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 wood fired oven is perfect for baking homemade bread!

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 4.75" Diameter 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
  • Ash/Wood Holder - helps block wood and ash from your pizzas
  • 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.

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.

Patio & Pizza National Associations          

  • 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 grade of stainless steel is used in your pizza ovens?

    Great question! Stainless steel makes for great pizza ovens! Not only are stainless steel pizza ovens portable and require less maintenance, but they also heat up very quickly which means you can whip up a great meal in a very short period of time. The  type of stainless steel used varies by brand and manufacturer. Some manufacturers use stainless 316, others use stainless 304 and other manufacturers, Alfa, for example, combine the best of both worlds - the physical and thermal properties of both stainless steel and refractory brick which makes for an excellent pizza oven!

  • Can I buy a cover for this pizza oven that I have already bought

    Absolutely! Our Pizza Oven Cover - Maximus Pizza Oven Cover (SKU: APO-COVER90) fits perfectly on the Maximus Arena Wood Fired Pizza Oven.

  • Can this pizza oven be stored outside even during the wintertime?

    While the Maximus Arena Outdoor Wood-Fired Oven can be left outside IF covered, this oven is only 130lbs and intended for regular portability. With it being so light-weight, it's recommended storing it somewhere for the winter to avoid the possibilty of damange if not covered properly.

  • can you deliver Nepal

    Unfortunately, we currently only ship to addresses within the United States or Canada. What we recommend to folks outside our delivery area is that they look to retailers who are closer in proximity for these products.

  • Can you recommend the optimal length of wood to use?

    The typical length of wood used for cooking in a pizza oven is 12 inches.  It's usually easier to start your fire with smaller pieces of wood before adding larger pieces.

    Please check this link for tons more information about the types of wood to use for cooking.

  • What is the recommended type and size of wood to use?

    That's a great question.  You can find a great resource for the types of wood recommended for wood-fired cooking here.

  • I live in San Tan Valley Arizona, would I be able to pick the oven up in Person ?

    Unfortunately, we don’t have a facility where they can pickup an oven in Arizona. But, we do ship free within the US.

  • Can you put it on a wood surface?

    The bottom of the Maximus oven is well-insulated.  With that said, you are dealing with fire in the oven so the chance of dropping a burning ambers on the wood surface is possible.  Therefore, we recommend putting a barrier between the pizza oven and any combustible material.

  • 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 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.
