Types of Pizza Oven
Traditional Wood-Fired Pizza Oven
When done right, Traditional Wood-Fired Pizza Ovens can deliver the most authentic-tasting pizzas.
Rustic, crispy, smokey pizzas can be created using a wood fired oven – just like ‘a-mama used to make’.
Gas-Fired Pizza Oven
The ultimate in convenience and reliability – pizza oven pizzas at the turn of a button.
From clay, to masonry, gas fired pizza ovens come in different styles.
Electric Pizza Oven
Reliable and great for full temperature-control, electric pizza ovens are great for commercial applications in particular.
Deck Pizza Oven
Great for a large home kitchen or commercial setting – deck pizza ovens are normally ceramic and can turn-out pizzas in quick succession.
Conveyor Pizza Oven
Reliable and great for large-scale production such as a busy commercial environment – you can almost guarantee colour and cooking time with a conveyor pizza oven.
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
- 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
- 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
- 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
- Mostly restricted to gas or wood-fired models
- Restricted by the weather
