To cook an authentic, Italian-style pizza, it’s well known that you need the right kind of oven.
However, we don’t all have the space to install a wood-fired oven in our backyard, nor the money, so many of us are often on the lookout for something in between.
That’s where Pizzeria Pronto comes in. It’s compact, portable, and cooks your pizza to perfection in just 5 minutes
The Pizzeria's Performance
The design of the Pizzeria Pronto means you get crispy, evenly-cooked pizza every time. One of the difficulties with making homemade pizza in a regular oven is trying to achieve that even, crispy base.
If your pizza isn’t evenly cooked, quite often you can end up with a crispy crust but a soggy base or toppings as a result of uneven heat distribution.
The Pizzeria Pronto has been specially designed to cook your pizza to Italian perfection: the moisture vent at the top of the oven releases moisture from cooking and prevents sogginess, while the dual-layer, interlocking cordierite pizza stone with a heat-diffusing hollow-core ensures your crust is evenly-baked.
The reflective heat shield redirects heat onto the top of the pizza, cooking your toppings at the same rate as your crust.
The Pizzeria Pronto may be compact and lightweight but it reaches cooking temperatures of over 700 degrees Fahrenheit, the temperature Neapolitan pizza is usually baked at.
The high heat results in pizza that is crispy without being brittle. Not only will your pizza be the perfect texture but the high heat ensures fast cooking time too - baking your pizza in just 5 minutes for ultimate convenience.
The other great thing about this pizza oven is that it’s versatile and multifunctional. If you’re worried you'll get bored of pizza or you're afraid of investing in a one-trick-pony product, fear not, as you can cook a host of other foods in the Pronto, from steak to vegetables, to pitta bread or goat’s cheese.

Design of the Pizzeria Pronto
The Pizzeria Pronto has a black enamel-coated steel body that is highly robust and durable. The oven has a vent at the top to release moisture and prevent sogginess, and also has a dome-shaped, heat-containing visor and stainless steel reflection plate which redirects heat to cook your toppings at the same rate as your crust.
In terms of dimensions, the oven measures 18.6 x 18 x 15.5 inches and weighs 26 pounds, so it’s pretty lightweight and portable and can easily be placed in your car or carried.
The design features a thermometer on the front of the oven to monitor temperature and a built-in matchless starter for easy, safe lighting. The raised legs of the oven also ensure safe use on any surface, making this oven highly versatile.
It comes with a specifically designed cordierite pizza stone to evenly cook your pizza, a 48 in. gas hose, and a standard regulator for Type 1 fitting. The oven needs to be hooked up to a standard 20lb liquid propane tank which isn’t included with the purchase.
The Pizzeria Pronto is pretty economical, with one bottle of propane lasting about 2 hours, meaning you can cook a lot of pizza given that they take only 5 minutes to cook.
This makes it perfect for family gatherings or parties where you need to accommodate a lot of people. Once you’ve taken one pizza off the plate, you can add the next one straight away.
There are very few drawbacks to the design of the Pizzeria Pronto. The only potential problem with the design of the pizzeria oven is the gap at the back of the oven, which means that it’s easy for your pizza to slide over the back edge when you remove it with the peel.
