In order for us to provide you with the best possible service, we compare many of the biggest retailers of pizza ovens that you can find online and pick the best price in our opinion, which basically means that if we have to go with an oven that is £30 more expensive than the cheapest price we could find, but we know that the lowest price retailer has failed customers before, we would always recommend paying the additional £30 for a better buying experience.

What to consider when buying a pizza oven

If you are thinking about buying a pizza oven for your home, you could be wondering what you should be thinking about when buying a pizza oven, so to ensure that you are thinking about all of the right questions to ask yourself, here are a few things that we think you should take into consideration when trying to find the right pizza oven for you.

Oven Size

Not all pizza ovens are created equally and there are a wide range of sizes and dimensions available to you on the market today, so you need to take a minute to think about just how much cooking space you need inside your oven to make it right for your requirements.

For example, if you are looking to buy a pizza oven that is built into your outside living space in your garden with a purpose for using it to entertain friends and family, the chances are that if you are going to be using it to cook food for them, you are going to need a larger space than is available in some of the smaller, more compact options out there.

While you are thinking about the amount of space inside the oven available to you, it would also be a good idea to take a moment to think about the dimensions of the exterior of the oven too, as if you are thinking about placing your oven in a compact space, you are going to want to avoid some of the larger, clay based pizza ovens on offer.


We know that the prospect of being able to create your own mouth-watering pizzas in your own home is making your heart skip a beat, take a moment to realise that although a pizza oven may look the part, there will be some options out there that simply won’t be able to handle what you would like them to do.

When you are making such a financial commitment to something as special as a pizza oven in your own home, you are going to want to make sure that you select an oven that is robust and capable of being able to handle the conditions that it will face over the next few years.

There will be an array of options out there that are made from different materials, including metal, stone and clay, each of which offer a range of different benefits and negatives, so we strongly advise that you take the time to weigh each option up properly before jumping into buying something to avoid disappointment.

Style and Appearance

Buying a pizza oven isn’t just about the delicious food that you will be able to produce at home, it is about creating a fantastic focal point that your friends and family will be able to see and enjoy the sight of too.

There are a wide number of choices when it comes to choosing a style of oven, from more modern metal ovens that can be moved easily through to the more traditional brick and clay arch style that are fixed to a single place within your garden.

While looks aren’t everything, the shape of your chosen pizza oven does play a part in the performance that you can expect to see too, for example a dome-shaped oven that has a barrel vault will give you a more efficient oven when compared to more streamlined styles.

Consider it just a little food for thought.
