Things We Love:
Alfa has made its mark in the pizza oven industry by offering one of the largest assortments of models, including a refined and powerful Pro Series. These pizza ovens need less than an hour to reach their pre-heat temperature, meaning you can decide to fire them up on a whim or simply spend more time with people you love while cooking. Perhaps most importantly, Alfa pizza ovens come ready to use and don’t require curing, which can often be an exhausting process spanning multiple days.
Made with the Latest Forninox Technology
Pairing cutting-edge innovation with traditional cooking methods allowed Alfa to develop its patented Forninox technology that helps the oven withstand stresses brought on by high temperatures. Despite using properties of modern steel, Alfa stayed true to old-world cooking on brick when designing these pizza ovens, combining old and new as smoothly as pepperoni and cheese. Forninox technology also lets you to reach your desired temperature using less fuel.
Special Shape Retains Heat
Forninox technology isn’t the only design feature meant to enhance Alfa pizza ovens —their dome shape maintains temperature inside the oven and helps cook food evenly while also providing a classic look. Alfa also installed a refractory cement cooking floor to aid in the baking process, and ceramic fiber insulation traps heat within the oven even as you use it. With these design elements in mind, you can be confident your Alfa pizza oven will see you through every cook session.
Wood-fired Oven Gives an Authentic Taste
These pizza ovens don’t sacrifice taste for technology. In fact, Alfa built these models specifically to give you the best wood-fired flavor possible. Your food is placed next to the fire in the oven so you’ll get to enjoy that traditional smoky taste with every meal. If you’re not into pizza or simply want to use your Alfa oven for something more, don’t worry — it’s versatile enough to handle many different dishes and infuse them all with the essence of Italy.
Pro Series for Professional Use
For the professional pizza-makers out there, Alfa created a Pro Series featuring three collections of large ovens. Though these models are built for heavy-duty cooking, they boast a lightweight and artistic design that doesn’t require professional installation. Alfa Pro Series pizza ovens, which are intended for countertop installation, need just 15 minutes to reach optimal cooking temperature.
The Alfa Opera pizza oven is the most powerful model, capable of producing 150 pizzas per hour and fitting seven at a time on its 47-inch cooking surface. Alfa Quick pizza ovens, meanwhile, have the same cooking area but with a slightly decreased rate of six pizzas at once and 110 per hour. For smaller workloads, the 35-inch cooking surface of an Alfa Quattro pizza oven Alfa Quattro pizza oven is a perfect option. They have room for four small pizzas or three large pizzas at a time, can crank out about 70 per hour, and are even available with a matching base.
Cupolino Available as Built-in Model
Alfa even offers a built-in oven that can add an Italian flair to your outdoor kitchen. The Alfa Cupolino pizza oven has an easy-to-install, two-piece hearth and can cook two pizzas at once with its brick-fire cooking surface that’s 23 inches in diameter. While this built-in oven is a great tool for adding wood-fired flavor to any dish, we recommend gathering the family for pizza night and getting everybody in on the fun of crafting homemade pizza!
Things To Consider:
Though the Alfa Pro Series is rated for indoor use, you’ll need to attach a separately sold flue for proper ventilation. These pizza ovens don’t come with any accessories, but an optional Alfa pizza peel set is available. Alfa does, however, carry other accessories such as covers and carts that can help you get the most out of your pizza oven.
