I'm so glad I chose this oven!

This is a great oven! It was a bit intimidating at first but it is easy to use and so much fun! We make pizza's, pretzels, flat bread and cinnamon rolls at least 3 times a week!

Very nice

Very well insulated and a good size oven for a small family. Three of us , so it's the perfect size. My only complaint is that it was not fully assembled, which was pretty difficult for folks in their mid 60's 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻We did it!! I think BBQ guys should make it better known that you need to assemble that cart and lift it. It weighs well over 300 pounds. Cooks beautifully.

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:
What's the largest pizza that can be cooked in this oven? Is 16in doable given the space needed for the wood itself?
Was This Helpful?
Answer:
Hi Luca. Depending on the fire size, the Pronto 500 can handle pizzas up to 14". It should be able to fit 16" pizzas when using the Paralegna wood holder to save space. You can find the Paralegna wood holder accessory here: bit.ly/3tH1rs4

Question:
What kind of wood do you burn in the oven
Was This Helpful?
Answer:
Hi Andrea. Seasoned and dried hardwoods are best for cooking in a wood-fired pizza oven. You can use woods like maple, oak, pecan, hickory, apple, ash, mesquite, and alder, depending on the type of flavor you'd like to add to foods.

Asked by AndreaAnswered by Ryan

Answer:
Oak. It burns hot.

When will my item arrive?

Once shipped, items usually arrive within 3-5 business days. While UPS and FedEx are our carriers for smaller items, be aware that larger items and orders are shipped via freight. The freight process is a bit more complicated than what we’ve all come to expect for small parcels, so it’s important that you’re prepared and understand what’s required of you well before delivery day.

  • Most freight products ship on a pallet
  • Some carriers will call to schedule a delivery window, while others will deliver the shipment to a reasonably accessible location closest to your residence (their goal is to deliver as near a garage door as they can).
  • We’ll specify which process you can expect in your shipping confirmation email.

For carriers that schedule delivery appointments:

Carriers that schedule delivery appointments require you to be home for delivery and provide your signature. The delivery is made with a semi-truck with lift gate services, and the shipment is dropped off at the curb. If you authorize the shipping company to leave the delivery without a signature, BBQGuys can’t be held responsible for damages that occur during delivery. As complicated as this process may seem, we’ve only scratched the surface here — please review our detailed guide to freight delivery so there are no surprises when a freight shipment heads your way.

For carriers that deliver without an appointment:

Carriers that deliver without an appointment don’t require you to be home or set up a delivery window, and you aren’t required to sign for the pallet(s). Instead of scheduling an appointment, arranging your schedule to be home for the delivery, and signing to confirm receipt, you can sit back and let your items come to you. If you’re home at the time of the drop-off, you can request the driver place your delivery in the garage; if you’re out of the house, the driver will leave it near the garage or doorstep.

30-Day Returns

Return all new, unused, and unassembled items in their original packaging, and we'll give you a full refund minus the cost of the original AND return shipping.

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.
