The Pizzaioli is ideal for cooking wood-fired pizzas with its wider opening and lower dome that conducts heat directly through the oven floor. It is one of our best selling old-world Napoli style ovens. Your Authentic Pizza Oven is the beginning of endless possibilities.
Authentic Pizza Ovens are a time-tested tradition that can transform modest ingredients into delicious meals. Cooking with fire is a forgotten art in our fast-paced gadget-filed lives. It's the pleasure derived from the sounds, smells, and sights that make these ovens so special. Nothing is older than cooking with fire and with a little practice, you can cook anything in it.

The best Napoli pizzas require a blisteringly hot oven with rolling flames- a feat accomplished in as little as 90 seconds. That, however, doesn't mean your oven can only cook at 900 degrees or nothing. A moderate fire can easily roast chicken, veggies, casseroles, or desserts in a beautiful Portuguese ceramic baking dish.
Authentic Pizza Ovens are triple insulated and handmade direct from Portugal. Each oven is crafted with a core brick layer held together with mortar and then covered with refractory cement. Thick Rockwool insulation is then applied and held in place with metal batting to further heat retention and structural integrity. A final layer of insulating refractory cement is added before a standard white finish is applied to the dome. The oven may be painted or tiled with a heat resistant paint or adhesive after curing and several firings.
The traditional Pizzaioli has a terracotta brick face and a steel door that opens down.
It is important to note that a wood-fired Authentic Pizza Oven is authentic and made by hand. Each oven is unique, and variations from oven to oven are expected. It is also normal for an Authentic Pizza Oven to form minor cracks. Most cracks will occur on the dome or façade. Small fissures are not a design flaw and will not affect day to day use. Discoloration from wood smoke is also common near the opening. Smoke stains can be wiped away as needed while subtle cracking can quickly be repaired with a patch kit. A patch kit is included with every oven if you prefer a more un-used look. Stains and cracks the mark of a well-used and well-seasoned oven.
