    I know Tony Piombo of Forno Piombo ovens in Napa CA. His family has been building some of the best pizza ovens ever made. I just don't have an extra $12,000 lying around to buy one.
    I've cooked pizza's on Forno Piombo pizza ovens with Anthony Falco of Roberta's pizza in Brooklyn NYC. The guy's flavor profiles are fricking insane. I've never seen anyone besides my Sicilian Nona that could throw ingredients together so effortlessly and make them taste so F'in good, the guy is a cooking machine and one seriously funny Mother F'er.

    I cooked one of these ovens, they are amazing. Although they do take some getting used to, cooking at near 1000* is a whole new level of cooking, things burn so fast it's ridiculous.

    I love the taste of food which is baked in wood fire oven. For this reason, I've been using ilFornino wood fired pizza oven from few years. Apart from different types of pizza I have tried veggies & chicken in this oven.

    I didn't build a pizza oven over the Summer, I have lots of excuses. I'm glad this thread is alive and well, and I appreciate all of the pics and posts, it's very inspiring! I did come across the Ooni Pizza oven which I'm considering. The user ratings are really good and it's very affordable compared to the bigger ovens. The Pro model ($599) can cook with wood, charcoal, or gas, and looks large enough to cook whole chickens, etc.
    Maybe Santa will put one under the tree for me this Christmas.

    I've cooked on an Ooni Pro it does a great job, the only thing I didn't like about them is the size. Even thought they are bigger than the OG Ooni's they are still a pretty small oven. So anything you cook on it has to be turned constantly because the food is so close to the heat source there is no where in the oven that has a constant temp for longer bakes like bread, beef or fowl. It's good for what it's designed for pizza, veggies and fish.:yes:tu
    If I had the money, I'd buy one for the simple fact that it cooks great pie's and it's movable so you can take it camping or to the duck club or friends house for a pool and pizza party.:tu
