The Mediterrani Royal Outdoor Wood Fired Pizza Oven by Garden Secrets is a top of the line pizza oven. If I could choose any pizza oven to have in my garden, it would probably be this one.

Its one of the best ovens on the market – it comes fully assembled, holds heat like a dream, has a large cooking area, and can cook a pizza through in about 45 seconds. It’s also great for cooking breads, casseroles, and just about anything else that you might put in a conventional oven.

Who is This Pizza Oven For?

This is ideal for homeowners who have a good amount of space on their patio or garden. The oven is large, heavy, and really needs to be placed on a solid foundation of brick or stone. It would be a great addition to a dedicated outdoor cooking space.

Specifications

  • Weight: This oven is large. It weighs in at 520kg and easily requires 6-7 people to move. The lads might offer to help, but your best bet would be to hire a small lift or engine hoist and to make sure you know where you want to put it. The oven requires a strong and solid base, and once in place, moving it isn’t really an option.
  • Dimensions: The oven is a dome shape that is 100cm square. It has four layers of insulation, which leaves you with a huge 80 cm cooking space – big enough to cook 3 or 4 pizzas at a time. The huge cooking area and large door also make it very easy to clean!
  • Indoor vs Outdoor Use: Unless you own a pizza restaurant with a dedicated room and ventilation system for this model, it should only be kept outdoors. For an at-home pizza enthusiast like me, it would be a nice but permanent feature in my garden, and a centrepiece during parties and gatherings.
  • Colour Options: One of the downsides to this oven is that it’s not very handsome. The outermost layer is a terracotta brown colour with a red brick arch and a cast-iron black door and chimney. There are no other colour options, but its rustic appearance would fit in well in just about any garden.
  • Fuel Source: This is a good old-fashioned wood-burning oven, no other fuels required!

Where Can I Use This Oven?

It is intended to outdoor use. Just keep in mind that once you’ve chosen a spot for it, it’s going to be difficult to move it.

What Makes This Oven Special?

The size of the cooking area and the heat retention are two of the very best things about this oven. There is room to cook multiple pizzas – or other dishes – at the same time, and plenty of space to rotate them as they bake.

The layers of refractory mortar and insulation keep cooking times to a minimum. The chimney also comes with an adjustable choke so you can easily control the temperature.

Our Verdict

When it comes to outdoor pizza ovens, the Mediterrani Royal Outdoor Wood Fired oven is the best of the best, a pizza lover’s dream. It is very easy to use and clean, and its large cooking area can accommodate multiple pizzas at once. It cooks evenly and quickly – pizzas take only 45-60 seconds to cook, pies and casseroles take 10 minutes at the most.

It arrives quickly and comes fully assembled, so you don’t have to worry about uneven surfaces or cracking. It is large, heavy, and requires a solid base, so it is best suited to be the main fixture of your garden. A great addition to any outdoor cooking area, once you’ve cooked with the Mediterrani Royal Wood Fired Oven, you will want to spend weeks experimenting with different dishes and pizza recipes.
