Pizza Oven Manufacturer Adds Gas Option to Wood Fired Oven Kit Lineup

Salinas, CA  May 1, 2016 – Forno Bravo ( has announced that starting in May,  2016, they will offer a gas fueled option to their Casa and Premio lines of residential pizza ovens. The gas pizza oven can be used with either liquid propane or natural gas and both the ovens and gas burner are UL certified for outdoor use in the US and Canada.

“Our residential customers have been asking for a gas pizza oven for convenience and in response to local restrictions on outdoor wood fired cooking appliances in both the US and Canada,” stated Tim Cole, Forno Bravo Chief Operating Officer. “As a leading global manufacturer of pizza ovens, Forno Bravo is pleased to answer the building demand for this option,” he said.

The gas option will be available with the kit alone or with a pre-fabricated steel stand and hearth to house the burner unit. The burner provides a low (32,000 BTU) and high (66,000 BTU) output. When installed, the ovens can be used as wood, gas or wood/gas burning combinations. An upgrade kit for Forno Bravo oven owners will be available in June of 2016.

“Forno Bravo has offered a gas fuel option in our commercial ovens for over ten years. The gas option provides flexibility, requires less skill to cook and temperature control settings for high throughput restaurants. Now home owners can have the same convenience and, in many cases, comply with local regulations while enjoying the experience of an outdoor pizza oven,” Cole said.

The kits come with everything you need to build the pizza oven plus burner, control box, gas regulator, remote thermometer and gas leak detector.
