If you need a quick and perfect crunch in a time-tested, proven oven, this is the one for you. Featuring a modern re-imagining on the traditional brick oven, the Margherita pizza oven mixes efficiency and incredible speed with the authenticity of old world Italian cooking. The Margherita features a 24-inch by 24-inch cooking surface, and maintains a cold exterior that is touch-safe. Built inside and out with the 304 stainless steel, these ovens heat to temperature in an incredible 10-15 minutes, as seen in the Forno Toscano Oven Overview video. This oven works more like a traditional brick oven, where the fire is placed directly within the oven and kept to the side with a wood holder. Cook directly on the food grade cooking stone to obtain incredibly crispy brick oven crust. The insulating refractory brick layer beneath the cooking stone provides superior heat retention and will not break down over time. Two-slide-out handles and bottom caster wheels allow mobility for exact placement to your needs. For over forty years, all Fontana Forni products have been created at home in Italy with in-house metal fabrication for impeccable quality and attention to standards. Fontana Forni pizza ovens over thirty years old are still in perfect operation with minimal maintenance across Italy.

Things We Love:
On top of providing authentic Italian flavors, Fontana Forni pizza ovens are both durable and efficient. They pair 304 stainless steel frames meant to last for years with rock-based insulation that won’t break down over time and is especially resistant to constant temperature changes. These ovens use one-fifth of the wood consumed by traditional ceramic pizza ovens while reaching similar temperatures, saving you money on fuel and the time it takes to frequently feed a fire. Best of all, you can place food directly on the cooking floor with no additional accessories required!
Authentically Designed in Italy
There’s nothing quite like a true Italian pizza, and that’s just what you get with a Fontana Forni oven. Beyond their wood-fired fueling method that provides authentic taste and experience, these ovens are made with refined Italian craftsmanship and quality European parts. Fontana Forni has produced Italian-style pizza ovens for more than 40 years, and some of its models in Italy are still fully operational after three decades of use! These ovens, which are available in the Fontana and Forno Toscano Series, are smartly designed with domed chambers that eliminate hotspots and ensure even heat distribution.
Rosso and Gusto Collections are Built for Efficiency
The Fontana Series includes the Rosso and Gusto Collections, which both reach their ideal preheat temperature in 45 minutes. These low-maintenance pizza ovens are separated into three sections: The bottom area stores wood, the lower fire chamber creates the flames, and the oven holds your food alongside a convection fan that evenly distributes heat. For cooking versatility, the Rosso and Gusto models have three removable racks on which you can place other foods or pizza stones to cook additional pizzas. Heat-control features include an adjustable valve, cast iron door, and front-side damper, while the ovens have internal lights and a built-in timer for convenience.
Forno Toscano Collection is Stylish and Versatile
With three different pizza oven lines available, the Forno Toscano Series allows you to choose the model that best fits your needs. The 39-inch Mangiafuoco ovens have a 768-square inch cooking area, and the smaller 31-inch Margherita units can fit food over 576 square inches. If you need a pizza oven that can perform well in heavy-duty situations, the 39-inch Marinara and its 1,024-square inch cooking surface might be just what you need.
No matter which collection you choose from, every Forno Toscano Series pizza oven can reach 750 degrees Fahrenheit in just 30 minutes. They boast high-end temperatures around 850 degrees yet maintain a cool-to-the-touch exterior for safe operation. Despite working like traditional brick ovens, these models don’t need to be put through the lengthy curing process before first use, so you can start cooking immediately!
Things To Consider:
Depending on the Fontana Forni model you choose, some assembly may be needed. The Fontana Rosso and Gusto Collections require no assembly or installation, but the cart they come with will need to be put together. The Forno Toscano models, meanwhile, can be placed on a cart or a countertop. For these pizza ovens, the cart will need to be installed, but the oven alone won’t.
Rosso and Gusto units must go through a seasoning process before being used for the first time, or you’ll risk damaging the finish on the oven. To do this, simply build a small fire and slowly add larger pieces of wood to bring the oven to at least 500 degrees. Don’t exceed 600 degrees and let the fire burn for about two hours before cooling completely. Also keep in mind that wood-fired ovens require more attention than gas-fueled alternatives. Fontana Forni pizza oven domes carry a four-year warranty, while all other parts have a warranty lasting two years.
