We know because we've been in business long enough to hear from customers years after they've made their first pizza oven purchase. When it comes to pizza ovens, there is a big difference between brick ovens that are handcrafted in Portugal and those that are assembled in a factory.
We can't share our expertise about this particular brick oven in 15 seconds but, if you have 2 minutes, keep reading...
Brick ovens that are handmade in Portugal are made using traditional brick-making techniques. The bricks used to build the ovens are carefully selected and kiln-fired to create a durable and long-lasting product. The brick ovens assembled in factories, on the other hand, are often made from brick that is mass-produced in a more industrial setting.
While brick ovens assembled in factories may be less expensive, they are not necessarily of the same quality as brick ovens made by hand. When it comes to cooking pizzas, brick ovens made by hand in Portugal offer a superior cooking experience. The bricks used to build these ovens absorb heat evenly, providing a consistent cooking surface.
The traditional brick-making techniques used to construct brick ovens also allow for better airflow, resulting in pizzas that are cooked evenly with a crispy crust. When it comes to pizza, there is simply no substitute for a brick oven handcrafted by a master craftsman.
The Buena Ventura Preto is an incredibly high-quality brick oven that has been handcrafted in Portugal using traditional brick-making techniques. Featuring a beautiful charcoal-colored cast stone facade, this brick oven is the perfect choice for anyone who loves to cook.
The high-heat window pane on the pull-down door allows you to keep an eye on your food as it cooks, and the unique dome shape of the brick oven provides intense heat that is perfect for baking everything from pizzas and bread to meats and other savory dishes. Additionally, the overall design of this brick oven ensures that there are no cold spots, guaranteeing even cooking throughout every part of the oven.
Whether you're looking for a reliable brick oven for your restaurant or just want to enjoy great home-cooked meals with your family, the Buena Ventura is sure to impress!

The design of the traditional Portuguese Buena Ventura brick oven means there are no cold areas because bricks heat inside the oven at every possible angle.
Note: As these ovens are handmade, no two are exactly the same - the dimensions may not be exact but are close.
Productivity: 30 pizzas per hour. Cooks pizza’s in 60-90 seconds and has the capacity to cook two 12″ pizzas at a time. The oven uses approximately 4-6 lbs of hardwood per hour depending on the moisture and wood type.
All Authentic Pizza Ovens brick ovens are made with steel eyelets in each corner for hoisting into place. These can be easily cut off after it's put into position.
All our ovens REQUIRE "all-weather" protection from rain, snow, sleet, and fallen leaves, and protection from harsh elements when not in use. If you don't have a cover, you can purchase one of our brick pizza oven covers that will fit snugly over your brick oven and secure with a pull tie. You are investing in a beautiful oven that is meant to last for a very long time, so please take care of it.
Some areas of the base of the oven may appear to be chipped when you first receive it but do not worry because it is perfectly normal. It is not damaged. The base is designed to protect the oven itself especially while in transit. The chipped part can easily be painted using the Ultrafire Repair Kit once the oven has been placed in position and it will look good as new!

We love our new Buena Ventura Brick Wood Fired Pizza Oven! The Patio & Pizza order, shipping and delivery process was seamless. From the time the order was placed it took about 10 days for the oven to make its way to Arizona, which gave us time to finalize the crane that set it in place. Our pizzas have been awesome, steaks are phenomenal and the fresh-made breads are so good!

Customer service is fantastic, I’ve had many questions and inquiries and all the responses have been quick and informative. I feel like I’ve joined a club.
Regarding the pizza oven, I’m at week 5 and have been primarily focused on pizzas, it’s definitely an art and science, Ive burnt several, tried different flours (00 is the best) and have used YouTube and the pizza bible as my teachers.
Beyond pizzas, I’ve done a few crisps, salmon, and veggies and they’ve all turned out amazing. The key is good ingredients and patience. Oh I almost forgot, my pretzels turned out amazing!

Do you have any drawings, diagrams or measurements for how to build the Buena Ventura Black into an outdoor garden wall ? I'm currently in the planning stages for an outdoor walled garden and need to know how to integrate it into the wall. Thank you!

Here is an article we've written about building using an outdoor pizza oven kit which may also contain helpful information: https://www.patioandpizza.com/blogs/resources/building-diy-pizza-oven-kit
Is this the same as the Brazza Premium Pizza Oven
The Buena Ventura oven is very similar to the Brazza brick oven. Both are handmade by the same craftsmen in Portugal and both have the same premium door and flue system. The main difference is their front face arches. They are slightly different in appearance so it just depends on which style you like for your backyard pizza oven.
I am interested to purchase the Buena Ventura Black PREMIUM Brick Wood Fired Pizza Oven What are your suggestion about adding a chimney and cap?
The chimney and cap are not really necessary but most of our customers would consider adding these accessories to make their cooking experience a lot more enjoyable. Without the chimney, the smoke from your oven will escape through the flue and will make your cooking area smokey. The chimney will help bring all the smoke up and farther away from your face and your cooking area. A cap will protect anything from getting inside your chimney.
