When buying a pizza oven, you are bound to have some questions you need answers to. Naturally we are happy to try and answer any questions you have, however here are a few of the most frequent pizza oven related questions we get asked…


Are your pizza ovens wood-fired?

It’s a fact that wood-fired pizza ovens always deliver the very best tasting pizzas, however gas is very convenient and cooks a very good pizza quickly. Most of our ovens are available as wood fired ovens, however some use gas or wood pellets.

These brands are compatible with gas: Ooni, Clementi and Gozney.

Do I need to install my new pizza oven?

This depends upon the oven you purchase. The Ooni Range needs a small amount of assembly and all come with instructions to help you out.

The Igneus Range takes a few minutes to assemble (placing the bricks into the oven and slotting the chimney on top). You will also need to give the Igneus pizza ovens a blind firing before cooking. The blind firing instructions are included with your oven.

If you purchased the Gozney Dome with stand, Igneus Classico with stand or the Clementi Pulcinella or Pizza Party, then you will have to assemble the stands. All instructions are included.

If you plan on leaving your pizza oven outside all year, we recommend you purchase a cover.

How do I maintain my new pizza oven?

To clean your pizza oven, make sure the fire has completely gone out and the oven is fully cooled down.

With the Ooni Range, you simply remove and empty the tray at the back of the oven. Then use washing up liquid and a sponge to clean the outside of the oven.

To clean the Igneus, Delivita and Clementi Range of ovens, use a rake/ brush to remove the embers from the cooking area. To clean the outside of the oven simply use washing up liquid and a sponge. Please note that you should never wet the firebricks or stone oven floor as it makes them weaken.

Do not use water when cleaning the Igneus Ceramiko range of pizza ovens.

If you plan on leaving your pizza oven outdoors all year, we recommend you purchase a cover for the oven. Only use the cover once the pizza oven has fully cooled down.
