Forno Bravo mobile pizza ovens create a world of possibilities for owning your own food truck or pizza trailer.
Forno Bravo’s mobile pizza ovens have been used to pioneer the pizza trailer catering business since 2004. Many restaurant owners started in the mobile pizza oven business catering small to large events with a wood fired pizza oven trailer using a Forno Bravo pizza oven.
There are many ways to approach opening your very own mobile pizza oven business, and Forno Bravo wants to help you on this journey.

Why Forno Bravo Mobile Pizza Ovens in General
Forno Bravo authentic wood fired ovens are ideal for pizza trailers for several reasons:
Our oven domes are made with fiber-reinforced, commercial-grade refractory material which increases structural strength. Unlike clay or brick ovens, our mobile pizza oven domes can withstand the rigors of life on the road.
Our interlocking dome design provides industry leading heat retention, as opposed to traditional brick ovens or “butt-joint” designs, which break apart over time and allow heat loss.
Our ceramic fiber insulation provides better insulation (2 to 1 over vermiculite) allowing you to save space, weight, and retain heat longer than traditional vermiculite/concrete mixed hearths.
We control our own product, made in the USA in Salinas, CA. You don’t have to wait months for spare parts or warranty items; we stand behind our product.
Mobile Pizza Ovens for Trailers
Forno Bravo authentic wood fired ovens have been used in a wide variety of pizza trailers. Whether through a Forno Bravo partner who specializes in mobile pizza trailers, a preferred trailer integrator near you, or a do it yourself pizza trailer project, we offer a variety of pizza oven solutions for your business.
Professionale TE Commercial Pizza Oven Kit
The Professionale TE commercial pizza oven kit is our most popular mobile pizza oven option. It is available in two sizes, 44″ and 48″ internal cooking surfaces. Its stainless steel throat and integral vent design are several hundred pounds lighter than the traditional brick and mortar Professionale OK commercial pizza oven kit, making it ideal for trailers looking to reduce weight on the axles, without sacrificing oven dome and the thermal mass required for small pizzerias.
Key features include:
- Available in two sizes: 44″ and 48″ interior cooking round;
- Stainless steel oven throat with UL103HT rated chimney anchor plate for easy connection;
- 3″ oven dome using commercial grade refractory with integral vent landing;
- Firebrick 2.5″ cooking floor that is NSF-4 certified for use with food;
- 4″ ceramic fiber insulation blanket for side dome and 6″ above oven dome;
- 4″ ceramic fiber insulation board under oven dome;
- High-temperature mortar;
- Double wall insulated door with a built-in thermometer;
- Easy delivery using a lift gate — no forklift required.
The Professionale TE commercial pizza oven kit is the product of choice for Fire Within, an industry leading seller of turnkey pizza trailers.
Mobile Pizza Ovens for Food Trucks
Forno Bravo’s modular pizza oven kits can be used in food trucks in the same way as they are for brick and mortar pizzerias and mobile trailers. A key difference is that food trucks typically can bare more weight, so customers opt for the traditional Professionale OK commercial pizza oven kit, Modena OK commercial pizza oven kit, or a Viaggio Mobile Drop-In pizza oven.
Fully assembled commercial ovens are an option, but only when working with a professional integrator like Apex Specialty Vehicle, or other Forno Bravo Dealer partners. Our stands are not designed for mobile applications and need to have a professional integrator create the support structure necessary to handle up to a 7,000 lb oven.
Many of these companies offer a turnkey mobile food truck with complete kitchen and financing options.
Forno Bravo Mobile Pizza Oven Partners
Forno Bravo partners with industry-leading specialty vehicle companies. Whether you are looking for a food truck or mobile pizza trailer, Forno Bravo portable pizza ovens can be purchased as a turnkey product. We highly recommend contacting one of our partners before deciding to do a DIY trailer or work with an inexperienced trailer integrator. There is liability associated with building your own pizza trailer, and there is nothing worse than starting your dream business, only to have an unfortunate accident and lawsuit wipe you out.
