Take your outdoor kitchen or entertainment area to the next level with an outdoor pizza oven and you will be cooking pizza to perfection to the delight of your friends and family. An outdoor pizza oven is a great addition to your outdoor kitchen and will broaden your repertoire of tasty treats.

Other than cooking pizza, your pizza oven should complement the aesthetics of your outdoor kitchen and at the same time have the functionality to prepare, cook, serve delectable pizza to your lucky dinner guests. The design of your pizza oven will always be secondary to its main purpose – which is to cook amazing pizza – but if you’re shelling out for an oven, you may as well get one that is perfectly suited to your décor and functionality requirements.

In this post, we will take a look at some design ideas for the perfect outdoor pizza oven set-up.

Work Surface

The ideal pizza oven set up should have ample bench space, so that you can create your pizzas in the outdoor setting. That includes rolling your dough out for the bases and a place to put all your toppings, sauces and utensils.

The pizza oven will be the centrepiece and your benches should be either side of the oven for easy access, so you can work your magic on the fly. Everything should be within arm’s reach, at a suitable height so you’re not putting stress on your body. Being comfortable while you cook makes for a more pleasurable experience and the more pleasurable your cooking experience, the more likely you will use your pizza oven more often. The more you use your pizza oven, the more likely you are to eat pizza, and the more you eat pizza the happier life will be!

It’s not rocket science but a simple equation that equates to a more user-friendly cooking and eating environment and in turn, it will make your life more pleasant.


Of course, your pizza oven needs fuel and that fuel is wood. You’re going to need a place to store the wood. The best storage is option is directly under the wood pizza oven. It’s the perfect spot and will save you time and effort when it comes time to stoking the fire and getting it piping hot. The benches either the side of the fire should be fitted with cabinets, so you can easily store all your utensils for making pizzas. Things such as cutting wheels, serving trays, and pretty much anything else that will make your life easier when it comes time to cooking and serving your delicious wood fire pizzas.

Cosmetics and Positioning

Pizza ovens are quite large, so positioning it in the right place is crucial to maintaining an optimum workspace and aesthetic to your outdoor setting. A good spot is in a corner away from any thoroughfares so you can easily move around. Pizza ovens come in all shapes, sizes, and colours. When you choosing your pizza oven, opt for something that blends with your existing motif and you can’t go wrong.
