On the lighter side of pizza ovens, we have the Napoli model. The wonderful people at Forno Buono make this stellar model – I also reviewed their Almalfi Pro model. Forno has placed their signature badge of honour on this smaller oven. Upon further research, I’m happy to say that I also approve of this classic Neapolitan rendition.

Forno Buono Amalfi Pro Wood-Fired Pizza Oven

4.1/5.0
Looks / Appearance 4.0 / 5.0
Ease of use 4.5 / 5.0
Functionality 4.0 / 5.0

Pros

  • – Great value for money
  • – Versatile
  • – Available in other styles
  • – Handy fuel shelf

Cons

  • – Accessories are not included
  • – Some parts may occasionally need replacing

As a pizza connoisseur, I am always on the hunt for the perfect outdoor pizza oven. My extensive research on the different types of wood-fired ovens has led me here: to the technological messiah of wood-fired pizza.

This Forno Buono Amalfi Pro Wood-Fired Outdoor Pizza Oven is the high-tech wood fired oven of my dreams. With a lot of the wood burning options, a lot of the heat escapes through the large hole in the front, meaning that a lot of the sought-after smoky taste is lessened.

However, the double skinned thermal lining on this oven means that more of the heat (and flavour) is kept in, requiring less fuel per pizza. And if you know me, you know that the less need for fuel, the more likely I am to make a purchase. I did not get into the pizza eating business to be constantly throwing wood into a burning fire.

KettlePizza Basic Pizza Oven Kit

4.6/5.0
Looks / Appearance 4.5 / 5.0
Ease of use 4.7 / 5.0
Functionality 4.7 / 5.0

Pros

  • – Great design and concept
  • – Affordable option
  • – Easy temperature regulation

Cons

  • The pan is on the more expensive side of the pizza BBQ oven range

The KettlePizza Basic Pizza Oven Kit is a great basic kit. It works as a stainless steel sleeve that you insert into your kettle grill barbecue. With the sleeve, your BBQ grill converts into a pizza oven! 

We have all encountered the familiar burnt crust, soggy middle combo of a poorly cooked pizza. However, you won’t come across this problem with this grill. Pizza requires a constant temperature at a high heat, which isn’t always obtainable with a regular grill. With KettlePizza, the equipment acts as a cooking chamber with an open front that helps regulate heat.

Forno Allegro Nonno Lillo Wood Fired Pizza Oven

4.6/5.0
Looks / Appearance 4.8 / 5.0
Ease of use 4.5 / 5.0
Functionality 4.5 / 5.0

Pros

  • – Compact if you’re short on space
  • – Great heat control and efficiency

Cons

  • – No cover seems to be available
  • – Small size

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.
