniently sized so that taking this oven on the go isn’t too much of a hassle. 

Bad 👎

  • Price – For a pizza oven with the capacity to cook just one 12-inch pizza at a time, the Delivita is an expensive option. 
  • Requires 5 hours to cure – Before you can use the Delivita Wood Fired Oven for the first time, you will need to light a fire inside the oven and let the embers burn for five hours to “kiln” the clay.

Best Countertop: Belforno Piccolo Wood-Fired Pizza Oven

The Piccolo Countertop Wood-Fired Pizza Oven by Belforno is a powerful wood-fired pizza oven with a unique design that allows it to cook pizza on both sides. This oven was engineered to redistribute the flame along the roof of the cooking chamber so that your toppings are cooked to perfection while your crust is impressively crispy and flavorful. 

The Piccolo Countertop Wood-Fired Pizza Oven is available in six colors: Pistachio, Linen, Sky, Black, Red, and Copper. 

The Belforno Piccolo Countertop Wood-Fired Pizza Oven has a 24 x 24” cooking surface that is large enough for two 10-inch pizzas or one 16-inch pizza. The cooking floor is comprised of 1-inch-thick, 12 x 6” compressed refractory tiles.

Good 👍

  • Unique design – The multiple color options give the Belforno Piccolo Countertop pizza oven a unique flair that is a nice touch in an industry that tends to lack a variety of colors.  
  • Thick floor tiles produce a crispier crust – The oven floor of the Belforno Piccolo features 1-inch-thick compressed refractory tiles that effectively absorb and retain heat. Thanks to these tiles, in no time at all, raw dough is transformed into a crispy, crunchy crust. 

Bad 👎

  • Lower maximum temperature – The Belforno Piccolo Countertop Wood-Fired Pizza Oven has a maximum temperature of 750 degrees Fahrenheit (400 degrees Celsius) which means it can’t get as hot as other wood-fired pizza ovens on our list.

Commercial Pro Oven: Alfa ONE Wood Fired Pizza

The Alfa ONE Wood Fired Pizza Oven is a portable pizza oven marketed as “the Italian oven for everyone.” 

The Alfa ONE is a compact, relatively lightweight portable pizza oven that takes just five minutes to assemble. It is capable of reaching a maximum temperature of 950 degrees F (500 degrees C), but it reaches a more ideal cooking temperature of 750 degrees F in just 10 minutes. With the fire burning that hot, the Alfa ONE cooks a 10- to 12-inch pizza in 90 seconds. 

From the moment the Alfa ONE Wood-Fired Pizza Oven arrives at your door, you can have fresh-baked pizza on the table and ready to eat in under 30 minutes.

Good 👍

  • Cooks quickly and evenly – A fresh pizza 10-inch pizza takes just 60-90 seconds to bake, thanks to the intentional design of the Alfa ONE pizza oven. The dome ceiling allows heat to flow freely at the top and then radiate downward. There are four fire bricks on the floor of the oven that are about a half-inch thick. These bricks absorb and retain heat and are responsible for cooking the pizza’s crust. Just be sure to turn the pizza a few times as it bakes to avoid direct contact with the flames on the side of the oven. 

Bad 👎

  • Takes some practice – It might take some practice getting used to cooking with the Alfa ONE before you feel completely comfortable with it. You have to manually position the wood basket as the fire gets going to ensure the oven can properly preheat. Once preheated, you will then have to add wood about every 15 minutes to maintain the temperature inside the oven.

Best Under $2500: Alfa 5 Minuti Pizza Oven

The Alfa 5 Minuti Countertop Wood-Fired Pizza Oven is conveniently-sized yet powerful, with the ability to cook two pizzas in 90 seconds. This Italian-crafted oven features a removable door, large cooking surface, and gorgeous copper finish. 

The cooking surface is made up of interchangeable terracotta refractory bricks. The dome is insulated with ceramic fiber to retain heat and the stainless-steel door has an ergonomically-designed handle. 

When you buy the Alfa 5 Minuti Countertop Wood Pizza Oven, the oven arrives at your door already cured. Simply insert the chimney, place it on any durable outdoor cooking surface, and fire it up. For about $600 more, you can purchase a free-standing version that includes a cart.

Good 👍

  • Durable, high-quality construction – The Alfa 5 Minuti is made with stainless steel and ceramic fiber, which means it is built to withstand regular use, even at the maximum temperature. 
  • Pyrometer provides accurate temperature monitoring – The Alfa 5 Minuti comes is installed with a pyrometer inside that measures the temperature in the combustion chamber. 

Bad 👎

  • Preheat time is longer than claimed – According to the product description on the Alfa website, the 5 Minuti takes just 15 minutes to preheat. Unfortunately, this claim is misleading. In 15 minutes, the Alfa 5 Minuti heats to cooking temperature, but for the high heat you want to bake an authentic full-flavor pizza, you’ll need to wait at closer to 45 minutes so that the cooking stones have enough time to heat up.

Unique Design: Alfa Allegro Outdoor Wood-Fired Pizza Oven

The 39-inch Alfa Allegro is sold as a countertop pizza oven only, a pizza oven with a base and locking casters, and a freestanding version with attached legs. For the purpose of this guide, we looked at the countertop version, which is the largest wood-fired pizza in the Allegro series.

With the included pyrometer you can easily monitor the temperature of the chamber. The ergonomic draught control handles make it easy to control the temperature of the fire. The operating range of this pizza oven allows you to cook everything from fire baked pizza to slow-smoked meats.

Affordable: WPPO Le Peppe Portable Wood Fired Pizza Oven

Among the more affordable outdoor wood-fired ovens is the WPPO Le Peppe Portable Wood Fired Pizza Oven. This conveniently-sized outdoor pizza oven is the only portable pizza oven to use a down draft air system. It is the top-selling pizza oven built by WPPO. 

The Le Peppe’s down draft air system is designed to circulate air through the oven too cook food evenly. Temperatures inside the oven can reach 900 degrees F but the Le Peppe runs most efficiently at around 650 degrees F.  

To fuel the oven, you can use wood chunks, lump coal, charcoal, and wood pellets. The chute makes it easy to add more fuel to the fire as needed. 

The Le Peppe pizza oven has a cooking surface large enough to accommodate a 12-inch pizza, but customers have shared that a 9- to 10-inch pizza is much easier to work with. The 11mm cordierite baking stone floor provides optimal heat retention.

Good 👍

Biggest Outdoor Oven: Bella Ultra Wood Fired Oven

The Bella Ultra Outdoor Wood Fired Oven features a high-grade ceramic cooking floor, 2-inch thick, 100-percent ceramic insulation, ceramic firebrick baking stones, and 304 stainless steel construction. 

The cooking surface of the Bella Ultra Outdoor Wood Fired Oven is massive: 40 x 28 inches of high-grade ceramic that can accommodate as many as six 12-inch pizzas at the same time. 

For optimal heat retention, the oven’s dome is lined with two inches of insulation, with another two inches of insulation situated underneath the refractory brick ceramic floor. The ceramic bricks heat quickly and retain heat well, so you don’t have to worry about losing heat when you swap out pizzas. And with the stainless-steel front shelf landing, you can easily swap one pizza for the next when you have many pies to bake.

Good 👍

  • Great for entertaining – The Bella Ultra wood-fired oven has a 40-inch x 28-inch cooking surface that can accommodate up to six 12-inch pizzas at a time. Despite its large cooking floor, the Bella Ultra only takes 15 minutes to heat up and is capable of baking up to 100 pizzas in one hour, so you can feed more people in less time. 

Bad 👎

Amazing Design: Nuke Pizzero Wood Fired Pizza Oven

The Nuke Pizzero Wood Fired Pizza Oven is a more portable yet professional-looking home pizza oven that Nuke claims will serve as “the centerpiece for the fire-worshipping foodie.” 

The dual-insulated dome and refractory ceramic floor can accommodate up to a 19-inch pizza or two 12-inch pizzas simultaneously. The cooking chamber has a removable fire tray that allows you to move the wood as needed, depending on where inside the oven you want the most heat. With the analog thermometer you can keep a close eye on the temperatures inside the oven.  

The Nuke Pizzero Wood Fired Pizza Oven sits atop a powder coated steel cart that has two side shelves for additional space. With two hide-away wheels, you can easily move the pizza oven, and then hide the wheels for a more elegant appearance. 

Despite its many impressive features, the Nuke Pizzero Wood Fired Pizza Oven has a max temperature of only 700 degrees. While still impressive, it misses the 950-degree mark that many similar wood-fired pizza ovens provide.

Good 👍

  • Construction – The Nuke Pizzero is made with 304- and 430-grade stainless steel which ensures that it will hold up to regular use and last for a long time. 
  • Steel cart included – If you’re worried about having an open surface on which you can put your new outdoor pizza oven, the Nuke Pizzero Wood Fired Pizza Oven solves that problem for you. It comes with a black powder-coated steel cart with two side shelves. The cart has 2 hide-away wheels so that you can move the oven as needed, then hide the wheels for a more seamless look.

Bad 👎

  • Temperate range – The Nuke Pizzero Wood Fired Pizza Oven is limited to a maximum temperature of 700 degrees Fahrenheit (370 degrees Celsius). That’s still plenty hot enough to make great pizza, but several hundred degrees below the maximum temperatures of other top-rated at-home pizza ovens.

The Tuscan Chef GX-C2 Deluxe Family Outdoor Wood-Fired Pizza Oven is designed for outdoor cooking for your family or entertaining hungry guests. Its artisan, turn-of-the-century design features 6mm of solid stainless steel with an additional 1mm stainless steel wrap and heat-resistant paint.

The Tuscan Chef GX-C2 Deluxe Family Outdoor Wood-Fired Pizza Oven has two chambers: the bottom chamber is for the fire and the upper chamber is where your food cooks. 

The oven arrives at your doorstep 95% assembled, but the oven has to be cured before you use it for the first time. You should use only seasoned hardwood with this oven.

Good 👍

  • Two chambers for food and wood – The Tuscan Chef GX-C2 has two separate chambers, one for food and one for food, that make it easy to add wood without interrupting the cooking process. 
  • Comes 95 percent assembled – Setup is easy with the Tuscan Chef GX-C2, as it comes 95 percent assembled. Within minutes you can finish assembling your new pizza oven and start the preheating process. 

Bad 👎

  • Expensive – At $2,899.00, the Tuscan Chef GX-C2 is an expensive outdoor wood-fired pizza oven.
  • Preheat time – It takes the Tuscan Chef GX-C2 40 minutes to reach 950 degrees Fahrenheit (510 degrees C), which is significantly longer than it takes for most other similar pizza ovens to heat up.

Authentic Maximus Arena Mobile Pizza Oven

The Maximus Arena Mobile Pizza Oven by Authentic is a powerful wood-fired oven that is portable enough to take on the go. It weighs 130 pounds and can fit in the trunk of most vehicles, but is large enough to bake two 10-inch pizzas at the same time. The oven floor bricks are removable, making the Maximus Arena pizza oven even easier to transport.  

This powerful pizza oven is capable of heating to 1000 degrees F and can cook fresh pizzas in under two minutes. The Maximus Arena features a dropped ceiling inside the oven that directs heat from the back of the oven to the front with a front ceiling opening to pull smoke out and through the chimney. This design allows the oven to use convection cooking and maintain hotter temperatures for longer. 

The oven door is removable so that you can leave it off when baking pizza or attach it when cooking low and slow. The Maximus Arena Mobile Pizza Oven can be used to bake bread or to cook chicken, fish, and more. The included thermometer makes it easy to monitor the heat inside your oven so you know exactly how long your food needs to cook.

Good 👍

  • Productivity – If you are cooking for a crowd, the Authentic Maximus Arena Mobile Pizza Oven is up to the task. It can cook as many as 30 pizzas per hour, with each pizza ready in just 60-90 seconds and a cooking surface large enough for two 10-inch pizzas. 

Bad 👎

  • Can produce a lot of smoke – Depending on the type of wood you use the Authentic Maximus tends to produce a lot of smoke. For less smoke, it is recommended that you use hardwoods such as oak, walnut, apple, maple, or mesquite.

Maximus Prime Pizza Oven

If you like the sound of the Maximus Arena Mobile Pizza Oven but want to go even bigger, the Maximus Prime is the “big brother” to the Arena oven. At 300 pounds, it’s significantly heavier but it’s still portable enough to use in any outdoor kitchen, wherever you go. The oven’s countertop design gives you the flexibility to decide where you want to place it, saving you from the hassle of custom installation. 

The unique barrel shape of this countertop pizza oven allows heat to rise and then circle around the back and roof to the front of the oven. Unlike most countertop pizza ovens, this one has a second layer above the main cooking area that funnels the heat and smoke from the front of the oven back to the back, then out through the chimney. This results in a more authentic wood-fired taste. 

The exterior aluminum wall of the Maximus Prime Pizza Oven comes in red or black and is designed to resist oxidation and corrosion. The 304-2B stainless steel double wall contains a high temperature ceramic blanket for optimal heat retention, while ensuring the outside of the oven stays cool. 

Note: The Maximus Prime Pizza Oven is currently on backorder. Because there are limited quantities available and a high demand for this product, it is recommended that you place an order as soon as possible. Orders will be fulfilled as shipments arrive from Portugal.

Good 👍

  • Huge cooking surface – The cooking surface of the Maximus Prime lives up to the product’s name. The cooking surface is 35” x 35” which means you can cook up to four 12-inch pizzas at one time. 
  • Several accessories included – When you purchase the Maximus Prime Pizza Oven, you will also receive a ceramic Portuguese baking dish, retractable pizza peel, thermometer, and more. 

Bad 👎

  • Heat-up time – The Maximus Prime pizza oven takes 30-45 minutes to heat up, which is longer than other pizza ovens on our list. The preheat time is also longer than that of a conventional oven, but the Maximus Prime reaches much higher temperatures. Still, it’s one of the longer preheat times of the wood-fired ovens in our guide. 
  • Bulky – The Maximus Prime pizza oven is not a small appliance. It weighs 300 pounds and is significantly larger than other pizza ovens on our list. You will need to find a designated area in your outdoor kitchen to place this oven and keep it there, because moving it is inconvenient and difficult.

ilFornino Roma Series Mini Stainless Steel Countertop Wood Burning Pizza Oven

The ilFornino Roma Series Mini Wood Burning Pizza Oven is a premium countertop model made from 14-gauge stainless steel with a black powder coat finish. The oven features six inches of ceramic fiber blanket insulation to effectively retain heat while ensuring the outside of the oven stays cool to the touch. 

This small but mighty countertop wood-fired pizza oven uses a passive directional venting system that allows the hot air to travel to the back of the oven and then toward the front inside a second chamber, before allowing the exhaust to escape through the chimney mounted at the front of the oven. This venting system provides more efficient heating and better heat retention. 

It takes 20-25 minutes for this countertop oven to reach optimal cooking temperature. The 400-square-inch cooking surface provides enough room for two 10-inch pizzas that can be cooked to perfection in just 90 seconds.

Good 👍

  • Arrives ready to use – Many professional-style pizza ovens, countertop models included, require some type of set up or break-in period before they can be used for the first time. The ilFornino Roma Mini Wood Fired Pizza Oven arrives ready to use right out of the box with an in-depth manual that helps you get started. 
  • Stays hot for up to 8 hours – The thermal mass of the ilFornino Roma Mini Wood Fired Pizza Oven can retain heat at 750+ degrees Fahrenheit for up to eight hours with an occasional chimney damper adjustment. 

Bad 👎

  • Heavy – The ilFornino Roma Mini Wood Fired Pizza Oven is a countertop pizza oven so it needs to be placed on a sturdy surface to use. But because it weighs 180 pounds, you will need to make sure you use a surface that can hold up to the weight over an extended period of time. Plus, you’ll likely want to avoid having to move this oven once it’s set up.
