Feels like we are on vacation in our own backyard...

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

Important Note: The Maximus Prime Large Pizza Oven is currently on backorder with additional ovens en route from Portugal. The next container carrying these beautiful ovens is scheduled to arrive in port in 12 weeks. This is an approximate date and may change. These ovens will be sold out well before their arrival in port so it is highly recommended that, if you are interested in purchasing one of these ovens, your order be placed very soon in order to be guaranteed an oven from this upcoming container.

Once your order has been placed, it will be placed in a queue in the order your order was placed.  While your total purchase price will be authorized, we will only capture a deposit of $250 to hold your oven.  You will pay the remaining balance before the oven ships to you.

Those orders placed after this container has sold out will be reserved an oven from the next container scheduled to arrive. We greatly appreciate your business as well as your patience.  Thank you!

The Maximus Prime ARENA is the upgraded style that has a slate front look rather than the traditional brick look.

Maximus Prime pizza oven air flow through chimney

Don't be fooled by the chimney at the back of the oven.  The Prime Arena Stainless Steel Wood-Fired Oven has an aluminum dome with a stainless steel 316 dropped ceiling inside the oven.  This ceiling 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 as you can see in the video below!

Why Choose a Stainless Steel Pizza Oven?

Unlike a brick oven, a stainless steel pizza oven 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 fits up to 5-6 pizza pies at a time and they will cook to perfection in less than 2 minutes.

For a limited time, when you buy the Prime Portable Pizza Oven, get a FREE 12" Metal Turning 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!

Prime wood burning pizza oven in garden

We've found that our Maximus Prime Pizza Oven (old style above) creates a family cooking atmosphere because, unlike a grill that involves one person doing all the cooking, this large pizza oven lets all family members get involved from firing up the oven to food preparation to cooking delicious meals.

Prime Oven Videos 

Breakfast Casserole Cooking in Prime Pizza Oven

We don't like wasting good heat in our wood-burning ovens so after the pizzas are cooked, we often throw in a good breakfast casserole in preparation for the following morning!  Here's a video of a scrumptious southwestern breakfast casserole complete with eggs, cheese, and salsa! Check out the large cooking space!

 

Here's another video showing a couple of pizzas cooking in the Maximus Prime oven.

Good product overall, and good customer service.

My shipment took nearly 2 months to arrive, and upon arrival, was found to have some significant structural damage (think: dents, cracked bricks, torn insulation blanket). Patio and Pizza was kind enough to provide me with a cover and replacement bricks, along with some instructions for how to repair the dents. Aside from the shipping issues, the product works great overall and I've really enjoyed learning how to build and maintain the fire, and cook some great food!

Your setup looks great Jordan! Thank you so much for this honest review! We've faced many challenges through this unprecedented time; shipping delays being the largest. We truly appreciate your kindness and understanding through the entire process. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions or need any help along your pizza making journey! We look forward to helping you with any of your pizza oven needs!

Excellent Customer Service

I purchased my oven in the tail end of the pandemic, there was nothing but delays all around and beyond P&P control which lead to even more delays in furfilling my order, your customer service department was nothing but extraordinary. They held my hand, answered my emails, and followed up day after day until the very end. I even received a phone call from Michelle after I finished setting up my oven to make sure everything was ok and I was happy.

Wow! Thank you SO much for this wonderful review John! Working with you has been a delight! We truly thank you over and over again for being so understanding and patient through this process! We have had to face many hurtles along the way, and were eager and willing to clear them to the best of our abilities! We are more than happy to ALWAYS help our customers through every process, whether it is the beginning of the process, or the end. We look forward to serving you for all your Pizza and Patio needs!

So happy

We couldn’t be happier than we are with ourMaximus Prime pizza oven. We have zero problems with ordering and delivery. We’ve really enjoyed trying it out! We’ve roasted a chicken and veggies, had some pizza & calzone and tonight we cooked porterhouse steaks with baked potatoes and roasted asparagus. So excited to have the whole season ahead of us!

Thank you so much

Great customer service

So after several weeks of email Pam about which oven I should get, I finally pulled the trigger on the Maximus Prime. Ordered it on Thur and it was here on Wed. Had my neighbor open my garage door to let the delivery driver put it in my garage. I was so excited to come home and unpackage my oven. To my surprise the oven was damaged, I took a few pics and emailed Pam about my concern. She and the company went above and beyond my expectation to fix my issue. I would recommend them to anyone. And do I like the oven no I don’t, I love the oven. Wish I ordered it sooner. Thanks again

Thanks for the great review and wonderful pictures Dennis! Glad you are enjoying your new oven!

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.

  • Can this unit be built in to a summer kitchen and framed and supported properly or does it need exposure other than the chimney?

    The Maximus Prime Large Pizza Oven isn't certified for indoor use in the United States.

  • What are the base thickness requirements to support the maximums Prime large pizza oven.

    I'm going to share a link to one of our blog posts that will help you with this! The Prime doesn't technically need a top to a base to hold the oven. There are rails on the bottom of the oven to support it. As long as you are making sure the structure you have can support the weight and is made of non-combustible material, you've got everything covered! 
    How To Build A Pizza Oven Base

  • Can the Oven be retrofitted with a gas burner. If so, which of the ones you sell would you recommend?

    The Maximus Prime Large Pizza Oven is a wood burning pizza oven. If you are looking for an oven similar to this that is a gas burning oven, in both size and quality, check the Belforno Countertop Pizza Oven in size Grande!

  • How hot does the outside get, dome and bottom

    Great question! Even though internal temsp are much, much, higher, because of the way it is insulated, the outside of the Maximus Prime Large Pizza Oven is cool enough that you can place a hand on it. However, it is highly reccomended that it be placed on a sturdy base, away from all flammable materials.

  • In the specifications above it says the walls are made of 304-2B stainless steel. But in your Q&A here you state the stainless steel is 316 which is a better grade. Which one is it?

    Great question! 316 grade stainless steel is used for the inside of the Maximus Prime large Pizza Oven; 315 grade is used for the outside of this oven.

  • Do you sell the smaller version of the Maximus wood fire over

    We do sell the Maximus Arena Outdoor Wood-Fired Oven (Red: SKU:APO-MAXR, Black: SKU: APO-MAXB) which, at 130 lbs, is portable and great to take camping or tailgating!  They can be found here: https://www.patioandpizza.com/products/maximus-arena-wood-fired-oven-authentic-pizza-ovens?variant=8114924322921

  • is the oven weather proof? i am considering installing it on the patio and exposed to the elements.

    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. However, all of our ovens require “all-weather” protection from rain, sleet and snow, fallen leaves, and protection from harsh elements when not in use. We do offer a cover for this very purpose, our Pizza Oven Cover - Prime Large Pizza Oven Cover (SKU: APO-COVER100) which protects your investment and looks great while doing so!

  • How high will the temperature go and how long does it sustain it? How much wood is needed to achieve 850-900 degrees F?

    You can put enough wood in the oven to turn it into a fire much hotter than you’d ever need but, at some point, you’ll start burning up your oven.  While the oven can withstand a fire of 900 degrees, it’s usually way too hot to cook at that temperature for most customers.  We recommend keeping the fire below 900 degrees.

  • Does this oven have to be vented outside if you use it in a restaurant or can you just set it under the hood system?

    The Maximus Prime can be used either way and is a super oven.  However, if you need to have an oven that is UL-listed for indoor commercial use, this oven does not have that certification.  For commercial ovens certified for indoor commercial use, you may need to look at the ovens found here:  https://www.patioandpizza.com/collections/installation_commercial

  • Does the red exterior fade or loose its color due to heat I want red but worried about discoloration from heat

    Thanks for the great question.  The Maximus Primes are very popular ovens and, as far as we know, we've never had anyone complain about the red color fading or losing its color.  We personally use the Prime oven and love it!

  • Can I use Maximus Prime Large Pizza Oven for baking bread?

    Yes, most definitely!  We have baked bread in our Maximus Prime Large Oven many times.  Also, for reference, here is a video showing bread being baked in the smaller Maximus oven:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJn6nfkM6tE
