Key Features To Look For In Wood Fired Pizza Ovens

Making the decision to add a wood pizza oven to your patio, deck, or outdoor kitchen is an exceptional choice. These ovens are extremely versatile and can be used for cooking virtually anything that can be made in a traditional oven.

When selecting wood fired pizza ovens, there are a few important factors to keep in mind. The top ovens are designed to last for a lifetime of outdoor cooking.

Style of Pizza Oven

Different manufacturers create different styles of wood fired pizza ovens. Typically, these ovens have a dome shape for the actual oven. They can be designed for the countertop or sold on a stainless steel cart with casters to make it easy to move.

The design and style should also make it easy to monitor the temperature and to safely open and close the oven door. Many of the top pizza ovens come with carts that offer space for wood storage and oven utensils and tools.

Oven Size and Capacity Wood Fired Pizza Ovens

There are different sizes of wood fired pizza ovens. Smaller ovens take up less countertop or patio space, but they also have less cooking capacity. For people who entertain or have larger families, choosing a large capacity pizza oven provides the option to cook more than one thing in the oven at a time.


Check the quality of the materials that make up the oven. Look for stainless steel construction, the level of insulation for the oven, and if the oven is powder coated to help prevent damage. Ideally, the oven should have an insulated brick floor to assist in heat retention and even cooking.

  • Gave this as a Christmas gift. I asked for delivery on the day after Christmas and they made sure that they delivered even though they couldn't get a delivery service to delivery. They actually delivered it themselves. When I had some components that were missing, they hand delivered them on a Sunday. Cannot say enough about the great customer service. Love the pizza oven too. Fun to use and made great pizza!

Gets nice a hot and makes pizza in under two minutes and keeps the heat going. He helped us every step of the way helping us decide which oven to purchase.
