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.
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 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.
Would the cork absorb and retain water/moisture from rain, etc for Brazza 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 Brazza 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.
