Authentic Pizza Ovens is one of the top wood fired pizza oven brands in the industry - and for good reason. In a market that was once largely dominated by the Italian pizza oven, the old world brick ovens made in Portugal offer a breath of fresh air in a once stuffy collection. Widely known for their traditional brick Pizzaioli wood fired oven, you can easily cook amazing wood fired pizza in any of their wide range of models.
Compare their ovens to any other outdoor pizza oven on the market, and it's not hard to see why an Authentic Pizza Ovens traditional oven is the perfect choice. Here are 3 reasons why:
Each oven is crafted in a town in northern Portugal by a family that's been building these ovens for decades. You can feel confident knowing that your pizza oven will last for generations to come!
Mostly known for their popular line of countertop and built-in pizza ovens, Authentic Pizza Ovens also offers the more transportable Maximus oven series which quickly became a best seller. Along with that, the Maximus series offers one of the largest cooking surfaces on the market, and it's hard to pass up at such an affordable price.
Choose the option best suited for you!
There are 2 distinct styles of Authentic Pizza Ovens built in and countertop wood fired pizza ovens: Pizzaioli (made for pizzas), and the Lisboa (all purpose).
Each oven comes in a Standard and Premium version. But what's the difference?
The Standard version is the first model Authentic Pizza Ovens came out with. Think of it as version 1. This version has a door and chimney that's made of a mixed metal. These mixed metal components are not rust proof and require upkeep to keep them from rusting out. To remedy this concern for customers that don't want to have to constantly condition their ovens, Authentic Pizza Ovens created the Premium models. This is version 2.
The Premium models have a cast aluminum door and stainless steel chimney. These upgraded components require no upkeep over the life of the oven. We like to think of the cost difference in the Standard vs Premium models as buying a lifetime insurance policy on your oven's components. A great, peace of mind addition for a small price difference!
The Pizzaioli series is by far their most popular, and includes one of the best sellers on the market - the Pizzaioli Premium. These traditional brick ovens rival any of the top brands in the market in features and quality, but still come at a reasonable cost. Each Pizzaoli comes with expert Portuguese build quality, large cooking surface (cook two 10-12" pizzas at once), and can cook up to an 18" pizza. No assembly required at delivery.
See what makes Authentic Pizza Ovens different from the rest
The Lisboa series of ovens are designed to be all purpose, without sacrificing the ability to cook up to two 10-12" pizzas. Similar to the Pizzaioli, these pizza ovens come with unmatched Portuguese build quality, large cooking surface but are uniquely rotisserie capable. They also have a double door that opens in two sections for added flexibility. The trade off when compared to the Pizzaioli is that these ovens' mouths aren't as wide. The largest pizza that can safely be accommodated is 14" in the Lisboa, whereas the Pizzaioli can accommodate up to an 18" pie. But due to the Lisboa having a taller door, it can easily cook larger meal options like turkeys and tall rising bread in-which the Pizzaioli cannot. No assembly required at delivery.
There are 2 different models of Authentic Pizza Ovens Portable Wood Fired Pizza Ovens: Maximus Prime (largest cooking surface), and the Maximus Arena (smaller cooking surface).
Each oven looks identical, comes in either red or black, and both are hand-built in the same fashion, so what's the difference?
The Maximus Prime is the larger of the two ovens with a cooking surface area of 35.4" wide x 35.4" deep. This is large enough to comfortably cook up to three 10" pizzas at once. Not to mention, for it's size, it heats up lightning fast with an average cold start to cooking temperature in 30 minutes! Plus, it comes 95% assembled at delivery.
The Maximus Arena is the smaller of the two ovens with a cooking surface area of 23.5" wide x 23.5" deep. This is enough space to easily cook up to two 10" pizzas and a great size for a small family. This oven heats up even faster than it's bigger brother at 25 minutes! Plus, it comes 95% assembled at delivery as well.
Cook more than just pizzas:
Having your Authentic Pizza Oven delivered without the tools needed to get the most out of your oven is a recipe for regret. It's like ordering a belt but forgetting your pants! Without these must have tools, you're stuck looking at your oven in the backyard and unable to fire it up.
Don't forget to grab these with your order if you don't have them already!
