Pizza is a wonderful thing. You’ve got your carbs, your cheese, (most likely) your meats, and maybe even a veggie or two. For many, the way to obtain pizza is the same – call, order, and it arrives twenty minutes later. But what about those people who a) really love pizza and b) love to cook? Well, you could get a pizza stone and make it in the oven like everyone else or you could pony up a few extra dollars (or a few hundred) and get yourself a personal pizza oven.
Not only will you be able to make amazing pizzas in a fraction of the time it takes to make one in an oven, but you’ll have a badass new toy for your yard or porch to show off to all your friends. If this sounds like you, read on for our picks (across price points) for the best outdoor personal pizza ovens.
Ooni 3 Portable Pizza Oven
Made of brushed steel with ceramic fiber insulation, the Ooni 3 is a great all-purpose (and spaceship-shaped) pizza oven. With it, you’re able to get your pizza oven to a whopping 932 degrees Fahrenheit in right around 10 minutes. From there, you won’t be waiting much longer for your pizza – most cook in about 60 seconds. (You can read more about it here.)
Roccbox Pizza Oven
Made for the people who aren’t amateurs, but aren’t pros, the Roccbox is the first stone floor personal pizza oven. It heats up to over 900 degrees F and turns out a pizza in less than two minutes. With it’s eye-catching green color, it’s hard for this pizza oven to not be a centerpiece of any outdoor kitchen. Not into wood-burning? It’s got a gas hookup you can use, too.
WPPO Eco 20 Inch
A wood-fired oven, this model is great if you’re looking for a portable pizza oven, thanks to the wheeled cart that the oven sits on top of. Made with a powdered steel exterior and stainless steel grates and doors, you get function and aesthetics in one package. The WPPO reaches temperatures of up to 500 degrees F and has a damper for temp control.
Camp Chef Italia Artisan Pizza Oven
Smaller in size than some on this list, the Camp Chef Italia Artisan Pizza Oven is a gas-powered oven that delivers brick-oven quality. The Camp Chef heats up in 15 minutes and reaches up to 700 degrees F for quick cooks. A micro-adjust gas valve also allows for precise temperature control.
If you’re really looking to quadruple down on your pizza mastery (or you have a family that has around sixty people in it), then the Alfa Quattro is for you. Made in Italy, this bad boy can cook four small pizzas at a time and crank out a whopping 70 per hour.
