Maximus Prime is Handmade in Portugal
When you started looking for a wood fired pizza oven, chances are you probably thought about Europe. And when we at Pro Pizza Ovens think of European pizza ovens, we think of thousands of years of high quality pizza oven craftsmanship. An oven build by hand and that skill passed on through generations.
You probably thought the same thing.
Authentic Pizza Ovens stays true to that thought. They work hand-in-hand with a multi-generational team of Portuguese artisans located just north of Lisbon, Portugal who have been handcrafting Portuguese style pizza ovens for decades.
All of Authentic Pizza Ovens pizza ovens are built in Portugal using local materials to ensure reliable year-around cooking. Every oven is uniquely engineered to withstand the extreme temperatures of the United States vast climates, so you can feel confident knowing your oven will last in any season.
So enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing no company is as committed to sourcing and building genuine, Portuguese style pizza ovens than Authentic Pizza Ovens.
Maximus Prime Features Triple Insulation and a High Quality Construction
Insulation and quality of construction is very important when choosing a wood fired pizza oven. Neglecting to think about how the oven is built and the types of materials used in that build could cost you thousands of dollars in the long run.
Don’t make that mistake.We’ve seen it too many times and frankly, it hurts our hearts.
But don’t fret, Authentic Pizza Ovens has you covered.
The triple insulation construction and build quality of this portable wood fired pizza oven is unmatched, especially for the price point. It’s hard to find an oven that’s built in this manner without spending thousands of dollars more to get a similar result.
The outer wall of this oven is made of high-grade aluminum, to make it lighter. And the inner wall is constructed of double wall stainless steel with a high temperature, special ceramic blanket sandwiched between. Stainless steel is a perfect option thanks to its resistance to salt and sea corrosion if you live near the coast.
What about the rest of the oven? The floor is made with refractory cement floor tiles to retain heat, while the inside structure is built of forged iron for long lasting durability. The decorative brick facade face is composed of refractory cement to add another layer of heat retention.
What does all that ultimately mean though? This creates an oven that’s light enough to move around, to retain its heat for long periods of time, but it also makes it so that the outside is cool to the touch despite the high temperatures on the inside. With the door closed, the oven’s heat can be retained for hours due to the quality of its insulation and overall build.
Maximus Prime has a Flexible, Countertop Design
Here at Pro Pizza Ovens, we've had the pleasure of speaking with a lot of customers over the years. And one of the biggest regrets we hear from pizza oven owners, time and time again, is the fact that they sold their home or business, and they couldn't bring their pizza oven with them.
Oftentimes they describe it as “feeling like they’d left a part of them behind.”
With the Authentic Pizza Ovens Maximus Prime Countertop Wood Fired Pizza Oven you don’t have to make that gut wrenching decision. This oven is built to be flexible in its placement. You can set it wherever you’d like as long as the countertop can support its weight. And if you ever have to move, just take it with you!
Don’t leave your new oven behind, make sure you consider a portable option for your next pizza oven.
Maximus Prime Uses a Unique, Patented Barrel Design
What's the first thing you notice when you look inside this countertop pizza oven? Its barrel shape, right?
While most of the industry is stuck replicating the traditional, low dome design, i.e. igloo shaped ovens. Authentic Pizza Ovens has successfully charted a new path. A round, barrel shaped dome.
The main benefit of the barrel shaped dome is the way in which the oven drafts. The fire, like most wood fired ovens, is built in the back of the oven. The heat rises then circles around the back of the oven and roof to the mouth of the oven. All standard stuff.
But here’s where it gets interesting.
Authentic Pizza Ovens has designed a second layer above the main cooking area where the heat and smoke are funneled from the front of the oven BACK TO THE BACK of the oven, then out of the chimney. By doing this, it allows the heat and smoke to pass over the top of the oven a second time, giving you that bubbly crusted pizza and true wood fired taste.
The Maximus Prime is the #1 Choice of Top Local Chefs
Authentic Pizza Ovens brand pizza ovens aren't just known for their Portuguese style and value packed price point. They perform! And when top chefs look for an oven for their home or business, they look to Authentic Pizza Ovens to attain that true, wood fired taste.
So next time you head to your local pizzeria or wood fired restaurant, take a look at what they’re cooking in. Chances are you’ll see an Authentic Pizza Ovens brand pizza oven cooking your favorite meals!

Authentic Pizza Ovens Maximus Prime Warranty
Authentic Pizza Ovens performs in-depth, precise quality checks before any of their ovens are shipped to customers. Aside from dropping the oven there is nothing that can break, with that being said over time your oven's refractory floor tiles may begin to crack. This is a normal occurrence and should be expected to happen over time. It does NOT affect the oven.
As you do your research you will find that this is the case with all handmade Portuguese wood fire ovens. Therefore, a warranty does not extend to the normal cracking. Personally, we think it adds character and is recognized in Europe as a sign of a well seasoned oven.
