Outdoor Pizza OvensWood burning ovens for the backyard
Find the right pizza oven for your outdoor kitchen. Choose from wood-fired or gas pizza ovens.
In recent years, pizza ovens have become a popular option for cooking outdoors. A pizza oven is wood-fired, making it a very authentic style of cooking. Don't let the name fool you; all sorts of food, from fish to dessert, can be cooked in a pizza oven. Pizza ovens are especially good for roasting meats and vegetables.
An outdoor pizza oven is a great option for cooks that don't want to be stuck behind a grill. Simply put your food in, set a timer and enjoy your company. However, it can prove difficult to cook for a crowd using a pizza oven and sometimes they can take two hours or more to heat up. For these reasons, many homeowners opt for both a pizza oven and a traditional grill in their outdoor kitchen.
There are a number of companies out there that specialize in pizza ovens. You can purchase an oven kit that will allow you, or your contractor, to install and build a fully custom enclosure for your oven. Pizza ovens can be built as free standing units, or incorporated into an outdoor kitchen design.
