Pizza Oven Expert Reviews

Outdoor residential pizza ovens are a fairly new concept. Not too long ago, you would either order a pizza from a restaurant or bake one in your oven, but having a dedicated pizza oven in your outdoor kitchen is now a growing trend. Because residential pizza ovens are so new, I have had many people asking me what they should be looking for when trying to buy one, and how to make sure that the one they have chosen is a quality oven. Based on the volume of emails that I have received recently, I felt that it may be helpful to review our most popular brands, and share with you the pros and cons of each one.
