Maximus Prime Arena Wood Fired Oven

If you are looking for the best outdoor wood-fired pizza oven for your backyard, catering, or a food truck, this is the perfect wood-fired oven We personally use this wood-fired oven and LOVE IT!

ORDER NOW TO GET IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS!!!

The Prime wood-fired oven has a stainless steel 316 dropped ceiling inside the oven which directs the fire/heat from the back of the oven to the front of the oven and then up through a ceiling opening that goes back to the chimney.  This design sends the heat over your food which allows for convection cooking and better heat retention!

Wood-fired ovens create a family cooking atmosphere because, unlike a grill which involves one person doing all the cooking, a wood-burning pizza oven lets all family members get involved from firing up the oven to food preparation to cooking delicious meals.

You know it's awesome when a teenager WANTS to hang out and cook with you!

This is a super awesome modern wood-fired pizza oven that heats up in 30-45 minutes so you can fire it up after work and be ready for cooking before you finish your first glass of wine.   Handmade in Portugal, this oven produces superb wood-fired pizzas as well as any other dish you can imagine!  The larger cooking floor will fit up to 4 pizza pies at a time and pizzas will cook to perfection in less than 2 minutes.

For a limited time, when you buy the Prime Portable Pizza Oven, get a FREE Pizza Peel and Clay Roasting Pan (14.5″ x 10″ x 3″) - great for dishes such as chicken, beef, fish, veggies, bread and so much more!

Cleaning the Prime Pizza Oven

Questions About Your Oven

How do I clean my wood fired oven?

Good news… you don’t! Once the fire is out and cools, you just sweep it out and it’s ready for the next time!

What is curing and do I need to do this?

Curing simply means removing the moisture in the mortar. Curing will significantly help to protect the cooking ability and the life of your oven.  Just as with the authentic ovens of Europe, it is highly recommended that you “break in” your oven by making a small fire (low heat) to dry out any moisture in the oven.  

So, yes you need to cure your traditional brick and terracotta ovens (not necessary for portable ovens). It is recommended that before you begin you let your oven sit for about a week. You will be starting small fires and repeating daily for 5 days.

Start a small fire and let it burn throughout the day (4-5 hours) maintaining temperature:

Day 1. 140F/60C Day

Day 2. Repeat 215F/100C

Day 3. Repeat 300F/ 150C

Day 4. Repeat 400F/200C Day

Day 5. Repeat 480F/250C

Make sure that you close the oven door each night, which will keep in the heat and protect moisture from getting in until the curing process is complete.  A visual inspection of your oven will provide you with the best clue as to its readiness; the brick surfaces transition from black to white as the charcoal is burned off the oven walls.

 

Will my brick oven crack?

Sometimes our customers get so excited when their new oven arrives that they immediately create blazing hot fires for their first pizzas.  Unfortunately, this can lead to cracking if the curing process is not done first.   Cracks are completely normal for all hand-made terracotta and brick wood-burning ovens and won’t affect the cooking in any way.   However, you can minimize any cracking by going through a proper curing process as recommended above.

In the future, if you do have any superficial cracking in our brick ovens from Authentic Pizza Ovens, you can cover it with the included patch kit.   Here is a link to our website showing how to use it: https://www.patioandpizza.com/blogs/news/how-to-repair-cracks-with-ultrafire

 

Where do I start the fire in the oven?

The fire is started right on the oven floor. First, you build the fire close to the opening of the oven. When it’s burning well, you move it to the middle of the oven floor. When the oven is hot and ready for cooking, you move the fire to the side so your cooking space is available for your culinary masterpieces. Alternatively, you can take the coals out completely but it’s not nearly as fun!

 

How long does a wood-fired oven take to heat up?

It depends on the oven. Typically, when prepared correctly, the oven will take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour and a half to get to the right temperature to bake your delicious pizzas.

 

What kind of wood should I use?

Use hard, dry, aged wood such as oak, arbor, walnut, beech, apple, mesquite, maple fruitwood (peach, plum), avocado, olive, pecan, or eucalyptus. Avoid the use of resinous wood such as spruce or pine as they can be dangerous to your health.

 

 

Pizza and Cooking Questions

What tools do I need for my wood fire pizza oven?

You will definitely need a pizza peel.  In Pizza aficionado language, a peel is what you use to put your pizza in the oven, turn the pizza while in the oven, and pull it out when it’s done.  They look like a paddle with a long stick attached and come in wood or metal.

Some people like to use a small handled wood peel to prepare and put the pizza in the oven.  Then, they use a long handled aluminum peel to take out and place the pizza back on the wood one to cut and serve it.

There are different kinds of pizza peels. Long, short, wood, metal and combination of both.  If you don’t have a shovel or brush for your pizza oven, you will need them also.

For pizza tools, visit our website at https://www.patioandpizza.com/collections/pizza-oven-accessories 

 

What else can I cook in this oven?

If you can think of it, you can probably cook it in your oven! Naturally, our ovens bake the most delicious home-made pizzas!  But, you can try your hand with breads, fish, steak, burgers, lamb, desserts and more.  Some of our ovens even allow for a rotisserie add-on that allow you to create mouth-watering chicken and turkey! 

Typically, food will cook a bit faster (15 minutes approx.) in a wood burning oven than it does in a regular kitchen oven.

What kind of flour should I use?

Excellent pizza is all about the crust! We recommend several kinds of flour:

  • King Arthur Flour
  • Hayden Flour Mills
  • Caputo’s 00 (low in gluten)

Questions About Your Oven Delivery

What is the expected delivery time?

Depending upon where you live you should receive it within 4-10 days. We will give you shipping information and instructions once the freight company has confirmed pick up. We usually arrange pick up within 1-2 business days of purchase.

What if my oven is damaged when it arrives?

All ovens will be shipped without any damages and packed securely. It is important that you inspect your shipment with the driver when it arrives. In the rare event that there is damage, please have the driver note it on the freight bill PRIOR to the delivery truck leaving.

Do you offer a warranty?

We want you to be happy with your product!   All of our products come with their manufacturer warranties.  

Regarding pizza ovens, our ovens are quality checked before being shipped to our customers. That being said, traditional wood burning ovens may develop small cracks either inside or outside as described above. This is normal and you should expect it to happen.  As you do your research, you will find that this is the case with all handmade European wood fire ovens. Therefore, there is not a return warranty on our traditional ovens due to any cracking. Personally, we think it adds character and is recognized in Europe as a sign of a well-seasoned oven.

We love our Pizza Oven

We just got our pizza oven and have already used it twice. Who has pizza two times in one week? We sure did. It is so fun to get the family together and enjoy making your own pizza. The oven is perfect. We live in AZ and it has weathered the monsoon storms just fine. We couldn't be happier with our purchase. Bringing families together over pizza. What could be better!

Thanks for the 5-star review! Yes, isn't it great to fire up the oven to make pizzas and other goodies anytime you want?!? Glad you love the Prime! We use that oven and love it also! Happy Cooking!

I looked at many different outdoor pizza ovens and decided on the Prime Pizza Oven and am I glad I did! It produces the most amazing pizzas. It heats up in under an hour, is well-built, and is easy to maintain. Customer service is first-rate. Pam worked with me every step of the way, answering all my questions. The oven was delivered right to my door as promised. They're a great company with a great product! You will not be disappointed with the quality or how it functions.

Thank you for the great review Lino! We truly appreciate it! And, thanks for sharing the video of your pizza night. Our Facebook fans loved it! Looking forward to seeing new culinary masterpieces from the Chef! :-)

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • How tall is the chimney on the Prime

    The chimney on the Prime oven is 36” high and is made entirely of stainless steel.   

  • What material are the walls made up of ?

    The interior walls of the Prime oven are made of 316 Stainless Steel and the outside of Aluminum.  The 316 Stainless Steel is the preferred steel for use in marine environments because of its greater resistance to pitting corrosion so it really holds up for keeping your oven in good condition despite the weather. The walls of the Prime wood-fired oven are double walls with a high-temperature special ceramic blanket within the walls.  We use this oven all the time and you can touch the outside of the pizza oven while the fire is blazing without burning your hand because of how well the oven is insulated.  We also have quite a few customers using this oven in food trucks and in restaurants.

  • I need to order this oven ahead of time to build the frame of where it’s going to be, how will we get help on lifting it when it’s ready to be dropped

    The Prime wood-fired oven weighs approximately 300 lbs so it can be lifted with the help of some strong friends.  However, the refractory bricks that make up the oven floor can be easily removed.  If you take out the bricks, the oven only weighs around 100 lbs and can be picked up and moved to your base,  Then, you can put the bricks back in the oven.   We used this method when moving the Prime oven to our own base.

  • Can the Prime Pizza Oven be installed on a trailer?

    Most definitely! We have numerous customers using the Prime on trailers and in food trucks. The Prime would work perfectly bolted on a trailer because it has 3 rails underneath. The oven actually sits up an inch off the bottom so you won't have to worry about the bottom getting hot (and it has a ceramic fire blanket insulating the bottom anyway).  

  • What's the floor size of the brick ovens from Authentic Pizza Ovens?

    There is 5" from the bottom of the oven to the floor base. The base filled with Rockwood insulation is approximately 2.5" so the bricks are around 2.5" thick as well.

  • What's the heating time of stainless steel and brick ovens?

    Stainless steel pizza ovens will heat faster but they won't stay hot as long. Brick ovens take longer to completely heat but the heat will be retained in the oven for much longer cooking times.  

  • How long will it take to have my Prime pizza oven delivered?

    We typically ship our Authentic Pizza Ovens quickly when you order them (same or next day).  The Prime Pizza Oven ships from our warehouse in Arizona so depending on where you live, the delivery time could be 1 - 7 days.  We will send tracking as soon as it ships so you will be able to track your oven.  Once your oven arrives at the local terminal, you should get a call from the freight company to schedule the actual delivery.
