What We Loved About Alfresco Pizza Ovens

What we loved about the Alfresco Pizza Oven Plus was how it instantly adds a new versatility dynamic to your outdoor cooking. It may be called a pizza oven, but this outdoor oven is capable of so much more. 

Adding an outdoor pizza oven is a great versatile addition to your outdoor cooking. Not only can you have a family pizza night whenever, you can use these versatile ovens to cook up an array dishes that your grill can't. As avid outdoor cooking enthusiast at BBQ Kitchen Pros, we took a deep dive into the capabilities of the Alfresco Built-in Outdoor Pizza Oven Plus. 

Alfresco Outdoor Pizza Oven - More Than Just Pizza

Alfresco stands behind its restaurant-inspired versatility when it comes to the Alfresco Pizza Oven. This dual burner pizza oven is capable of roasting, searing, baking allowing you to cook your entire cookbook right from your outdoor pizza oven. Alfresco Grills loves to take flavor to the next level featuring a stainless steel wood and herb box. This simple addition not only infuses flavor, giving you more cooking options, but can also serve a water pan for steaming. Alfresco makes these outdoor ovens available in both propane and natural gas to suit your needs.

Alfresco Pizza Oven Versatility

Infrared Blaze: Alfresco AXE Pizza Oven Delivers Crispy Pizzas in Just 3 Minutes!

One concern we hear from our customers when buying an outdoor pizza oven is burner power and even cooking. Wood-fired ovens and other gas pizza oven brands often fall short of even heat distribution and consistent temperatures throughout your entire pizza oven. Alfresco's pizza oven design eliminates all this with its dual burner design. Beneath your ceramic refractory cooking surface sits the heartbeat of this outdoor oven, a 21,200 BTU infrared burner. This infrared burner design provides superior heating from bottom up making you cooking surface a consistent temperature.  This is the secret behind the crispy pizza crust we all love on our pizza. 

In addition Alfresco provides a 18,900 BTU tuber burner hidden beautifully by a gas fire log, giving you the authentic appeal of traditional wood-fired cooking. This additional burner is designed to not only give you more consistent temperatures throughout your pizza oven but also accelerate your ovens pre-heating. With both burners firing, your Alfresco Pizza Oven can reach up to 1000°F competing with any traditional wood-fired oven.

Alfresco Pizza Oven Plus Superior Design and Build:

When designing this oven, Alfresco Grill sought to achieve and accomplish the same results as your traditional commercial grade pizza oven. These traditional ovens are constructed of enormous cast blocks and take up to 3-4 hours to preheat. The Alfresco design team wanted to break through barriers by giving you a versatile pizza oven that preheats quickly and still has durable construction from top to bottom. 

The exterior of our pizza oven is made from 304 18-8 Heli-arc welded stainless steel construction. This perfect blend of nickel and chromium makes 304 stainless steel the leader in the outdoor industry for superior durability against all four (4) seasons and any weather conditions. Heli-arc welding provides strong, corrosion-resistant joints without compromising the material's integrity, ensuring clean and durable construction that tops most competitors. 

On the inside, this outdoor gas powered pizza oven is constructed of 3/4-inch thick high quality ceramic slabs, both on the hearth and ceiling of your oven. This exceptionally insulated design allows for quick preheating, consistent temperature control, and the perfect crispy pizza with its ceramic hearth.

Alfresco's User-Friendly & Safety Features

What we like about Alfresco Grills is its design to give you safe and fun outdoor cooking. This outdoor oven features a sleek stainless-steel front with Safe Touch Control Panel, keeping you controls safe to use while cooking at high heat., seamlessly integrating into any outdoor kitchen aesthetic. In addition Alfresco features the automatic electric 110V ignition system for easy and safe lighting. High heat cooking can be a disaster and unsafe, especially if you're battling the high heat in your outdoor kitchen that your outdoor oven exhaust produces. Alfresco features a rear exhaust ensures a comfortable cooking experience, while the natural air-cooling panel keeps the control panel cool and operational.

Key Considerations

While this oven excels in many aspects, it's important to consider:

  • The space you have available as the oven comes in various configurations.
  • The requirement for a 110V power supply for ignition.
  • This oven's 24"x19" cooking space is ideal for one pizza at a time, perfect for personal or small family meals, but not for large or commercial multi-pizza cooking
