Owning an outdoor gas pizza oven is a great way to impress friends and family while also feeding them delicious food made in your backyard. While a wood-burning oven may be a popular choice, it is not nearly as convenient or easy to use as one fueled by gas. Here are some of our top picks for the best outdoor oven.
Our staff picks are for two of the most well-known brands: Mont Alpi and Chicago. Each brand makes excellent ovens for outdoor use:
- The Mont Alpi Portable Propane Gas Outdoor Pizza Oven preheats in no time and cooks a delicious pizza in less than 5 minutes. You can also bake in it just like you would in your home appliance. Whether you want to cook a pie, rotisserie chicken, or Thanksgiving turkey, this countertop natural gas pizza oven can do it all. Plus, because it's a free-standing pizza oven, you can bring this appliance along the next time you go camping.
- The Chicago CBO-750 Built-In Countertop Hybrid has a two-burner gas system for superior cooking time and efficiency. But it doesn't just run on gas. You can also burn wood in the back of it for that authentic wood-fired flavor. This outside appliance can also cook at temperatures of 1000 degrees Fahrenheit and higher! Like the Mont Alpi appliance, you can cook more than just pizza in the Chicago countertop hybrid. For example, grilled meats, bubbling cheeses, and roasted vegetables are all possible with this appliance.
