If you are considering a wood burning pizza oven but are a bit short on space, you are in luck. The Forno Allegro Nonno Lillo is incredibly compact and can fit in nearly any backyard area, with little to no fuss. It also looks much more like a “classic” pizza oven than many of its competitors, so if you are all about the appearance, this might be the pizza oven for you.

Its small size and appearance make it great for those living in small spaces without much extra room, but this pizza oven’s size also makes it very easy to control the temperature and make some truly great pizzas.

Reviews consistently state that this oven is easy to use, compact, and fits easily into their back area. It isn’t just for pizza, either – you can cook any number of dishes in this small oven. If you want something with a little more space and extra bells and whistles, this may not be the oven for you – but if you want something for a small yard that can cook excellent pizzas, look no further.

Who is This Pizza Oven For?

If you live in a small flat or a home with little to no extra outdoor space, this is the oven to have. It is quite small and can fit pretty much anywhere. Its design is higher than it is wide and features a chimney to channel smoke safely away.

It also retains heat longer than most other ovens, particularly those of comparable size, so it is much more fuel-efficient and requires less wood – yet another way to save some space. It’s perfect for smaller yards or back areas, and for those who really love a good homemade pizza – like me.

Where Can I Use This Oven?

Since it’s relatively compact, as long as you have a space tall enough to snugly fit this oven in, then you can use it almost anywhere outdoors. It is not an easily transportable oven and weighs 35 kg, which is a little heavier than many other pizza ovens.

What it lacks in movability, it makes up for in function. The flat cooking space sits neatly in a dome, allowing for even temperature distribution and even cooking throughout. It isn’t just for pizza, either – many customers say they can cook any number of their favourites meals in this neat little oven.

It is a perfect addition for a small yard, particularly one where you might plan on cooking often and have no plans of moving about any time soon.

What Makes This Oven Special?

This oven is much small than most of its competitors and can fit into some pretty snug areas with ease. It also boasts a pleasing stainless-steel finish in black and can reach some high temperatures. Its shape and design create the perfect space for even cooking.

Some of the best features of the Forno Allegro Nonno Lillo are:

  • The volcano lava stone oven floor, which heats up faster and retains heat longer for better efficiency
  • Easy to read temperature gauge on top of the oven
  • Solid and durable base
  • Stainless steel makes it relatively resistant to the outdoor elements
  • Can be used for more than just pizza making

Our Verdict

This oven is compact, affordable, and durable. You can cook any number of foods in it, not just pizza. It is a great addition to your yard, and if you live in a small flat or somewhere in the city, there is no reason you should not be able to enjoy a good homemade pizza or smoked dish. With this model, you can.
