Indoor Pizza Oven vs Outdoor Pizza Oven

So you’ve decided you want to invest in a pizza oven – but what would suit you best? An indoor or an outdoor oven?

Here’s the pros and cons of each so you can decide for yourself:

Indoor Pizza Oven

Pros:

  • All-year round pizzas!
  • Wide range of options from wood, to gas, to electric, to deck, to conveyor ovens
  • Great focal-point for the kitchen
  • Convenience of chopping/preparing and also cooking in the kitchen

Cons:

  • Requires proper ventilation and insulation systems and is typically more costly to install than an outdoor oven
  • If the oven is built into a wall, it can make maintenance and repairs difficult when compared to a standalone outdoor oven

Outdoor Pizza Oven

Pros:

  • Great for Summer get-togethers
  • Provides a heat-source in itself, so additional heat from patio heaters may not be necessary when sat outdoors
  • Relatively cheap to buy, and possibility of building your own pizza oven
  • Generally easy access for maintenance/repair if necessary
  • Great garden focal-point

Cons:

  • Mostly restricted to gas or wood-fired models
  • Restricted by the weather
