What can the oven set on?
Great question! These ovens just need a base that will hold 1100lbs so you have lots of options depending on the look you are trying to accomplish. You can build a base out of cylinder blocks, bricks or concrete. We also carry metal carts that were built to hold these ovens. You can find the brick oven stand by clicking this link. As far as how to move the oven into place, it's not always as hard as it seems! The oven is shipped packed in a crate on a pallet so most customers use one of the following methods: 1. Move the entire crate using a forklift and then once opened, move the oven into place with either the forklift or engine hoist 2. Open the crate and move the oven with an engine hoist (attaching chains to the 4 eyelets on the corners of the oven) 3. Open the crate and move the oven with a crane (attaching chains to the 4 eyelets on the corners of the oven) - believe it or not, in some areas you can get this done for under $200

What are the features of PIZZAIOLI and BRAZZA ovens?
These ovens are exactly the same with just a different face. The Pizzaioli has a traditional terracotta brick face and iron zinc plated door while the Brazza has a black/dark brown cast stone face with a black door to match.
Is the Pizzaioli oven suitable for a small commercial kitchen?
Yes, it is suitable for a commercial kitchen. It is a great oven and keeps warm for many hours even after cooking.
Do you sell anything to fill in the cracks on my oven?
Unfortunately, we do not. The Ultra Fire kit ships with our Authentic Pizza Brick Ovens to fill any future cracks but we don't sell it separately at this time.
What's the heating time of stainless steel and brick ovens?
Stainless steel pizza ovens will heat faster but they wont 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.
Would the cork absorb and retain water/moisture from rain, etc for Pizzaioli oven?
The cork option actually provides an extra layer of insulation to protect the brick dome from moisture, cracking, etc. With that said, we always recommend covering your oven when not in use to protect it from the elements because, like everything else, it will look better and stay in better shape when protected from excessive sun and rain.
Will there be problems with Pizzaioli oven in winter?
We have customers that have this oven in snow without any issues. We recommend covering when not in use.
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 tools do I need for my wood fired pizza oven?
You will need a pizza peel to put your pizza pie in the oven, turn the pizza while in the oven, and pull out your scrumptious pizza when it's done. Next, we recommend a good infrared thermometer to measure the heat in your oven when cooking, an oven brush for brushing away the ashes, and an ash shovel to remove the ash after cooking. We have a great selection of pizza oven tools available here: https://www.patioandpizza.com/collections/pizza-oven-accessories.
Hey guys! Just wondering if you ship to canada? Also if outside how well do these hold up to the elements?
The Pizzaioli brick ovens hold up extremely well in harsh elements. Several customers have sent us pictures cooking in their Pizzaioli in the snow! Like most outdoor accessories, we do recommend covering your pizza oven when not in use to protect it from the rain and sun but it should last you many years of enjoyment!
Shipping to Canada is an option with extra freight charges. If you email your address to email@example.com, we can let you know what it would take to get the Pizzaioli pizza oven to you. :-)
