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.

The ovens we sell which which are compatible with gas are the Ooni 3 and Ooni Pro (requires gas attachment), Ooni Koda, Firepod and the Clementi Family and pulcinella ranges can also be bought as a gas option.

Do I need to install my new pizza oven?

This depends upon the oven you purchase. The Ooni, Ooni Pro and Firepod all have parts that need a small amount of assembly. They 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 Igneus Classico with stand or the Clementi Pulcinella or Pizza Party, then you will have to assemble the stands. All instructions are included.

What sized pizzas can I cook?

All pizza ovens that we stock can cook one 12 inch pizza.

We also sell ovens which can cook more than one pizza at a time…

Igneus Classico: 2x pizzas

Clementi 60×60: 2x pizzas

Clementi 80×60: 4x pizzas

Clementi 100×80: 5x pizzas

Can I cook anything else in my new pizza oven?

All ovens that we stock can cook more than pizza. The size of the oven will determine what can be cooked. Here are what each oven can cook:

Pizza & small BBQ style food: 

Ooni 3


Pizza, BBQ Style Food, Roast Dinners, Breads, Casseroles and more:

Ooni Pro

Igneus Range



Clementi Range

Will I need any accessories for my new pizza oven?

We sell a range of accessories for each pizza oven brand that we stock.

The Ooni range does not come with a pizza peel. We also stock additional accessories for the Ooni pizza oven range in our shop.

The Igneus Minimo comes with a peel and rake, but you can also purchase a cover and cast iron pans for it, which are available in our shop.

The Igneus Bambino and Classico require a peel and rake to use with the ovens. These are not included with the oven price. Other accessories such as stand, cover, cast iron pans etc can also be purchased in our shop.

The Firepod comes with a pizza peel and heat-proof gloves. You will need to purchase some gas to hook up to your oven.

The Clementi Range requires a pizza peel, brush and spinner to be used. These are not included in the oven price, but are available in our shop along with other accessories such as cover, pan set, gloves etc.

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 3, 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.

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.
