Williams-Sonoma has some inexpensive outdoor pizza ovens for the typical home and garden area. However, Forno Bravo provides larger outdoor pizza ovens more suited for restaurant use.
Choosing the right pizza oven for a home or restaurant requires a lot of forethought. For a home, outdoor pizza ovens provide a new way to entertain guests. They are also practical in the summer when an indoor pizza oven or using the oven would heat up the home to an unbearable degree. Small outdoor pizza ovens are affordable, often $300 or less, and take up little patio space.
When selecting an outdoor pizza oven for a restaurant, the oven must be able to handle the number of pizzas that it must cook to keep up with demand. Looking into the commercial pizza ovens that Forno Bravo and manufacturers, such as Mugnaini, offer helps determine the restaurant's needs. These commercial outdoor pizza ovens cost anywhere between $8,000 and $20,000, depending on the size, design and brand of the oven.
Fortunately, the large commercial outdoor pizza ovens are versatile. Most have the ability make bread and cook other items for the restaurant patrons if it is large enough. When purchasing a pizza oven, it is always better to go with a slightly larger one even though it might be more expensive.
