Why we love Ooni pizza ovens
You don’t need to go to culinary school to learn how to cook your favorite meal at home. If your favorite meal is pizza, though, your kitchen oven is unlikely to turn out the pizzeria-quality slice you’re craving.
With a compact outdoor pizza oven from Ooni, every night can be pizza night. Ooni ovens reach temperatures that are double what most household kitchen ovens can achieve. It is these blazing hot temperatures that make for incredible homemade pizza, all at a fraction of the cost of a traditional pizza oven.
Ooni Ovens We Carry
The Ooni Karu Wood and Charcoal Fired Portable Pizza Oven gives you the flexibility to cook with wood, charcoal, or gas, all in one compact pizza cooker. While the original Ooni pizza ovens were fueled solely by wood pellets, the firebox in the Ooni Karu is designed to burn kindling-sized wood pieces or charcoal, so you can cook with the materials you already have on hand. If you prefer gas heat, you can add a gas burner attachment (sold separately) and connect your oven to a propane tank.
The Ooni Karu weighs just over 26lb, and its foldable legs and removable chimney make it easy to pack away, or even bring it along on your next camping trip. The ceramic-fiber insulated stainless steel body is thoughtfully designed with cool-touch handles, keeping your hands safe from the blazing heat inside when you need to open the oven.
The Ooni Karu comes with an extra-thick baking stone designed for optimum heat retention and is suitable for cooking a 12” pizza.
The Ooni Koda Gas-Powered Outdoor Pizza Oven says it all in its name: it’s a gas-powered outdoor pizza oven with built-in gas ignition and adjustable heat dial. The Ooni Koda shares all the best features of the Ooni Karu and other Ooni stoves. At just over 20lb, it is lightweight and portable, so you can store it away when you need the space or take it along when you hit the road.
Constructed with a powder-coated carbon steel shell, the Ooni Koda reaches and maintains the 900+ degree temperatures necessary for cooking mouthwatering pizza in a mere 60 seconds. With a stone baking board, propane tank gas regulator, and hose included, it’s ready to use right out of the box without any additional assembly—unfold the legs, connect to your gas tank, and get cooking!
See what our team is saying about Ooni Ovens:
“We never realized how easy and fun it is to make great tasting pizzas at home in such a short amount of time. The family aspect of making your own dough and adding the different ingredients together while making a mess in the kitchen is part of the whole experience. Oh ya, and the end result is some of the best pizza!!!”
– Robb Branson, Owenhouse A.C.E T.E.A.M Coordinator & Ooni Oven Owner
How do Ooni pizza ovens work?
There are two ingredients that make great pizza that you can’t buy at the grocery store: heat and speed. That’s where Ooni outdoor pizza ovens come in. In 15-20 minutes, Ooni pizza ovens achieve temperatures greater than 900 degrees F no matter which fuel type you choose. As the Ooni oven heats up, so does the pizza stone. The stored heat in the stone and circulating air of the pre-heated oven make quick work of transforming your raw ingredients into a perfectly chewy crust with a crisp base and perfectly melted cheese in as little as 60 seconds.
What’s the difference between the Karu & the Koda?
While both the Ooni Karu and the Ooni Koda cook up delicious, -12” pizza, the Ooni Karu is fueled by wood, charcoal, or gas. In contrast, the Ooni Koda is a gas-fueled model with a built-in ignition and adjustable heat dial. Both come with a 12” Ooni Pizza Stone and heat up in 15-20 minutes, achieving a max temperature of 932 degrees F.
Ooni also manufactures the Ooni Koda 16 Gas-Powered Outdoor Pizza Oven, which boasts all the features of the Ooni Koda and is designed to cook 16” pizza.
How do you clean Ooni pizza ovens?
Running your Ooni pizza oven at its maximum temperature will burn off any food remnants. If necessary, you may wipe down the inside with a dry paper towel once the oven has cooled completely.
The pizza stone is not dishwasher safe. To clean the pizza stone, wait until the oven has completely cooled and then flip the stone—you can cook your next pizza on the opposite side and let the high cooking temperatures naturally clean the underside. If there is any hard-to-remove debris or stuck-on flour, use the Ooni Pizza Oven Brush to scrape away stubborn remnants once cool.
Once your Ooni pizza oven is completely cool, you can wipe down the outer shell with a damp cloth and then dry the surface immediately. You should not use products containing harsh chemicals or abrasives to clean your Ooni Oven.
