Pizza Ovens: Compare and Contrast

Gustavo Glenmorangie | Apr 24, 201510:41 AM

I'm looking at pizza ovens and would really welcome input based on peoples' experiences with them.

Uuni 2: Wood pellet fired from Finland. Claims 800 degrees and puts out a pizza in 2 min. This is my current leader.

Alternatives are a set of propane-fired ovens:


Pizzeria Pronto (looks enough like the PizzaQue that I expect it's the same thing with a Williams-Sonoma badge and an extra $100 on the tag)

Camp Chef Italia.

Finally there's the Blackstone, but I neither need nor want the stand.

So, anyone with experience with any of these? There's some stuff here about the W-S Pronto but not much else I can find.

Interested in knowing how hot yours gets and how close you can get to a real, Neopolitan-style pizza. What I think I'm finding is that none of the propane devices will do the job of the Uuni 2.

And, of course if you have something else that gets the job done well for approx the same price point ($300 or so), I'd be delighted to hear about it.
