Would I be able to contro the temperature well enough to bake bread without burning it? How does the delivery work. Do you take the oven around the house to the backyard and set it up? What kind od access do you need? Thanks
Yes, the Pizzaioli brick oven holds heat very well so once you reach the desired temperature, you can bake bread to perfection. It does take some practice and experimentation when first starting out but we have many customers who bake bread in their oven. The best way to determine the temperature is with an infrared thermometer.
Regarding shipping, the oven will be delivered in a crate via Freight delivery with curbside lift-gate service. That means the delivery driver will take the oven off the truck and put it in your driveway. They won't be able to move it to your backyard. Most customers use either an engine hoist or have a contractor use a forklift to move the oven to its base. You can read even more about our shipping policies here. Let us know if we can assist further!
What tools do I need for my wood fire 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.
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.
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 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.
Do you sell anything to fill in the cracks on my oven?
Yes! We sell the Ultra Fire kit that ships with our Authentic Pizza Brick Ovens. The Ultra Fire pizza oven repair solution can be used to fill any cracks. Click here to go the Ultra Fire Kit Product Page.
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.
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.
What would be required to install this oven indoors.
Every indoor pizza oven installation will be different depending on your residence structure and your geographical location so make sure that your installation complies with your local building codes. The first step when considering purchasing an indoor pizza oven is to determine if there are any certifications needed for the pizza oven. Unfortunately, none of the Authentic Pizza Ovens (the brand) are certified for indoor use, therefore they can not be installed indoors.
What is the weight of the Pizzaioli Brick Wood Fired Pizza Oven?
995lbs (Traditional), 1500lbs (Stone), 1850lbs (Rustic)
My question is about delivery. I'm interested in the Pizzaioli Brick Wood Fired Pizza Ove. It weighs about 1500 lbs. Is the oven dropped off at my front door and it will be up to me to get it in the back yard on the table I built. Or will the crew that delivered it move it all the way to the backyard? Thank you, Dan, California
When purchasing an oven from us, you get free lift-gate service included with your delivery. This means the carrier service will get the oven off the truck for you and will typically place it in a driveway or garage. It depends on the layout of your home and the driver of the carrier service on where exactly they will unload the oven. The carrier service will not place your oven on the table you built for it though. This will be up to you. In order to help you with this, we have a blog post about moving your oven to the base. This will be extremely useful information in this situation since the oven in the blog will be delivered exactly like the oven you see in the blog post. You can find the post here.
I am interested in the Pizzaioli oven. Wondering if I can use gas and wood?. Can it come with a rotating roaster pre build Inside ?
Thank you for your interest in our products! Our Pizzaioli ovens are all wood burning only. They cannot be converted to gas and, because they are handmade cannot be customized to include a rotating roaster. However, our Lisboa and Famosi wood burning ovens are designed so that a Spit/Rotisserie can be used with them.
Where is your choice of colors for the ovens. Do you have examples to look at?
The Pizzaioli Brick Pizza Oven comes with the traditional white dome, a stone covered dome, or a brick covered dome. For the traditional white dome, you can paint or tile the dome to the color of your choice. Here is a link to all the authentic brick ovens so you can see many different styles: https://www.patioandpizza.com/collections/brick-pizza-ovens-authentic
Do you deliver to the UK and wat are the prices for the pizza ovens
Unfortunately, we only deliver to US. Thanks for the interest!
My oven has lots of cracks from curing it. When using the repair kit I understand it needs to be Hot. Do I repair it when the fire burns out or do I do so with a fire lit? Also when cooking a pizza what temperature do I need to get the oven to? Thank you!
There is a great video on here for using the Ultrafire Brick Oven Repair Kit. You just want to make sure the oven dome is hot.
Also, Click here for the blog post on Pizza Oven Temperatures to use when cooking. We typically cook our pizzas at around 700F - 800F. Cooking at a higher temperature for quick pizzas is great for commercial use but, for residential cooking, it often leads to burnt pizzas unless you are watching and turning your pizzas quickly. Experimenting is a great way to find what works best in your oven!
Hello. I purchased the Lesboa from you all and and on my last day of curing it. Im loving it so far .When ready to cook pizzas what temperature do I need to get it too?
Excellent question! Here's a great blog post on Pizza Oven Temperatures to use when cooking. We typically cook our pizzas at around 700F - 800F. Cooking at a higher temperature for quick pizzas is great for commercial use but, for residential cooking, it often leads to burnt pizzas unless you are watching and turning your pizzas quickly. Experimenting is a great way to find what works best in your oven! Happy cooking!
Hello! I purchased a pizza oven last month and now need to buy wood. What kind of wood do I need to purchase? Thank you!
That's a great question! We wrote a blog post that talks about the type of wood to use in your wood-fired oven as well as some resources for finding the right wood. You can read the "Wood for Pizza Oven" blog post here.
Does the oven come with a pre drilled whole for a thermostat? Also if i purchase your cover , is it a heavy duty cover because the winds where i live are very strong and always ripping up every cover i buy? What carrier do you use for the shipping and would they be able to drop off in my backyard rather then leaving it up front until I get my contractor to set it up for me?
Yes, the Pizzaioli Brick Oven comes with a thermometer and there is a hole pre-drilled for that thermometer. The custom cover that is made for these ovens are nylon. Our customers that use the cover in all areas of the US tell us they work fine but you may need something super think if all of your other covers are tearing. These brick ovens must ship via Freight so we use multiple freight carriers (ie, SAIA, RoadRunner, Estes) depending on where the oven is shipped. We pay for shipping and curbside lift-gate service which means the delivery driver will take the oven off the truck and put it in your driveway (or close). The delivery drivers do not have any method for moving the oven to your backyard so you'd need to work with your contractor to move the oven to the backyard and on its base. The freight company will call you before delivering so you can schedule for a time when your contractor is available. Let us know if you need any additional information!
How does this come shipped and what is the weight on this oven
The Pizzaioli Brick Oven weighs around 995lbs. 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.
As we don't know the local contractors in your area, I'd recommend either asking the contractor doing your backyard work if they can provide one of the options mentioned above or checking on Angie's List to find a reliable local contractor.
