The Maximus Oven will transform your tailgate party!

A tailgater's dream and one of the best portable wood fired pizza ovens!!!  If you need to satisfy your inner caveman with STEAK & FIRE, this little oven will allow you to experience flavors you can’t get from traditional indoor ovens. 

The Maximus outdoor wood-fired oven is portable, so it works as a permanent feature in your backyard or can be taken tailgating, to family reunions, to a friend’s for the holidays, and more. Be the most popular tailgater this season when you are grilling steaks and whipping up delicious game day food in your Maximus Portable Outdoor Pizza Oven.

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 Arena Pizza Oven from Authentic Pizza Ovens is perfect for cooking traditional focaccia pizza in your own backyard!

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!

Maximus Arena Features

The Maximus Arena wood-fired pizza oven is of great quality at a fantastic price:

  • Handmade in Portugal - as authentic as you can get!
  • The outer wall is aluminum; the inner wall is stainless steel 316 - built to withstand the elements better than stainless steel 304, giving you a lifetime of entertaining
  • Between the tough double walls and underneath the durable floor tiles is an insulated ceramic blanket - stays hot for hours inside while cool outside!  
  • The oven floor is made of removable ceramic refractory tiles and the decorative bricks in the front are composed of refractory cement.

Included with your Maximus:

  • Removable Stainless Chimney - makes it easy to put your Maximus in the car for the party
  • Oven Door - use when you are cooking at slow heat to make perfectly crusted bread loaves!
  • Clay Baking Dish (14.5″ x 10″ x 3″) - great for cooking chicken, fish, and other scrumptious dishes
  • Aluminum Pizza Peel  - perfect for putting your pizza in the oven and turning to perfection - aluminum pizza peels don’t need to be seasoned and won’t absorb unwanted odors and food particles like wood peels
  • Thermometer (0-932°F) - know the perfect time to cook your entrees
  • 2 Extra Floor Tiles - just in case you ever need them
  • Sleek black or red design - A pop of red always heats things up!

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.

We couldn't wait!

We couldn't wait! Still waiting for our shelter house to be completed so we can put it in its final place but couldn't wait. So, we set it on a pallet and random bricks and have already made about 20 pizzas.

Not quite ready to receive your oven or kitchen island yet?  Don't worry - you can purchase now to reserve your product and lock in pricing.  We will delay delivery until you are ready!

At Patio & Pizza, we want you to be confident that your order will reach you safely and quickly.  We've outlined the order and shipping processes below for your convenience:

Order Confirmation

When you place your order, you will receive an order confirmation e-mail outlining the product you purchased.  This tells you we received your order and pre-authorized your credit card for the purchase.  As soon as we receive your order, we automatically confirm that it is available for immediate shipment.  

If your item is available for immediate shipment (within 5 business days), we will process the charges and submit the order for shipment.  If your item is on back-order or unavailable (and was not a pre-purchase), we will void the credit card pre-authorization and reach out to you via e-mail or phone to discuss options.  

Order Shipment

If your order is in stock and we process the charges to your credit card, the product(s) will ship within five business days (usually by next day) from the date of your order. 

Due to weight of the some of the items, we may contact you to determine appropriate freight shipping requirements. If the item is over 150lbs and you do not have a fork-lift to get it off the truck, you need Lift-Gate service at delivery.  The good news?  WE PAY IT FOR YOU!  :-)  But, we need to know you need it!   See additional Lift-Gate Information further down.

Depending on delivery requirements, there may be a freight handling charge for special residential, lift-gate requirements, or requests (ie, white glove treatment) at your delivery location. 

Once your item ships, we will send tracking information to the e-mail address provided when checking out.  If you do not receive tracking information from us within 6 business days of your order, feel free to follow up with us at CustomerService@patioandpizza.com.

Damages

Pizza Ovens are heavy and take careful preparation to ship successfully.  We want yours to arrive safely at your destination.  Please inspect the packaging of your oven or accessories when they arrive.  If you notice any damage, you must make note of it when signing for delivery.  In the unfortunate event that the delivery company damages your item, write "damaged" on the driver's bill, send photos to CustomerService@patioandpizza.com, and give us a call so we can process an insurance claim on your behalf and correct the situation.

 

Frequently Asked Lift-Gate Questions

Many of our outdoor pizza ovens, kitchen island kits, and outdoor kitchen components are extremely heavy and take special consideration when delivering to your location.   When ordering, it is important to note whether you need a lift gate upon delivery of your order to your residence or business.
 

Below are answers to our most frequently asked lift gate questions so you can make the right decision on your needs.  

How will my order be delivered?

Freight is used only when shipments are over 120lbs or are over-sized.The standard Freight shipping delivery method is typically called “curb-side delivery”.   Curb-side delivery is the method used on all our freight shipments unless other arrangements are made.

We will schedule delivery date for you but the delivery company should give you a call a day or two ahead of time to schedule and confirm the delivery timeframe.   

Your delivery will be made with a full size Semi-Truck ranging from 20 to 53 feet in length. The truck WILL NOT be a box truck like a UPS or FedEx truck.  We typically cannot request a certain length of truck for final delivery, so please assume it will be a long truck.  The driver is only obligated to deliver curbside at the end of your driveway so it will be your responsibility to move it from there.

We have found that most drivers will deliver up your driveway when possible but it is up to them to decide.  That being said, sometimes the drivers will help but they are not obligated to help in any way once the freight is off the truck. If the truck does not have a lift gate, you would be responsible for getting the item off the back of the semi truck.

What do I need to know regarding my delivery?

  • If your product ships via LTL Freight, someone will need to be home at the time of delivery.
  • Your delivery is curbside only so you are responsible for moving item to desired location.  Many customers use an engine hoist, fork-lift, or even a crane in some cases to get their heavy item to it's desired location.
  • The freight carrier will call you in advance to make an appointment before they attempt delivery.
  • Please use the telephone number that will also reach you because the freight company will use that number when attempting to deliver.

What is a Lift-gate?

A lift-gate is basically a hydraulic lift used to raise and lower items from ground level to the level of a delivery truck or trailer. Most freight companies deliver items on a truck which are usually designed to load and unload at a loading dock or with a fork-lift.

If your delivery location (ie, residence) does not have a loading dock or fork-lift and the item is too heavy to remove from the trailer by hand, then you would need a lift-gate. 

Do I need lift-gate delivery?

If the individual items in your shipment are light enough for you to remove from the truck, you do not need a lift-gate. If your item is over 120 lbs and you live in a residential location, you will need a lift-gate.

If your delivery location has a loading dock or a forklift, you do not need a lift-gate. If you are willing to drive to the closest terminal and pick up the freight from the delivery terminal, you do not need a lift-gate.

People often ask “how does the delivery company expect residential customers to get the heavy freight off the truck?” Unfortunately, the answer is: “they expect you to pay for a lift-gate delivery”. You don’t want a delivery truck trying to deliver without a lift-gate and then not have a way to get it off the back of the truck.

If you can’t get the freight off the truck, there will be a re-delivery fee on top of the full retail lift gate fee.

*Please note: In some area’s freight companies may require lift-gate delivery for liability reasons.

Is lift-gate delivery always available?

No. The availability of a lift-gate varies by carrier and type of truck used for delivery. Therefore, it is very important to notify us in advance if you will require lift-gate delivery since most trucks are not equipment with a lift-gate.

How much does lift-gate delivery cost?

The charge for lift-gate service from the Freight company is typically $75.00.  The good news?  WE WILL ARRANGE THE SERVICE FOR YOU!  :-)  Just make sure you let us know you need it!

How do I request lift-gate service?

We make it easy for you to request the lift-gate service when ordering your oven.  Simply select "Free US Shipping - Residential/Lift-Gate Needed" when checking out and the lift gate service will be added at checkout.

We understand your love of fire and can help turn a boring backyard into an outdoor paradise focusing on friends, food, and fire!

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • How do you move it around? Are there handles to assist? does it come with a stand/wheels? Can you move it when hot?

    Great question!  There is a custom stand for the Maximus oven that is an optional accessory.  Here is the link to the Maximus with the stand.  Typically, we don't move the oven while it's cooking but the stand does have casters so you can easily move the oven around.   Let us know if you have any additional questions about the Maximus or any other oven!

  • What are the measurements of the door opening?

    The dimensions of the Maximus Pizza Oven door opening are 15.5"w x 9"h.  The cooking area inside the Maximus pizza oven is 23.5"w x 23.5"d.  If you haven't seen it yet, here is a great video of someone cooking using the Maximus oven so you can see the dimensions for comparison.

  • 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 Maximus pizza oven delivered?

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

  • Should you keep the Maximus pizza oven covered when not in use?

    While the Maximus pizza oven is made of stainless steel and aluminum which stands up well in harsh weathers, we always recommend covering any outdoor appliance when not in use to protect it from the sun, rain, and harsher weathers.   With proper care and covering with the Maximus Oven Covers, your outdoor Maximus wood-burning oven should last a lifetime!

  • What size pizza can you cook

    The cooking space of the Maximus oven is around 23.5" x 23.5" so, depending how much wood you use in the oven, you should be able to can cook a couple of 10" pizzas or a really large pizza.  Since the fun is making and cooking pizzas, we find most customers (including ourselves) make smaller personal pizzas so you can have fun trying a variety of pizza styles during the pizza party!  You can find a video showing pizzas cooking in the Maximus wood-fired oven on the Video tab of the Maximus product page. 

  • Can you paint or tile the red or black exterior steel?

    Since the Maximus Oven is already painted, putting a different color layer of paint right on top of the oven may not stick as well.  Therefore, it is not recommended.  You could potentially tile the oven using a compound that would stick to the painted surface and hold the tiles.
