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:
The Forno Toscano series from Fontana Forni offers a beautiful, modern version of the traditional brick oven, allowing you to cook perfect, Italian-style pizza in your own backyard. In the past, owning a pizza oven required a major backyard DIY project to brick-in a permanent oven into your space, but the Forno Toscano arrives fully assembled (except for the cart) and is completely portable with slide-out handles and wheels, allowing you to move it around like a wheelbarrow. But don't think you have to sacrifice insulation for portability, as the Forno Toscano has a full 12 centimeters of natural rock-spun wool insulation surrounding the 3-millimeter-thick stainless steel cooking chamber, for maximum heat retention and cooking efficiency. The oven floor is made of two layers of brick, a refractory brick insulator and then the cooking stone on top. I really like that this oven heats up quick for cooking in under 15 minutes and has a damper control for complete combustion. They are backed by a 4 year warranty, which is a solid warranty in the pizza oven industry.
Forno Toscano ovens are entirely handcrafted in Italy by skilled artisans and are available in three different sizes with three colors to match your style.
Things To Consider:
It's important to consider the fact that cooking with traditional wood-fired pizza ovens requires more attention than the alternatives. Pizza ovens with gas valve controls or adjustable air intakes allow you to control the temperature with ease and simplicity, while wood-fired pizza ovens require more dedication to get the temperature exactly where you want it.
