There's nothing quite like a homemade pizza with a crisp base and perfectly cooked toppings. We tested to find the best performing pizza ovens including electric, gas and wood-fired pizza ovens to find out which ones produce the best fresh thin- and thick-crust pizzas and are easiest to use. 

Shopping links on the CHOICE website

CHOICE is an independent, nonprofit organisation dedicated to helping consumers. Clicking a link will take you to a retailer's website to shop. While we make money if you buy through some retailer links, this doesn't influence any of our rankings. 100% of the money we make goes straight back into our nonprofit mission. We're currently testing this service and will consider providing more shopping links in the future. Tell us what you think.

Our expert testers put each pizza oven through its paces to find the models that:

  • cook the best thin- and thick-crust pizzas
  • can accommodate a roast and cook it well
  • are easy to use
  • are easy to clean.

Our interactive comparison tool gives you good and bad points for each model as well as the yearly running costs, and our Recommended list will help you quickly determine which models come out on top.

    Pizza score

    Expand to view more details.

    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

    Expand to view more details.

    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.

    Fuel type

    Expand to view more details.

    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.
