Pizza delivery will always be a go-to option when you're hungry, but there's something extra rewarding about cooking your own pizza.
Doing so with fire... even better.
But you can't just shove a pizza on a stick and hold it over an open flame.
So here's the Pi Pizza Oven, a new product from Solo Stove that lets you make wood-fired pizzas in your backyard. Orders are live now, and ovens will begin shipping in May.
The Texas-based company got its start with camp stoves and smokeless fire pits, so they're well-versed in cooking and fire. At just 20-inches wide by 15-inches tall, and 30 pounds, the Pi Pizza Oven is portable, which is handy for gatherings that take place in someone else's backyard, at a campsite or anywhere else you might enjoy eating pizza.
The dome-shaped construction is designed for capturing, keeping and transferring heat to the cordierite stone surface, so your pizza cooks evenly and comes out crispy. It can bake 12-inch pizzas in just two minutes, with temperatures topping 750 degrees.
Wood is the only fuel source you need, and like the company's fire pits, the oven is engineered to reduce smoke. But there's also a dual-fuel version that accommodates propane, giving you the option to cook via gas burner.
Buy the pizza oven itself, or throw in a few accessories—the company is also selling a stainless peel and turner, a pizza cutter and an infrared thermometer.
You'll have to supply your own little packets of red pepper flakes.
