What is your perfect wood-fired pizza oven? Well for starters, it should cook perfect pizzas. Not only that, it should be functional and look great. Pizza ovens come in all shapes, sizes and finishes which is good for you, as the consumer, because you have wealth options at your fingertips. It can also make the task of choosing your pizza oven somewhat overwhelming.

At Sydney Heaters and Pizza Ovens, we are sympathetic to this conundrum so we thought we’d give you a helping hand. In this post we take a closer look at some finishing options for your pizza oven to make the job a little easier. When we talk about finishing, we are referring to colours, materials, and styles.


Pizza ovens are built from stainless steel, natural brick, or Beverly clay. They come in DIY kits or you can buy them pre-assembled. Regardless of which style you choose, you have the option to dress it up and make it look pretty by choosing colours and finishing styles. Entrance plates can be customised to suit your stylistic requirements. They come in a variety of different styles.

Stainless Steel Entrance Plate

The stainless steel entrance plate gives a clean, professional look at the opening of your pizza oven and is probably more suited a person who is going for a modern, contemporary feel. It looks great sitting beside your stainless steel prep bench and barbecue.

Luxury Granite Entrance Plate

The granite entrance plate is more of a rustically styled entrance plate and will give your pizza oven a traditional styling. Think of log cabins and old school Italians pizza ovens. Both entrance plates are good options and won’t affect the ovens performance. It’s a matter of your personal preference.

Colours and Finishes

There is a wide range of colours and finishes. The pizza oven you choose will depend on your budget and style requirements. The pizza ovens can be rendered in a variety of different colours from earthy neutrals, rich dark tones or even stainless steel.

There are also options to have your pizza oven built into a mantel. It basically looks like your pizza oven is built into the wall. This is a great option for those who want a regal look for their oven. The mantel can be built out brick or natural stone such as limestone, granite or marble. This is a great option if you have a few bucks laying around that you don’t mind spending it on your outdoor area. The results look amazing and will convert your outdoor kitchen into a rustic sanctuary fit for a gourmet guru.

When choosing the colour and finish of your pizza oven always take into consideration your existing motif or style of your outdoor area. This will give you a good idea of what colours and finishes will work and what won’t. If you’re having any doubts or need a second opinion come and see us at Sydney Heaters and we will happily help you find the perfect pizza oven.
