What are the benefits of a portable pizza oven?
Aside from cooking up an array of mouthwatering dishes, investing in a portable pizza oven offers even more benefits.
1. Space-saving & easy to store
Portable pizza ovens are incredibly convenient as you do not have to sacrifice a portion of your garden to house a permanent pizza oven structure. Instead, you can move your pizza oven around to a place that suits the occasion or need. Some portable pizza ovens can also be easily packed away and stored, so when you’re not using your outdoor oven, you can stow it away safely, ready for next time.
2. They cook just as well as a fixed pizza oven
You may be wondering if a portable pizza oven can cook a delicious pizza to the same standard as a purpose-built, permanent pizza oven? Well, the short answer is, yes! You don’t have to compromise on the quality of your food with a portable pizza oven, and you can create the best quality homemade pizza that will have your friends and family seriously impressed.
3. You can cook more than just pizza!
A common misconception is that you can only cook pizza in your portable pizza oven. This isn’t the case – You can cook whatever you wish in your pizza oven, whether it be crispy jacket potatoes, traditional ‘all-in-one -pot’ dishes or slow-roasted meat such as ribs. The choice is endless, and part of the fun is trying out new dishes.
The best portable pizza ovens
Take a look at some of our favourite portable pizza ovens from our outdoor living range. You can choose from wood-fired outdoor pizza ovens or gas-fired pizza ovens. Both fuel type ovens will create a mouthwatering result therefore your decision may just come down to preference.
What are the differences between a wood-fired pizza oven and a gas pizza oven?
With wood-fired pizza ovens, the dry flames can help to caramelise the sugars in your dough which offers a quicker cooking time and that distinctive earthy taste. However, wood-fired pizza ovens are somewhat harder to get used to and require more effort to achieve the best result. On the other hand, gas-fired pizza ovens are typically easier to use and do not require any pre-heating so you can be ready to cook with the flick of a switch.
A real showstopper, the Fontana Piero Gas & Wood Fired Pizza Oven offers the convenience of cooking with gas fuel or wood depending on what you’re cooking and how you’d like to flavour your food.
