pizza oven icon I bought 15 pizza ovens to hands-on test.It’s a hobby, not an obsession! Here are the best pizza ovens.



  • 330 g Neapolitan pizza dough
  • 3-4 oz basic pizza sauce A homemade sauce from a can of high-quality San Marzano whole tomatoes is really simple; just puree and add salt!
  • 6 oz shredded whole milk mozzarella If using pre-shredded cheese, RINSE the cornstarch off and dry before using. This will create a much better cheese melt.
  • 1 pinch Parmigiano-Reggiano

Additional Toppings

  • Spicy soppressata sliced thin
  • Kalamata olives pitted, roughly chopped
  • Fresh basil
little pizza oven Seriously. I have a lot of pizza ovens.Let me show you the best after hundreds of hours testing. Read my in-depth pizza oven reviews!


  • Flatten and stretch dough into 14" pies.
  • Prepare your pizza by ladling sauce onto stretched dough and then sprinkling Parmigiano-Reggiano. Starting from the outside and moving inward, spread a light even layer of mozzarella. Top with soppressata and olives (to taste).
  • Preheat your Ooni (or other outdoor pizza oven) for 30 minutes. The oven should reach near 900F in this time. Using a pizza peel, place pizza in oven and cook for 2 minutes (+/- 30 seconds depending on color) rotating as needed.
  • Remove pizza from oven, top with fresh basil, and place on wire rack to cool for 2 minutes before slicing.


This is a Neapolitan recipe that uses 00 flour, so high heat is a must; home ovens are insufficient. Be sure to preheat an outdoor pizza oven to 900F before cooking. If you only have a home oven and pizza steel/stone, check out our NY Style recipe which works great with this.
