Best Outdoor Pizza Ovens TechnoBuffalo 2020
For the true pizza enthusiast, an outdoor pizza oven is an investment that will keep you happy for years to come. Being outdoors means the oven can get hot enough to cook a pizza in 60 seconds to 6 minutes, while also preventing your house from becoming too warm. We've gathered a list of the best outdoor pizza ovens so you can toss aside those mediocre frozen and delivery pizzas and get the charred crust of your dreams.
- Budget friendly: Pizzacraft PC6500 PizzaQue
- More heat: Pizzacraft PC6000 Pizzeria Pronto
- Keeps warm: Cuisinart CPO-600 Alfrescamore
- Go green: Ooni 3 Outdoor
- Any heat type: Napoli Bertello Wood Fire and Gas
Hook this pizza oven up to a propane tank, and you'll reach approximately 600F in 15 minutes. With a six-minute cook time, that means you could enjoy a pizza in 21 minutes -- which is probably faster than your local pizza place can deliver. If you want to make this oven stand on its own, there is a leg kit you can purchase separately.
Like the Pizzaque, this model runs on propane, except it can reach 700F in 10 minutes, which you can check on the built-in thermometer. To make sure you get the perfect pie, the hollow pizza stone prevents hot spots, while the top vent keeps your crust from becoming soggy. You can enjoy your food in as little as 5 minutes.
With a name that translates to "for the love of the outside," this gas-operated pizza oven is ready for your next tailgating party or backyard bash. Pizzas will be ready in 5 minutes, and you can remove them with the included 12" pizza peel. There's also a warming tray if you're not serving all of it at once.
The sustainably sourced wood pellets that this model runs on can reach temperatures up to 932F. That's high enough to cook a pizza in 60 seconds. But you don't have to stop at pizza, other dishes with veggies, fish, and meats will also cook nicely in this oven.
Enjoy a variety of cooking methods with support for wood, wood pellets, charcoal, and an optional gas burner attachment that is sold separately. The 12.5" by 13.5" cooking area can reach 930F, which means you can cook pizzas in a flash. Plus, it's lightweight enough that you can bring it to someone else's party -- which is likely to secure future invites.
Having an outdoor gathering is always better with food. If you're going to make a lot of pizzas, then you'll want a dedicated and reliable pizza oven. That's why we recommend the Pizzacraft PC6500 PizzaQue. While this model reaches the lowest temperature in our selection, and takes 15 minutes to heat up, it still performs well above its price tag. Your pizzas will be ready in 6 minutes, and you won't have to worry about soggy crusts because of the vent at the top.
However, if you want to shave a minute off your cooking time and 5 minutes off your warm-up time, then spend some extra dough on the Pizzacraft PC6000 Pizzeria Pronto. It has all the features of our top pick, but it can reach 700F in just 10 minutes. Now, who's ready for some pizza?
