Verbija S. of New York – Casa2G80

“Our family has always loved pizza, I mean who doesn’t? When we decided to renovate our yard, the one thing we all discussed as a family that was a “must have” was a pizza oven. The simplicity in having a gas and wood burning pizza oven is one of the things we love most about having a pizza oven, besides being able to cook pizza in your own backyard of course.”

Kevin D. of Michigan – Toscana80

“We installed our Toscana80 in our party barn. We incorporated it into our rustic farm decor and it fits perfectly! We love having friends and family over and making great pizzas for everyone!”

Gerald R. of Indianola, WA – Primavera70

“We designed and built our pergola this winter. We hoped to have many pizza parties this summer. Well…the parties haven’t happened for reasons we all understand, but our weekly bake day has.
It’s taken us a bit to learn how to fire the oven and time our dough so that it’s ready when the oven is, but we have figured it out, and we are getting great results. On a typical bake day – we can bake a couple batches of Naan while the oven cools, then have plenty of heat left for at least two batches of bread. Our oven performs beautifully. We haven’t bought a loaf of bread this year!”

Gerald and his wife are fantastic bread makers in their Primavera70.

Paul G. of Michigan – Pompeii with 42″ floor

“I downloaded the plans probably 12 years ago and my son decided last summer that we should take on the project. It was a lot of work, but well worth it. Have to thank all the information from the plans and the forum site, couldn’t have done it without it. Cooks like a dream, everyone we know wants one.”

A beautiful example of a Pompeii Brick Oven. This style enclosure also works wonderfully with a Forno Bravo modular kit core.

Peter T. from Seattle, WA – Primavera70

“Hey there! I’m an ecstatic Primavera owner. Loving my oven so much. Here are some pics of the past year. Thanks! Keep up the great oven craftsmanship. It’s making a lot people very happy. :)”
