Contact The Pizza Builders for sizes, prices, shipping information, and (optional) a quote on installation at your site. Except for the factory assembled models (which require considerable access space to install) all our ovens require a custom-made stand, additional insulation, plus the enclosure of your choice. Every oven should be mated to a double-walled, insulated, stainless steel chimney, although a heavier masonry chimney can be used.
Modular and fully assembled residential ovens are available with cooking floors from 31 inches to 39 x 47 inches. The basic kits vary in price from $2150 to $6500 for a fully assembled unit. These prices are in $US and do not include shipping, duties, installation materials or custom installation by The Pizza Builders.
The commercial ovens we offer can be found in pizza restaurants throughout Italy, especially in Naples, where many people say the best pizza in the world is made. Whether fully assembled or modular, these ovens are designed to withstand the rigors of high temperature cooking 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
These modular and fully assembled restaurant ovens are available with cooking floors from 47 to 73 inches. The basic kits vary in price from $6350 to $15,500. These prices are in $US and do not include shipping, duties, installation materials or custom installation by The Pizza Builders.
The Pizza Builders team of artisans will handle as much or as little of your project as you wish, whether simply giving guidance by phone or email, or providing a complete installation from the ground up. We can also teach you about all the aspects of using your oven, from firing to pizza making.
