Premium Red Ventura Wood Fired Pizza Oven

When you create an amazing outdoor escape that includes the Ventura Premium Red Brick Outdoor Pizza Oven, you are magically transported across the pond! 

The Ventura Premium Red Brick Pizza Oven features a gorgeous Portuguese Red cast stone facade.  The Premium Ventura has a black NON-RUST ALUMINUM door and a high-quality ALUMINUM chimney flue.  The door has a high-heat window pane that allows you to see the food you are cooking. 

The oven makers in Portugal have been making these ovens by hand for generations, and the love, care, and skill are evident in their craftsmanship. Our Ventura brick ovens are 100% handmade and hold the original patent for their dome shape.

The Ventura brick oven is built on a 3.15-inch concrete base so you only need to build 2 strong brick walls (or concrete) with each 6 inches wide, as a base for this oven.

For a limited time, when you order the Ventura Pizza Oven, you'll also get a FREE authentic terracotta dish, great for cooking casseroles, chicken, fish, veggies and so much more in your wood-burning oven

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!

Your Sierra Ventura Will Include:

  • 500° Celsius Thermometer (0-932°F) - know when your oven is the right temperature for cooking your authentic pizzas
  • Ultrafire Patch Kit - all of the ovens by Authentic Pizza Ovens are 100% insulated with ROCKWOOL and cracking will not affect your oven. Your oven will be delivered with a special Ultrafire product patch kit to address superficial cracks that may develop. However, it is normal for authentic handmade ovens to crack, and is considered seasoned and most desired in Europe! Cracks do NOT affect the function of the oven and your pizzas will still be marvelous!
  • Rotisserie Capable - you can add a rotisserie for added cooking options (spitfire rotisserie can be purchased separately)
  • Authentic Clay Roasting Ceramic Dish - perfect for baking!

Ask a Question
  • I need to have the chimney surpass my outdoor pavilion roof line by 24inches....can more then one chimney extension be stacked

    Great question! The chimneys we carry for this oven can be stacked so you can reach your desired length. However, when penetrating through a roof, it is highly recommended that you use a double-walled chimney.

  • How tall should the vent pipe be? What is the shortest vent I can put in it?

    You don’t actually need to add a chimney for this oven. You can just use the flue that comes built on the top of the oven which is 5.5″W x 6"H flue.

    We do recommend getting just a cap to protect against moisture even if you don’t purchase a chimney. However, using a chimney will move the smoke up and away from your cooking area.

    One thing to note is that the chimney diameter of the brick ovens from Portugal are 5.5" rather than the 6" US standard. So, if you think you'll need a chimney, we recommend buying with the oven to save on shipping costs as you usually can’t find a chimney to fit locally.

  • Do you put these on a stand

    You can put the brick wood fired oven on a pizza oven cart or you can build a stand for them.  Here is a link to the pizza oven stand built for these brick ovens

  • Are the ovens sanitary grade or NSF certified?

    Our ovens from Authentic Pizza Ovens are not NSF Certified. You can find all of our NSF Cerfitifed pizza ovens here
