Italian pizza ovens come in many different types, each with their own unique features and benefits. The most common types of Italian pizza ovens include:

  1. Wood-Fired Ovens – the most traditional type of Italian pizza oven, and are still widely used today. They use wood as the fuel source, which produces a unique smoky flavour that’s hard to replicate with other types of ovens.
  2. Gas-Fired Ovens – known for their quick heat up times and consistent temperature control. They’re also easier to maintain than wood-fired ovens.
  3. Electric Ovens – the most convenient type of oven, as they’re easy to use and maintain. They do however lack the flavour that you get from a wood fired oven.

When choosing an outdoor oven, there are many factors to consider:

  1. Size – Pizza ovens come in various sizes, so it’s essential to choose one that fits your needs. If you’re only cooking for a couple of people, a smaller oven might be sufficient. However, if you’re hosting large gatherings or events, a medium to large oven would be necessary.
  2. Materials – They can be made from different materials, such as: brick, clay, and metal. Each material has its own unique characteristics, so it’s important to choose one that fits your preferences.
  3. Price – all pizza ovens vary in price, depending on the type and size. It’s essential to choose one that fits your budget without sacrificing quality.
  4. Location – Choose from built-in or freestanding ovens. Built-in ovens are permanent fixtures, while freestanding ovens are more portable and can be moved around. Consider the location where you plan to install the oven and choose the appropriate type.
