What makes the Maximus Oven so great?

High Rankings

This oven is a customer favorite and has been ranked in the Top 5 Best Home Pizza Ovens due to its lightweight and quick heating design.   The Maximus Arena portable pizza oven is fast with a super quick 20-minute heat up time. 

Once fired up, you can cook your pizzas in 2 minutes!  That means you'll be enjoying pizza, fish, roasts, loaves of bread, and lots of other dishes in record time!

Superior Design

The Maximus Oven has a dropped ceiling inside the oven which directs the fire/heat from the back of the oven to the front of the oven. Then the smoke goes up through the front ceiling opening and back to the chimney.  This design sends the heat over your food which allows for convection cooking and the oven to stay hotter longer! 

Functional yet Portable

The Maximus Arena is perfect for small gatherings on the patio.  But, you can also use the Maximus Arena outdoor wood-fired oven to:

  • tailgate at your favorite sports game
  • camp without leaving all the luxuries at home
  • cook the best wood-fired meals in your own backyard
  • light up your backyard when used as a fire feature!

The Maximus wood-fired oven is perfect for baking homemade pizza!

You'll have a crowd flock to you when you are grilling all of the following in your Maximus Arena Portable Pizza Oven:

  • pizzas
  • bread loaves
  • steaks
  • burgers
  • cast-iron skillet meals
  • desserts
  • and so much more!

In fact, you’ll start inventing recipes you’ll want to use it so much!

Authentic Pizza Ovens Spit/Rotisserie for MAXIMUMS ARENA


Curing your new Maximus Arena pizza oven


IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO USE THIS OVEN FOR A FOOD TRUCK OR TRAILER, IT MUST BE MODIFIED IN ORDER TO HANDLE THE CONSTANT MOVEMENT AND VIBRATIONS. YOUR VEHICLE MUST HAVE SATISFACTORY SUSPENSION AND THE FACE OF THE OVEN MUST BE SECURED WITH ADDED BOLTS FROM THE DOME INTO THE FACE. WE HAVE AN INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO WHICH WE CAN PROVIDE. THIS IS AN AFTER PURCHASE MODIFICATION. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGES IF NOT PROPERLY MODIFIED.

Much less expensive than a pizza trailer and, at only 130 lbs,  light enough to move around - even fits in the back of most cars. It's even lighter if you remove the floor bricks during transport!

If the Maximus model is too small, take a look at the bigger Prime Oven version.

We aren’t kidding when we say we do more than sell pizza ovens - we constantly cook in them! We cook in a larger version of this oven every week and absolutely love it.  Give your grill a break and bring wood-fired cooking into the rotation.

The Maximus pizza oven REQUIRES "all-weather" protection from rain, snow, sleet, etc. when not in use. If you don't have a cover, you can purchase the Maximus pizza oven cover that will fit snugly over your oven and secures 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.

Absolutely love our Maximus

This is our first pizza oven, so we weren’t sure what to expect. We’ve done several pizzas and cedar plank salmon so far, and are really enjoying it. Had a minor issue with the chimney extension, which they replaced immediately.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this review Tom!! We greatly appreciate it! Your setup looks fantastic and we know that food must be as good as it sounds when you're cooking it in a Maximus!

Love my Maximus Arena!

Oven was delivered as ordered, no problems. I have had a mostly metal pizza oven with a slim pizza stone, it was hard to keep a consistent temperature. This oven has thick fire brick, which stays at a constant 600-700 degrees for hours with minimal wood addition. First pizza was beautiful, and so far every one after that. Baked an apple crisp in the ceramic dish the oven came with, it was delicious! Love my Maximus Arena, and so do my friends! Thank you, Patio and Pizza!

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this fantastic review Judy! We love the Maximus Arena Black Outdoor Wood-Fired Oven and are so excited that you do too! And it looks like you are making delicious meals in it with such ease! Please do not ever hesitate to reach out to us if there is anything we can help you with in the future!

Fabulous purchase!

We love our oven. We’ve baked pizza, salmon, chicken and bread is next on the list. We researched ovens and decided on the Maximus because it was the best value. We chose to buy it from Patio & Pizza Outdoor Furnishings because the reviews on their service were great. Our experience was ideal and I highly recommend both the oven and the retailer.

Love the oven

Love the oven. Was disappointed when the metal threshold came off after a week. Patio & Pizza have been excellent in getting this corrected. Was disappointed when the manufacturer sent me Liquid Nails to fix. Now I am waiting for the correct adhesive from the manufacturer.

Thank you so much for the review Peter! We always appreciate such honesty. We really were disappointed to hear that you experienced the issue with the metal plate, but were eager to help you resolve it. We strive to provide the highest customer service and diligently work to be able to provide it. A happy customer is the best customer! Thank you for being so understanding through this process!
