Outdoor pizza ovens have become increasingly popular in recent years, as more and more people look to create authentic, wood-fired pizzas to rival those found in traditional ristorantes. These specialized ovens are designed to cook pizzas at high temperatures, typically ranging from 700 to 900 degrees Fahrenheit, in as little as 90 seconds. This is how pizza in Italy was originally, and still is, made creating a unique pizza which cannot be replicated in the traditional home oven.

Outdoor pizza ovens come in a variety of sizes and styles, from small portable models to larger, permanent installations that become the centerpiece of the backyard.

Most outdoor pizza ovens are designed to run on wood, gas, wood pellets, or a combination of gas and wood.  While not as common, there are some electric models  also available.  

Ultimately, the choice between wood-fired and gas-fired pizza ovens comes down to personal preference, the ambiance factor,  and cooking style. While wood-fired ovens offer a traditional, authentic experience, gas-fired ovens provide convenience and consistent temperature control. 

Note that the quality of pizza made in a high temp oven, whether it be wood or gas fired is essentially the same.  Contrary to popular belief, wood fired ovens  do not impart a smoky flavor on the pizza.  They are in the oven for only 60 to 90 seconds so there's no time for that smoky flavor to develop.  The char, or 'leopard spots' on the crust come from the intense high heat - whether produced by gas, electric, or wood.  Purists will argue that a wood fired oven is drier than a gas one and results in a better, more authentic pizza, but I think the difference in taste , if any, is very subtle.  

Beyond pizza, outdoor pizza ovens can also cook a wide range of other dishes, from bread to roasted meats and vegetables. With their high heat output and versatile design, outdoor pizza ovens offer a unique and exciting way to elevate your outdoor cooking game and impress your friends and family.
