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.


  • Outdoor pizza oven (optional). This recipe works great with pizza ovens, but the dough works perfectly with kitchen ovens as well.


  • 1 batch NY-style pizza dough, prepared
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 28-oz. can of Bianco DiNapoli crushed tomatoes
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 cup low-moisture mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 6 oz. Stracciatella cheese
  • 3 tbsp Mike's Hot Honey
  • Freshly torn basil, for topping
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!


  • Prepare your NY-style pizza dough a day in advance.
  • To a saucepan over medium heat, add the olive oil, garlic, oregano, and crushed red pepper flakes. Cook for 1 minute, then add the crushed tomatoes and salt. Bring to a simmer and remove from the heat.
  • Preheat your outdoor pizza oven for 20 minutes on medium heat (NY doughs cook better at temps around 700F). Alternatively, preheat your home oven to 550 degrees F with a pizza stone or steel.
  • Stretch the dough out thin, about 16". Place onto a pizza peel. Top with some sauce and a thin layer of mozzarella.
  • Launch into oven and onto the stone/steel. Bake for ~6 minutes until the pizza begins to brown. If using a home oven, after the 6 minute bake, set the broiler to its hottest setting. Watch closely and remove the pizza when the crust and cheese obtains a good color, 1-2 minutes.
  • Transfer the pizza to a wire rack. Top with dollops of Stracciatella, a drizzle of hot honey, and freshly torn basil (and extra sauce, if desired).
