Ooni makes portable wood-fired pizza ovens that let you flex your chef skills at the campsite or in your own backyard. The Scotland-based company started as a personal quest to improve home pizza. Unsatisfied with the results from a traditional home oven, Ooni's founder Kristian Tapaninaho designed and built a pellet-fired pizza oven for his backyard. Now, Ooni ovens are coveted camp cookware for anyone looking to make pro-level pizza outside.
Ooni pizza ovens take less than 20 minutes to fire up, and you can heat them by propane, wood pellets or gas. The super-hot oven and open flame lets you achieve restaurant quality slices. They come in a range of sizes, each compact and portable. Some ideas: take your Ooni camping for a brag-worthy meal or host a pizza party for your friends at the beach. (Ooni’s soft cover bags also help make transport a breeze.) You'll want to cement your status as a pizza chef with the essentials. Grab an Ooni pizza peel and upgrade to a sturdy cooler to keep your dough, mozza and campfire bevvies nicely chilled.
As a member of 1% for the Planet, Ooni contributes to causes that support food security and climate action. And the name? It's the phonetic pronunciation for "Uuni," which means oven in Finnish.
