5 Reasons An Outdoor Pizza Oven Is The Best Gift

Gift-giving season is upon us, and we’re about to make your life a little easier. How? We just so happen to have created The Best Gift EVER. Something you can’t go wrong with even when it comes to the pickiest person on your list.

You see, here at Ooni, our mission is to share the gift of pizza and to help the world make pizza. We make pizza ovens. But not just any pizza ovens: World-class, take-anywhere, make-pizza-like-the-pros pizza ovens. And after nearly ten holiday seasons, we can say with certainty that unwrapping an Ooni oven will make someone in your life pretty darn happy.


Here are five reasons an outdoor pizza oven makes a great gift:

  • Having a pizza oven is fun. Lots of fun. This is just fact.
  • It makes throwing epic parties a snap (and increases their frequency)
  • We don’t issue official certificates, but we’re pretty sure that everyone gifted an Ooni oven is immediately and forevermore regarded by friends and family as a certified pizzaiolo
  • You will never cook again since the recipient of your present will soon begin making pizza every weekend (it happens, believe us)
  • Everyone loves pizza. Everyone!
  • Now that we’ve established that a pizza oven is the perfect gift for pretty much anyone, you know you can’t go wrong with any model (check out our full range here). But here’s the beautiful thing. Picking an oven for someone is also an opportunity to show (or show off!) how much you know them. See, the built-in stone baking floor in every Ooni model gets piping hot to ensure a crispy crust on each bake. But our ovens are designed with different kinds of pizza makers and locales in mind. If you’re buying an Ooni for someone you know well, consider which oven would best fit their lifestyle. You get to show your thoughtfulness. They love you forever. We’re pretty sure that’s how this works.

    Ooni Fyra 12 At just 9.98kg, this is an ultra-portable oven. It’s perfect for beginners and pros and anyone on the go, whether that means putting it in the car, carrying it over your shoulder, or just taking it out to the backyard. The Fyra is fantastic for lovers of the great outdoors. In fact, it was created with camping in mind—it’s a cinch to carry to almost any campsite. (Seriously, we’ve put this to the test.) While lightweight, the Fyra packs real power. Fed by hardwood pellets, this oven can reach a roaring 500° C in under 20 minutes. That means the nature enthusiast in your life will be churning out 12-inch pizzas in less time than it takes to pitch a tent.

    Koda 12 and Koda 16 Whether you need a gift for an enthusiastic home cook, serial hobbyist (we all know one), or a professional pizza maker looking to do popups, Ooni Koda is the way to go. These sleek machines hook up to a propane tank (9kg, 2.2kg, or 0.45kg) for precise, controlled cooking. Choose between the 12-inch, 9.2kg Koda 12 (for greater portability) or the 16-inch, 18.1kg Koda 16 with its innovative L-shaped flame (for one-turn cooking and those with bigger appetites).

    Karu 16 Our newest pizza oven. This one’s for the person who wants it all when it comes to cooking with our most advanced tech and almost any fuel source you could possibly want. Karu 16 is also the first home oven ever recommended by the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana. So you know it’s legit. (They’re the folks in Italy who safeguard Neapolitan pizza’s good name.) Karu 16 empowers you to cook with wood, charcoal, or gas. That’s pretty much the ultimate invitation to get creative. And in addition to the wide, 16-inch cooking surface, it also has a built-in thermometer, an awesome new glass door for viewing while cooking, and a higher inner cavity, and improved insulation, which makes it ideal for baking bread, roasting large meat joints, firing off skillet dishes, and, you know, making more pizza.

    Still can’t decide?

    Check out our side-by-side oven comparison to compare oven features (and visit our accessories page for other pizza-making tools they might need).

    Regardless of the model you choose, an Ooni oven is the gift that keeps on giving throughout the year and for many more to come. And if you play your cards right, it might just end up being a gift in perpetuity (free pizza) for you, too.
