Breville Smart Oven® Pizzaiolo Pizza Oven

This is our favorite pizza oven of all time but we acknowledge that you need to eat a lot of pizza at home to justify the sticker price of the Breville Smart Oven.

It delivers a “wood-fired-style pizza” in under three minutes most of the time, which is impressive but it also takes nearly 20 minutes to warm up in the first place.

However, there is no doubt at all that the pizzas that come out of this oven are a cut above the rest.
