Heats up quick, runs on the same propane tank that's already hooked up to my grill, and once it's ready, pizzas are done in literally 5 minutes.
The crusts come out super crispy and the toppings aren't soggy like you sometimes get in your indoor oven due to moisture content in the ingredients. You do have to rotate the pizza halfway through to make sure it is browning evenly, but since the whole process only takes 5 minutes, you really don't want to walk away while it's cooking anyway.
The oven doesn't get overly hot on the outside so you don't have to worry about scorching your table. Love the compact size, which makes it easier to store than a full-size grill and you could even take it camping or tailgating easily with a smaller size propane tank and the adaptor.
This is also a much better price than most outdoor ovens which can range in the thousands - of dollars and pounds! Highly recommend for even the amateur pizza chef
I'm so glad I tried this, at this price point, I can't believe how well it works. It made our pizzas perfectly in about five to six minutes. Hot, bubbly, crispy and no mushy parts. All I had to do was preheat and turn the pizza halfway through. That was it, so easy.
Very happy with this purchase
Using the included dough recipe (a ridiculously simple Tipo 00 with an overnight rise in the fridge), I got some amazing results. Perfect hint of char on the bottom, perfect blisters on top, and as even of a cook as I ever got out of my stove. The crust had a crisp crunch and a perfect chew, and held the toppings of all four pizzas I made the first night very well. The wife and kids (and the neighbor who stopped by) all agreed it was the absolute best they'd had.
As far as the equipment, it assembled quickly and easily - 10 minutes plus another 5 to set it up outside and check the hose connections for leaks (I'm a safety freak). I was amazed at how little ambient heat radiated from the bottom of the unit - I wouldn't worry at all about having this on a outdoor patio table. It took about 20 minutes to reach 625 or 650 on the thermometer, and I baked 4 10 to 12 inch pizzas in rather rapid succession with no degradation in quality.
I'm looking forward to experimenting with this over the coming months (including during the cold winter months, when I worry about how it will maintain heat even when used in the garage) ... but so far, so good. This is looking like one of the best birthday presents I've ever received
The only thing you have to watch for is the wind blowing out the flame - I made my husband stand in front of it to block it - but that would happen with any gas run item
The first night we used it, we had a intimate family dinner of about 20 (BIG Family!) and WOW what amazing results. Every single pizza was crispy and perfectly cooked with just one turn during the cooking process. The temperature and cook time stayed even throughout the evening's cooking, and we got a restaurant quality pizza every single time. Needless to say, the whole family loved it!
I highly recommend this product to anyone that is looking for that restaurant quality pizza but doesn't want the hassle or cost of going to a restaurant. It's so easy, and the pizza is so good, there's no need to go out anymore
The oven heats evenly and the build quality is above average for the price. We've used it 4 times so far for a total of 8 pizzas and absolutely love it.
It cooks the dough perfectly, with one turn during the process, and gets the toppings evenly crispy.
It's easy to use, after you figure out how to slide raw pizza dough off a peel.
The oven is very simple to put together, and it hooks up to propane tank just like a BBQ grill. Starting it up is a snap, and it gets to full heat in about 10 minutes or so. Mine didn't quite get to 700 degrees, but it got plenty close enough to make an amazingly crisp crust.
You'll definitely need a pizza peel to work with this over because 1) there's no other way to really get the pizza in an out of the over and 2) you'll look really cool with it anyway. :-)
I found that it's necessary to rotate the pizza once or twice while cooking to ensure an even browning around the crust.
I'm really excited to keep experimenting with all sorts of different toppings now that I'm an official pizza man
I've been making pizza on the grill over 10 years and when you want to make 6-8 pizza's for your friends it is a big hassle to partially cook the dough on one side, flip the dough and partially cook in on the other side to bring it back to the table to add the toppings and then put it back on the grill to melt the cheese.
I have my own dough recipe that has been very successful and continue to use. If you are fermenting your dough (recommended) in the refrigerator (up to 3 days prior to use) make sure you take it out and bring it to room temperature for the best results.
Like others we have found that less is more. My assistant put way too much toppings on a few pies and it was a struggle to cook them properly.....
I purchased a steel pizza peel for turning and removing the pies. I happen to think the steel is more effective on the way out because it is thinner.
In the 3 weeks we have been using the outdoor oven, we have made at least 18-20 pizzas and additionally we have also have been very successful making calzone and stromboli.
Now I can't make pizzas fast enough!
We loved it and it was easy to get the perfect pizzas every time...but it's a real oven, so you have to pay attention to the cooking of your pizza.
Getting a little dark at night now so I kinda wish there was a little light inside???
Looking forward to trying some new toppings this weekend.
Absolutely love this thing...and so does my family
There is a learning curve with the pizza stone etc, but even with a not perfect pizza, it’s better than anything we’ve made at home before.
Questions & Answers
Can I hook it to a natural gas source? We have a natural gas connector for our outdoor grill and I would like to use the same fuel source.
THE HIGH COOKING TEMPERATURE IS AN AMATEUR CHEFS DREAM
Could you was a pouch made of aluminum foil with some wood chips in it with hole punched on top on stone to get a smokey flavor in this pizza maker?
what should the stone temputure be for cooking a thin crust pizza?
do you demo this pizza cooker in your store?
You must have natural gas on you barbeque. So you need to buy a small propane tank to hook up this little fellow!!! Then he will work for you!! Enjoy! Cheers Trish
I am using the Peter Reinhardt recipes and cooking pizza on my Weber with a pizza stone. It takes about 5 - 6 at 550 600 with all three burners on high. Will this product do better and be an improvement?
First, we love this little gadget works quite nicely.
You are able to buy a sturdy cover for the over for about $30. Should be all you need.
As to cooking in the winter, I would not know since we live in the desert. It does get quite hot with proper warm up though and the opening for the pizza is somewhat small. I would bet it would work fine.
Also a point of note, it does not suck down propane. Fairly efficient.
Can the top cone be removed to use the top of the Stone plate - to place a flat bottomed Wok on it for high heat cooking? What else can this oven be safely used for? Thank you
