Why we love it
Our pizza-making journey started many years ago and has evolved from a tiny BBQ grill with a micro pizza stone on Clinton Street in NYC (literally on the sidewalk in front of our storefront studio) to our home oven with a bigger pizza stone, and finally to this wood-fired workhorse that we use year-round in the Catskills.
We found this oven after weeks of research trying to find something that wasn’t too big, that had all the key components (insulation being key) and that could also be moved since we’re always changing up how and where we cook at our live/work studio in the woods.
The makers of this oven originally manufactured restaurant equipment, and then realized that they had some good ideas for taking that expertise and turning it into pizza ovens instead. You can order your oven online and have it shipped via Amazon, or you can call Il Fornino up and pick it up from their showroom in New Jersey and try to stuff it into your car in as many small pieces as possible (like we did).
We’ve had it now for over 2 years and we still use it multiple times a week without any issue. Have any specific questions? Hit Doug up on Instagram or check out some of his creations in his highlights 🙂
