Make the best fresh-baked pizza at home with Ooni Pizza Ovens Did you know that to make truly delicious, restaurant-quality pizza you need very high heat? Kristian Tapaninaho, who founded Ooni along with his wife Darina Garland, realized this after making merely “good” pizzas at home. Kristian made it his mission to cook a truly “great pizza” in the comfort of his home. Unfortunately, all of the wood-fired pizza ovens on the market were too large and pricey. This worked out in Kristian’s favor, like they say, “Necessity is the mother of invention.” Though “he wasn’t an inventor or an engineer, he knew he had a great idea. After a series of sketches, many prototypes and ongoing backyard testing, Kristian created the world’s first ever portable wood-fired pizza oven. Ooni – the fast, portable, cost-effective, kick-ass wood-fired oven was born!” states Ooni’s website. In 2012, Ooni (headquartered in Scotland, with teams in the US and mainland Europe) created the world’s first portable pellet pizza oven, allowing people to make amazing pizzas in their homes. I love my Ooni Koda 16 Gas Powered Pizza Oven. Now, my pizzas come out piping hot, with a nice crunch to the crust, and restaurant-quality. I can even cook meat and bread in it. But you don’t have to take my word for it, simply read their rave reviews online. This pizza oven is legit!
