Took a little practice but now that I have the hang of it...
So after doing a lot of research I decided to purchase the Forno Venetzia Pronto 500 33 Inch pizza oven. First off the quality is top notch. I love the finish, all of the seams are perfect. It doesn't leak heat, sealed very well. The first time I used it I couldn't get it up to temperature. I was rather frustrated. However what I realized is once you get your fire going well and push it to the left back corner place the door where it doesn't fully seal in the opening, leave about a 1" gap on the right hand side of the door and this baby will heat up. Got it up to 800 degrees. I purchased this oven because I wanted one that could handle two pizza's at one time. First off not necessary, this will cook a 10" pizza in about 2 minutes and a 14" pizza in about 5 minutes. Secondly trying to juggle cooking two 10" pizza's at one time was not fun nor easy. Maybe with more practice I could do it. I also purchased pizza screens. So I start with my pizza's on a pizza screen for about 1 minute, then pull the screen out and finish cooking the pizza. That has helped me tremendously in being able to get a nice firm crust on the bottom and handle the pizza while it is in the oven, with turning. All in All in I am very pleased with my purchase. I have also cooked pork chops in a cast iron skillet. Forgot how fast this thing cooks and they were a little over cooked, but with practice will be fabulous. Looking forward to cooking many different items in this oven and continue cooking pizza. 14" is about as large of a pizza as will fit, with the fire inside. I prefer to cook 10" pizza's.

I love this outdoor wood fired oven!
I love this oven! I bought in late April 2020 and used all summer throughout fall before finally wrapping it up for the winter. It does take time and research to master the oven but that's why I bought it. To learn the art of real pizza and bead baking in a wood fired oven. I also discovered that I can use it for a lot of other cooking. Steaks, chicken, vegetables etc all with that wood fired flavor and heat. As well as deserts. You-tube videos and books are a must in the early stages.. they help answer a lot of questions and techniques required to get going to where you feel comfortable at what you're baking.
  • Neapolitan pizza.

The Skinny:

  • Italian design and engineering
  • Uses in-chamber fire for authentic wood-smoked taste
  • No installation or curing required

Things We Love:

Forno Venetzia pizza ovens can bring a hassle-free slice of Italy to your outdoor kitchen. The units in each series are available fully assembly and ready to use with no installation or curing required, and they consume less fuel than other pizza ovens. Forno Venetzia cart models conveniently come with a storage cabinet, spacious shelves for your wood, and four caster wheels for portability. To top it all off, these pizza ovens are capable of reaching temperatures of up to 800 degrees Fahrenheit.

Versatility to Suit Your Needs

Not every outdoor space is the same, so Forno Venetzia created three different series to meet a variety of demands. The smallest is the Pronto Series, which can fit two personal pizzas on its 24-inch-by-20-inch cooking surface. These compact and portable pizza ovens are great for smaller outdoor areas, and their name says it all — “Pronto” is the Italian word for “ready,” so you know they’re ready to cook!

Named after an Italian city famous for its architecture and food, the Torino Series lives up to its high expectations. The 32-inch-by-24-inch cooking area holds up to four pizzas at once, so these ovens can be your best friend when entertaining for a small crowd. You can even wow your guests by trying out other dishes in your pizza oven.

Bellagio Series pizza oven get their names from a village in Italy that’s known as the “Pearl of Lake Como,” so why not make them the pearl of your outdoor space? With a 36-inch-by-32-inch cooking floor, you can grill, bake, and broil in these ovens that pack the power of a complete outdoor kitchen into one versatile appliance. It’s also big enough to fit multiple dishes, including as many as five 12-inch pizzas, at the same time.

Professional Quality at Home

You don’t have to worry about quality when it comes to Forno Venetzia pizza ovens. The professionally engineered brick hearth infuses your pizza with a true brick-oven taste, and the ovens themselves are excellent at retaining heat thanks to their double-layered ceramic insulation. Only high-quality materials were used when building these pizza ovens — the cart and shelves were crafted with 304 stainless steel, while the oven interior is all 430 stainless steel.

Authentic Wood-fired Oven Gives Old-World Taste

Forno Venetzia units are equipped with outstanding materials and features, but how does their food taste? Because of their Italian construction, that’s something you don’t have to worry about! These ovens take advantage of an in-chamber fire, a common trait of authentic brick ovens. When you place food right next to the fire, the wood smoke immerses it with huge flavors to give you an outstanding pizza oven experience. Cooking pizzas in this way with the oven door open is normal, but you should try leaving the door closed when baking or roasting.

Superior Style

In additional to performing well, Forno Venetzia pizza ovens will serve as an attractive element in your outdoor kitchen. They’re available in red or copper powder-coated paint that’s as durable as it is sleek, and the oak handle on the glass front door pairs sturdiness with style. As a finishing touch, Forno Venetzia topped the chimney of its pizza ovens with a signature designer cap that ties the whole look together.

Things To Consider:

These pizza ovens are generally smaller than other models on the market. Depending on which one you choose, it may not be the best for large families or big parties. If you order a cart unit, keep in mind that the cart will require some assembly. You have to preheat your pizza oven before use, but it takes less than an hour to reach optimal temperatures.

Question:
Does the outside of the oven get very hot. I want to put this on my deck.

Answer:
Hi Joe! Yes, the outside of the oven does get hot, but not the stand itself so it still should be safe to have on your deck for use.

Question:
How long does it take to get the oven to 'cooking temperature'? How long does it take to cook a pizza @ that temperature?
Was This Helpful?
Answer:
Hi Bob. According to Forno Venetzia, you want your oven to be at 750 - 800 degrees F and the refractory brick floor of the oven to be at 650 - 750 F when you put your pizza in. It will take several minutes to reach and maintain optimal temperatures, Forno Venetzia states in their manual your should let your fire burn for at least 15 minutes once fully built and pushed to the side in order for the oven to reach temp. Once the pizza goes in, it should be done in 2-3 minutes tops.

When Will My Item Arrive?

Once shipped, items usually arrive within 3–5 business days. If your item or order is large, it may ship via one of our third-party freight carriers, which deliver from semi trucks with lift gates. Freight delivery is much more complicated than standard parcel shipping — you must schedule a drop-off time, be present for the delivery, and move items from the curb to your residence, among other differences. Sound stressful? If you prepare in advance with our guide to freight delivery, it doesn’t have to be.

We strongly encourage reading the entire freight delivery guide, but here’s a quick snapshot of what you need to be ready for when you order a large package:

  • Your freight carrier will call you to schedule a delivery window of about 4–8 hours
  • You’re required to be physically present at the specified delivery location during the scheduled window
  • Freight shipments are carried in semi trucks, which have lift gates to assist with unloading
  • Freight deliveries are dropped off at the curb and no further — not up the driveway, not the porch, not the garage, and most definitely not the backyard — so it’s on you to transport packages to their intended location
  • For an easier time hauling items to your home or backyard, arrange for at least 2 helpers to be on standby during your delivery window
  • You must sign for the shipment to indicate that you’ve accepted the delivery

Again, we recommend reading our entire breakdown of freight delivery so you can become familiar with the process. Trust us when we say that getting caught off guard with the strict requirements of freight delivery can lead to a whole lot of headaches.

No Restocking Fee

Most companies charge a restocking fee. We just don't do business that way.

Message to our customers: Like all retailers and manufacturers, we’re currently experiencing well-publicized supply-chain issues and steel shortages that have caused some orders to be delayed. We sincerely apologize for any inconveniences arising from this situation, and we assure you we’re making every effort to solve these problems with our vendors and logistical partners.

So, why are some orders being affected? Major ports around the world are still operating at reduced capacity because of COVID-19 restrictions — on average, container boats sit at port for about 3 weeks before being unloaded. Combine these shipping inefficiencies with a scarcity of natural resources, and virtually every industry has been crippled to some degree. Yet we acknowledge that it’s our duty to meet these challenges head-on and work toward solutions so you can enjoy more time outdoors with the people you love. We appreciate your patience as we strive to smooth out our supply chain, and we thank you for choosing us for your grilling and outdoor living needs.
