Want a user-friendly lightweight oven?

Perfect for outdoor parties and entertaining (or just because pizza is amazing), portable outdoor pizza ovens make achieving restaurant-quality pizza at home surprisingly possible. While you can use your regular oven or an indoor pizza oven to make a decent pie, these appliances can typically only reach a maximum heat of 500 degrees, which is 200 degrees shy of the 700-degree minimum that you’ll need to achieve flawless results. Simple, yet sleek, this workhorse makes cooking pizza easy as pie. (And you won’t dread moving it around.) 

Ooni Koda 12 Gas-Powered Outdoor Pizza Oven


Compact and reliable, this gas-fired oven is our recommendation for most home cooks who want to cook excellent pizzas outdoors quickly and easily. A gas flame located at the rear of the oven heated up the baking stone relatively evenly while also heating the inside of the oven. An angled heat deflector on the roof of the oven helped direct heat to the tops of the pizzas as they baked. It was easy to ignite the flame and adjust the heat using a dial located at the rear of the oven.

How We Tested Outdoor Pizza Ovens

To see if portable outdoor pizza ovens could allow us to make truly professional-quality pizza at home, we purchased six models, priced from about $260 to around $700, including models from the big-name pizza oven companies Roccbox and Ooni (formerly Uuni). All could be powered by propane. Three were multifuel models that also could be heated with wood fires, and two of those models could also be heated with charcoal. We baked dozens of thin-crust and Neapolitan-style pies, first using propane to heat all the models and then using wood and/or charcoal to heat the multifuel models. Our goal: a pizza oven that quickly and reliably got scorching hot, baked excellent pizzas in a variety of styles, and was simple and convenient to operate.

Winning Traits

  • Easy to assemble
  • When using propane, oven ignites quickly and heat output is easy to regulate
  • Cooking surface heats relatively evenly and averages about 750 degrees
