Who Is This Pizza Oven For?

This traditional brick oven is perfect for those who are looking for a classic way to make pizza.

This oven is based on traditional Mediterranean wood fire ovens, so it is sure to make a pizza that has reigned true for years. This traditional style will become your new favourite part of your backyard.

Weight: This great behemoth weighs in at 480 kg and requires a forklift to install, so make sure that you are sure about the spot that you want it in your backyard, because it would require a lot of effort to move if you suddenly decide that it would look better over by the pool.

Dimensions: With the cooking area’s vast circumference at 75 x 70 x 90 cm, the food possibilities are limitless. From huge pizzas to bread, casseroles, pasta, and pretty much any kind of meat you want to smoke, you can practically replace the oven that is inside your kitchen with this beautiful fixture.

Indoor/Outdoor Use: This is for outdoor use only, and believe me, it will become one of the most delicious statement pieces on your patio.

Colour Options: One of the best parts about this oven is that you are given almost complete design control. You can paint or tile the exterior whatever colour or pattern you choose, and you can even buy (or if you feel up to it, build) a base that fits in with the rest of your yard.

Gas: Burns coal or wood, whichever you prefer.

This model is made with terracotta brick and an iron face door, which holds the heat in. The high-quality materials are also crack-resistant, ensuring your oven stands up to the elements and lasts as long as possible.

 

Where Can I Use This Oven?

You can use this anywhere that you feel like having pizza. Mostly, these ovens should be put in gardens and patios to lower the risk of a fire.

 

What Makes This Oven Special?

This traditional feel will make you think that you have had this pizza oven for your whole life, and with how sturdy it is, you very well could have it for the rest of your life.

The Lisboa also has a built-in door thermometer so that you will know exactly the right time to put your pizza in. When you take cooking pizza as seriously as I do, this thermometer is a lifesaver. The last thing that you want to do is put your pizza in too early because it would not have the delicious crispiness that wood-fired pizzas are famous for.

 

Why Should I Buy This Oven?

With the purchase of the Lisboa oven, you also get a CD with recipes and tips to get you started on your wood fired experience, the crack repair kit, and a beautiful pizza peel that will make you feel like you are your own personal chef.

Our Verdict

This is overall a great deal for the whole oven, the recipe CD, the crack repair kit, and the pizza peel, but you do have to account for the installation as well, because it will require more than a couple of lads to lift, no matter how strong they are.
