We cook thin-crust and thick-crust pizzas to assess the ability of the pizza oven to evenly cook a fresh pizza with differing base thicknesses to achieve a crisp, firm golden-brown base with evenly cooked toppings that are moist and not dried out, all within a short period of time.

Ease of use score
We assess how easy it is to cook in the pizza oven. We also check how easy the pizza oven is to move around and how stable it is when sitting on the bench or floor, as well as how easy it is to ignite, use the controls and clean.

The pizza ovens we tested are either wood-fired, gas, or electric. Electric pizza ovens plug into a powerpoint and are good to go; gas pizza ovens need a qualified plumber to plumb it in if it's natural gas, or to be connected to a gas cylinder like a BBQ; wood-fired pizza ovens either take wood pellets or wood logs and charcoal.
Cooking surface material
Some pizza ovens have a temperature gauge to let you know the temperature inside when you're cooking. However, note that these gauges may not always be accurate.
Does the pizza oven come with a pizza stone? A pizza stone conducts and holds heat and keeps the oven temperature stable when the pizza is added. It also helps with evenness of cooking and getting the base crispy.
